Starring Diljit Dosanjh and Taapsee Pannu in lead roles, Soorma opened to decent response at the box-office. Helmed by Shaad Ali, who has previously helmed Saathiya (2002) and Bunty Aur Babli (2005), the movie pulled in ₹ 3.25 crore on its first day.

However, the buzz around the film is increasing as the word of mouth has been extremely positive. It will help the movie grow well over the weekend. If trade pundits are to be believed, Soorma will close out its first weekend with an impressive collection.

Trade Analyst Taran Adarsh took to his Twitter handle to reveal the first day collections of the movie.

“After a low start in morning shows [North India opening was good due to Diljit Dosanjh’s stardom], #Soorma gathered momentum from evening onwards… Is looking at substantial growth on Sat and Sun thanks to strong word of mouth… Fri ₹ 3.25 cr. India biz,” read his tweet.

The film is a sports biopic based on the life of hockey player Sandeep Singh.
