Amitabh Bachchan and Tapsee Pannu’s Badla has fared well at the box office. It has made around 22.5 crores over the weekend. According to Box Office India, the film showed growth over the weekend and has potential for sustaining the numbers.
The film met with competition from Captain Marvel which has so far earned 40 crores. Captain Marvel is the latest release from the Marvel Comics Universe where Carol Danvers (Captain Marvel) is first introduced to the audience. It has garnered fairly positive reviews and Brie Larson is set to also reappear as Captain Marvel in Avengers Endgame.
Badla, directed by Sujoy Ghosh, is a remake of a Spanish film, Contratiempo, or The Invisible Guest (2017). It shows Amitabh Bachchan as a lawyer and depicts Tapsee Pannu as a victim. The film repeats the dynamic between Amitabh and Tapsee as was seen in the film Pink.

Ajay Devgn, Madhuri Dixit, Anil Kapoor, Esha Gupta and Johnny Lever star in this slapstick comedy that revolves around a treasure hunt. Luka Chuppi, starring Kriti Sanon, Kartik Aaryan and Pankaj Tripathi is slowing down. It has so far earned 64 crores. Projected numbers for Luka Chuppi are looking at around 85 crores in total.
