On Sunday, Laal Singh Chaddha’s collection decreased from Rs. 10 crores to Rs. 7.87 crores on Monday, and Raksha Bandhan dropped from Rs. 7.05 crores to Rs. 6.31 crores. It is highly concerning that on the biggest national holiday that was arriving at the close of the extended five day weekend, both films garnered some of their weakest numbers in this time span. Laal Singh Chaddha’s lowest collection was Rs. 7.26 crores on Friday, which then marginally improved to Rs. 7.87 crores on Monday. Raksha Bandhan experienced the lowest number of Rs. 6.40 crores on Friday and then it dropped even lower to Rs. 7.05 crores on Monday. It is evidently clear that the collections are set to go southwards starting from Tuesday, as the weekdays start rolling in.
The drop has come in the multiplexes, as the talk is outright negative, and the film exhausted its audience through the four-day run. The mass belts too had nothing good to say the least through the extended weekend, but on a holiday too, have failed to show the sort of jump that was expected. It’s a theatrical disaster, and the journey now is to see if it can somehow manage to enter the Rs. 50 crore club at the box office.
