Actor Akshay Kumar‘s family drama Raksha Bandhan is not showing any signs of improvement at the box office. On the sixth day of the film’s launch, director Aanand L Rai‘s film couldn’t even crack the Rs 2 crore mark. The detrimental buzz across the movie has impacted its field workplace efficiency, despite the fact that it was launched on a vacation.
Based on Bollywood Hungama, 60 p.c of the movie’s exhibits had been diminished on Tuesday, and it has solely managed to earn a complete of roughly Rs 1.35 to Rs 1.75 crore on the field workplace. The movie will in all probability publish lifetime collections of Rs 45 crore, that are unhealthy sufficient to make it one of many greatest crashes on the field workplace within the final 10 years.
The film had a sluggish begin, incomes Rs 8.20 cr on day one, Rs 6.40 cr on Friday, Rs 6.51 cr on Saturday, and Rs 7.05 crore on Sunday. The collections didn’t enhance on Monday as nicely, with the field workplace closing at Rs 6.3 crore. Raksha Bandhan is the third flop on the field workplace this yr for Akshay, who has already struggled with the poor performances of his earlier releases, Bachchhan Paandey and Samrat Prithviraj.
The movie’s poor efficiency hasn’t benefitted its field workplace rival Laal Singh Chaddha. The Aamir Khan-starrer can also be struggling, and is now anticipated to shut its run with lower than Rs 60 crore.
Raksha Bandhan acquired blended evaluations from critics. Indian Categorical’s Shubhra Gupta, in her evaluate of the movie, wrote, “I’m not sure what made me more uncomfortable — the mothballed plot detailing, the contrivances, the high-pitched melodrama which used to be part and parcel of movies we thought we had deep-sixed decades back; or the conviction that low-rent family dramas, with their uneasy mix of humour and crassness, hugely popular at one time, is the way out for a beleaguered Bollywood.”
