Salman Khan's film 'Tubelight' already had a huge burden of expectations. Right from the first poster release of the Kabir Khan directorial, comparisons from the business perspective were being made with the magnum opus of the year 'Baahubali' and Salman's previous record-breaking films. 

Nobody expected anything less from the super hit pair of Salman Khan and Kabir Khan who had given us blockbusters like 'Ek Tha Tiger' and 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan'. But often films don't click with the audience and maybe 'Tubelight' had a similar fate.

The collections of the film at the end of the first week have been a little over 100 crores. The film has failed to create the kind of impact Salman's previous films like 'Sultan' and 'Kick' made. But the reason for the debacle isn't merely a weak story. 

With 'Tubelight', Salman's audience was expecting an emotional rollercoaster but it failed to hit the right chords and more so because of the slightly awkward casting. Salman and brother Sohail never looked like the young brothers in their youthful years. Also, the war with China could never hit the kind of impulse like what 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan' did with a Pakistan war. 

The reasons are many but right now 'Tubelight' has certainly disappointed Bhai's fans who were probably looking out for something else with the film. The film was an official remake of 2015 American drama 'Little Boy' and the critical reaction received by both films was almost similar.  

Here is the box office collection breakdown for 'Tubelight'.

Day 1 - Friday (June 23) - Rs 21.15 crore

Day 2 - Saturday (June 24) - Rs 21.17 crore
