As one of Marvel’s most anticipated and well received films, Black Panther looks to be a winner at the box-office. However, it has been reported that the film will see a low first week collection due to its poor performance on day four. The Marvel superhero film seems to be facing a challenge in the growing competition from Disney’s animated film, Aladdin. The film opened to an excellent start and had collected an amount of more than Rs 400 crore on day one. The movie witnessed decent growth on day two and also managed to score a good opening on day three as well. However, Black Panther didn’t seem to be able to hold up for much longer as the movie failed to perform well in the week that followed. It is reported that the film suffered a fall of over 60% in its box-office tally in the week following its release. Black Panther is not just another Marvel movie but is an anticipated Afrocentric superhero which is the culmination of decades of representation in Hollywood.

About the film?
The film is based on the comic book series of the same name, created in 1966 by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. The story follows T’Challa, who after the death of his father becomes king of Wakanda. Wakanda is a fictional African country with powerful weapons and resources. The Black Panther comics were one of the most popular African-American titles at Marvel Comics. In director Ryan Coogler’s film, Ryan Coogler weaves into the narrative an interesting past for T’Challa that pushes him to become a ruler as well as provides backstory for his father’s death (which also leads to his own). Wakanda is a fictional African country with powerful weapons and resources. The Black Panther comics were one of the most popular African-American titles at Marvel Comics.
Why should I watch this film?
It’s an incredible story that was brought to life by one of the best Marvel directors. You also get to see Black Panther being the king he was destined to be before he became king. It is a love letter to Africa and African culture as well. The film will also help you understand how Africans were depicted in popular cinema at the time and its historical significance. In short, the film is a must watch. It is far more than just a superhero movie.

Besides the fact that she’s a strong, female character, Nakia is an awesome addition to the Black Panther universe.
