The Omung Kumar-directed "Bhoomi", hailed as actor Sanjay Dutt's comeback film, recorded a decent opening with first day collections of Rs 2.25 crore.
The film also co-stars Aditi Rao Hydari. The movie deals with a father-daughter relationship.
With some good reviews from critics, the movie, however, faces a stiff competition from two Bollywood and one Hollywood movies. Shraddha Kapoor's "Haseena Parkar", based on the life of Don Dawood's real sister is expected to give a serious fight along with India's Oscar entry "Newton" starring Rajkummar Rao.
Also up for release this week is Hollywood movie "Kingsman: The Golden Circle" which is also expected to eat into some of the Bhoomi's audience share if not all.
Speaking of tough competition in a statement, trade analyst Girish Johar said, “All three films will perform well. End of the day, it all depends on the content. If three films have good content, they have excellent chances of survival at the box office.
"Kingsman: The Golden Circle", which features Colin Firth, might stand as a huge competition. The western media has already praised the film. It is likely to gain a lot of viewers from the metropolitan cities.”
