After being exposed to 1,800 screens in the country, Priyanka Chopra starrer 'Mary Kom' proved to be a winner at the box office as it earned most revenue from Delhi and Mumbai. After earning 28.32 Crores post the opening weekend, it has been learnt that the box-office earnings from the Northeast is just one percent. Though it has been reported that the shows of 'Mary Kom' have been going houseful in Assam and Meghalaya, the contribution to the overall collection has been disappointing.
The film about Manipur's Boxing Champion has been screened in over 72 cinema halls in Assam and just 2 cinema halls in Meghalaya. A lot of people from the Northeast have different reactions to the film. While a few people complained about the language pronunciations not being clear, the others wished the movie included more of Mary's struggle.
Another major point of concern was that emerged from this situation was that people in the Northeast are used to watching male actors in the lead role and found it difficult to relate to this film as Priyanka Chopra stole the show portraying the five-time world champion boxer Mary Kom. Whatever be the case, director Omung Kumar's directorial debut has definitely proved its worth at the box office and continues to win praises for Priyanka Chopra's outstanding performance.
Though the film drew in the masses over the weekend, the film's performance as off Monday was poor as it collected 3.75 crores, making the current total amount to Rs32 crores at the domestic box-office.
