Over the last two weekends, the film industry experienced a tremendous surge at the box office, with the much-anticipated toy adaptation Barbie from Warner Bros/Mattel and Christopher Nolan’s epic three-hour World War II-era drama Oppenheimer earning a combined global opening week of over $600 million. While Barbie is set to surpass Oppenheimer by a significant margin worldwide, the situation is quite different in India. In this market, the Nolan brand holds immense appeal, and film enthusiasts are eagerly flocking to watch Cilian Murphy’s performance in Oppenheimerdespite the escalated ticket prices. Interestingly, India is the only country where Barbie lags behind Oppenheimer by a substantial margin.
The movie Barbie, directed by Greta Gerwig and featuring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling in standout roles, enjoyed remarkable success during its first week at the Indian box office. Surprisingly, even on its second Friday, the film demonstrated exceptional resilience by holding its own against tough competition from Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani despite losing some screening opportunities. Despite its limited availability, the Greta Gerwig-directed film managed to accumulate an impressive Rs 1.50 crores nett. With such promising numbers, Barbie appears to be on track to achieve a commendable total of approximately Rs 40 crores nett in India, solidifying its popularity among Indian audiences.
