Marvel Studios’ latest Thor: Love and Thunder took the fifth-best start ever for a Hollywood film ever in India on Thursday. The opening day gross for the space-viking fourthquel in India is Rs. 23 crores approx ($2.95 million), growing 125% from the previous Thor outing in 2017. With Love and Thunder, now there are five Hollywood movies to open over Rs. 20 crores in India, all five belonging to Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The general growth for MCU opening days in India in the last two years is amazing, where you have Thor 4 opening almost double Spider-man: Far From Home on the same date. Thor wasn't a conventionally popular superhero in India like Spider-man or Batman but had a huge surge in his popularity after Ragnarok and Infinity War.

The opening for the movie is below Doctor Strange 2 earlier this year, but A) this had a Thursday release versus Friday for Strange and B) Strange was a much bigger story event working off multiversal themes while this movie is more of a standalone adventure. Doctor Strange 2, however, had fairly short legs owing to the lukewarm reception. The initial reception isn’t a lot better here either, the BookMyShow audience score of 85% as compared to 82% of Strange, so there can be similar frontloaded-ness for the movie.
