Bollywood Box Office: January 19-21, 2018

The North American box office quietly chugged along without any new Hindi movies to lure patrons into theaters during the weekend of January 19-21, 2018. Tiger Zinda Hai closed its fifth weekend with $43,600 from 24 theaters ($1,817 average), bringing its total to $5,884,047. Given its decent per-screen average — and the fact that Padman shifted its release date from this coming Friday to February 9 — Tiger Zinda Hai should stick around in a handful of theaters for another weekend.

Mukkabaaz has earned a decent amount for a movie in really limited release: $72,427 so far following a weekend that brought in another $9,759 from seven theaters ($1,394 average). That total belies a comical disparity in the contributions from the United States and Canada, with Canada accounting for just $972 after two weekends of release.

1921 earned $838 from five US theaters, bringing its total to $7,850. Its performance so far is comparable to that of its predecessor, 2016’s 1920 London, which posted first- and second-weekend per-theater averages of $426 and $197, respectively. 1921 averaged $458 and $168 in its first two weeks in theaters.

Fukrey Returns earned $72 from one theater in its seventh weekend of release, bringing its total to $396,604.
