*Day 4, Monday: 4.10 crores:* a remarkable 85% of its Opening Friday collections and a rare feat at the Box office; the audience footfalls at the cinemas remained the same as its Opening Day; (the marginally lower collection than Friday is just a result of lower ticket prices on Monday).
*Day 5, Tuesday: 3.81 crores:* Tuesday is usually a ‘special promotion day’ at many multiplex chains with discounts on tickets, 1+1 offers, etc.; so the collection value does drop. However, the film has maintained a steady pull for the audience and the collections are just a little short of its Monday Box Office number (4.1cr).

Parmanu is a true-life human story of the kind of intensity not seen often. It salutes the efforts of the Indian Army, scientists, bureaucrats, intelligence agencies and others who worked so tirelessly against all odds to ensure that India finds its due place in the World Nuclear Map. What we hope that the audience takes home is not just the experience of a pacy and edgy plotline but also a sense of pride for our country and its twin pillars of strength- Jai Jawan Jai Vigyan!
