After Ranbir Kapoor's Sanju bringing back the season of biopics in Bollywood in a dhamakedaar way, this week saw the release of Diljit Dosanjh starrer Soorma. The flick is based on the life story of hockey champion Sandeep Singh also known as 'Flicker Singh' and how he battled against all odds and obstacles to emerge as a winner.
The film opened to mixed reviews but Diljit Dosanjh's portrayal of Sandeep Singh has been receiving praises from all corners. Speaking about the box office collection, trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, "After a slow start in morning shows [North India opening was good due to Diljit Dosanjh's stardom], #Soorma gathered momentum from evening onwards... Is looking at substantial growth on Sat and Sun thanks to strong word of mouth... Fri ₹ 3.25 cr. India biz."
Meanwhile, here's what the Twitteratis have to say about this Diljit Dosanjh-Taapsee Pannu starrer-
