Box-Office Report: Munjya topples Chandu Champion as Hamare Baarah fails to gain traction despite controversies

The Indian box office has witnessed an unexpected turn of events as the low-budget horror-comedy film Munjya has managed to outperform the much-anticipated Chandu Champion, starring Kartik Aaryan.

Munjya, which released on June 7th, has continued its impressive run at the box office, collecting over ₹65 crore in just 16 days.  The film, which features a fully CGI lead character, has managed to capture the audience’s attention and has become the talk of the town.

In contrast, Chandu Champion, which was expected to be a major box office draw, has struggled to match the success of Munjya. The Kabir Khan-directed sports drama, which tells the story of Paralympic champion Murlikant Petkar, has collected around ₹57 crore in 10 days, facing stiff competition from the underdog Munjya.

Interestingly, another film, Hamare Baarah, which has been embroiled in controversy, has failed to make a significant impact at the box office, despite the attention it has garnered with controversies. The film’s lackluster performance has been overshadowed by the success of Munjya and the ongoing battle between Chandu Champion and the surprise hit.

The box office performance of these films highlights the unpredictable nature of the industry, where a low-budget film can sometimes outshine the big-budget productions. Munjya’s success is a testament to the power of good storytelling and effective marketing, proving that a well-executed film can find its audience, regardless of the star power or budget.

As the summer box office season continues, it will be interesting to see how the competition unfolds and whether Munjya can maintain its momentum in the face of upcoming releases.
