Indra Kumar directorial Total Dhamaal opened to mixed response from the film critics but was lapped by the general audience and is receiving a lot of love at the box office. The movie opened well on its day one and went on to make a solid impact at the box office over its first weekend. During its weekdays, the movie held well at the box office and on its day 7, it collected Rs 6.5 crore taking its week one total to a huge Rs 94.55 crore.
Noted film critics, Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweet about Total Dhamaal's box office collection read, "#TotalDhamaal packs a superb total in Week 1, despite non-holiday release... Mass circuits/Tier-2 cities excellent... Metros/plexes good... Fri 16.50 cr, Sat 20.40 cr, Sun 25.50 cr, Mon 9.85 cr, Tue 8.75 cr, Wed 7.05 cr, Thu 6.50 cr. Total: ₹ 94.55 cr. India biz." With week one collections of Rs 94.55 crore, Total Dhamaal has now become the highest non-holiday week one earner for Ajay Devgn and the highest non-holiday week one earner for a comedy film.
Film critic further tweeted, "#TotalDhamaal has found widespread acceptance by families/kids... This factor will ensure ample footfalls in Weekend 2, despite two significant releases: #LukaChuppi and #SonChiriya... Week 2 will give an idea of its *lifetime biz* and whether it will touch/cross ₹ 150 cr."
