Soorma Box Office Collection Day 3

Soorma, the tale depicting the return of Indian hockey legend Sandeep Singh after a life-threatening accident, has earned a total of Rs 13.85 crore by its thrd day in theatres. The Diljit Dosanjh and Taapsee Pannu-starrer raked in Rs 5.60 crore on Sunday.

“#Soorma has decent weekend... Considering the low start on Fri morning, the biz did escalate over the weekend, but the jump on Sun wasn't substantial enough... Maintaining the pace on weekdays is important... Fri 3.20 cr, Sat 5.05 cr, Sun 5.60 cr. Total: ₹ 13.85 cr. India biz”, film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted.

Critics also had a mixed reaction to the film based on the life of hockey player Sandeep Singh. While many applauded Angad Bedi’s work in the film, others objected to how hockey itself was not given prominence in the film.

Soorma, which means warrior, tells the story of ace hockey player Sandeep Singh. Singh established himself in the international arena as a promising hockey player. However, in an unfortunate turn of events, an accidental gunshot in 2006 left him paralysed for a year. Through sheer grit and determination, Singh not only began to walk again, he returned to the national hockey team.

Talking about the film, Diljit said, “A role like ‘Soorma’ happens once in a lifetime. I learnt to play hockey from scratch. And it had to be hockey on a competent level. I was playing Sandeep Singh. I couldn’t afford to look like an amateur.

“I learnt the game from Sandeep Paaji and and his elder brother (Bikram Singh). By the time I was ready to face the camera I was confident of my game,” says Diljit.
