Kaptaan movie of Gippy Grewal is doing an average performance at the Indian Box Office. Being released primarily in Haryana, Punjab, and Delhi, the film faced fierce competition from the Sarbjit and X-Men. Although the increasing temperature is also a reason resisting people to go out for a movie.

It features Gippy Grewal as Advocate Kaptaan Singh who has some extraordinary cases to dealt with in an amazingly funny way.
On YouTube, the songs and other videos including Tailors and Teasers had crossed 10 Million views aggregately. Although the number is not significant in comparison to the Yo Yo Honey Singh’s upcoming movie ‘Zorawar’. But still an average for Gippy Grewal’s offseason debug.
Kaptaan opened in a cold market with not much level playing, collecting only 80 Lakhs on the first day with not more than 15% occupancy.

On Monday, the movie did an average business of 29 Lakh rupees with around 10% occupancy in Delhi and 25% occupancy in the theaters in Punjab. On Tuesday, the similar trend was observed with only 27 Lakh rupees earned.
Overall the movie was a great short entertainer for the audience, but nothing can be seen to be hyped off. Released in hot days of Summer, Kaptaan collections were expected to suffer from the very first day.
The main reason of low on box office was not piracy this time. Rather the ticket’s cost was kept low being a TIPS movie.
