R Rajkumar Box Office Opening

R RajkumarShahid Kapoor’s R.. Rajkumar (initially titled Rambo Rajkumar) has opened well at the domestic box office on Friday. The film took a 40-50% all-India opening in the morning. At mass centres in Central India, where Prabhu Deva films have a huge-following, occupancy was around 50-55%.

However, the problem for R.. Rajkumar lies in the reports that the film is carrying. While the response from single-screens varies from average to good, reports from multiplexes is mixed to negative.

Critics too haven’t given the film a thumbs up, with the film scoring just 36 on our review scale (Click to Read).

The success of R… Rajkumar is crucial for Shahid Kapoor, who hasn’t had a clean-hit since Vivaah and Jab We Met way back in 2007. Also, Sonakshi Sinha hasn’t had a hit this entire year with Lootera, Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Dobaara and last week’s release Bullett Raja all failing to recover costs.



  • Now this is good news,the opening is good…..Unlike his earlier release PPNH..
    Also it released on high no. of screens.

    Now single screens are hope to hold well throughout the weekend..

    Don’t know why most critics have thrashed it saying an overdose of masala films…

    Unless it gets crashed like himmatwala or besharam,it is all set to be a hit.

  • I had a high expectation from this one.I wish it had done some magic to shahid career.the guy is really talented but not wise enough to maintain stardom.

  • It will open to decent response due to its songs and promotions. Critics have given it thumbs down, while the response from the audience isn’t as good as expected either.

  • When media asked Karan Johar whether#Krrish3broke record of#YJHDhe refused to reply means hethinks tat#Krrish3has done less business.

  • R rajkumar is good film, adience like it, btw shahid have 3 hits vivha(blockbuster), jab we met(super hit) kameney(hit) and r rajkumar will be 4th one.

  • i just wish it picks up. shahid really need a hit now even more than sunny deol.
    hi is a good actor.critics never gives a good review.if we look at most of movies all ends with same ending.

  • What do you mean Shahid has not had a clean hit since Vivah in 2006? What were Jab We Met (2007) and kaminey (2010) then??

  • the fate is already decided……… it hasnt opened huge nd the content is also not gud… it cant sustain much nd can only recover the cost…. critics are thrashing the movie nd wom is nt very gud……….
    again badluck 4 shahid…

  • R…rajkumar is a very bad movie, don’t waste your money. People are hailing it as the worst movie of the year.

  • haha…so wat..nipun@ these fake collection isnt accepted yet…by everyone.every trade sec. has its own collections..

  • frankly speaking this is the only movie for a long time from which i have zero expectation, two main reasons are:
    1. main reason is Prabhu deva because this is fresh attempt by him, all three movies wanted,rowdy rathore and Ramaiyya Vastavaiya were remakes, and if any one seen original of these movies, these are all scene to scene remakes, totally copies, even location and fight sequence all were same, so a director who even not give any different touch of his movie earlier, how can one expect good movie by this man. we have seen remakes like Ghajini (climax and some scenes in middle changed), Don remake (climax and villian both changed in movie and stylishly shooted),Agneepath (completely changed screenplan and introduction of powerful character in for of Rauf lala), these re movies which were officialy remaked but director and creative team given something different in those movies from earlier one, So complete let down by Prabhu Deva.

    2. Shahid Kapoor, no doubt one of the talented young actor but completely chosen wrong character, these kind of Masala films are best suited for a man who has macho physique like Akshay ,Ajay & Salman and they also having rough and tough voice, shaahi completely lacks in that, i was laughingwhen many Shaahid fans who bashing Salman and Akshay for masala movie love Shaahid action in trailer, action done by Ajay,Akshay & Salman looking unbelievable to thembut don’t know how Shahid action looking better to them, Big surprise. I think shahid should learn from SRK that how to fit in these kinda movies as he did in CE, he was just a common man in the movie and been underdog throughout the film and shown realistic fight sequence in the end. Result he wins Deepika, movie wins audience heart and Collection were record breaking.

    3. Sonakshi Sinha, shown talent in Lootera but completely wasting her talent in same zoner movies again and again, i am irritating to see her in same kind of movies and even her next two Holiday & action Jackson also belong to same genre.

    so result is as expected as it, all critics bashed the movie and even some critics called Worst movie of the year.
    moral- Shahid should now do movies as a supporting role along with Big actors like Salman,Skr,Aamir or Akshay. like Saif ali khan did movie like HSSH with Salman, DCH with Aamir and KHNH with SRK, in all these three movies were successful and Saif acting was appreciated, Result in 2004 he give SOLO big Hit named “Hum Tum”. Same case with Abhishek Bachchan getting solo flops again and again now will get successful movies Named Bol Bachchan, D3 & HNY.
    Finally Best of luck to shahid for future.

  • @romance & Man Kaminey was a above average or semi hit movie not a clean hit, so indicine is right that Vivah & Jab we met were his last hits.

  • I agree with aks. Shahid should only do supporting acts for now. He is also a great dancer, maybe he should do movies with dance themes.

  • ha hah ha ..my prediction is right as usual ..now wait how my other prediction also comes true about dhoom3…
    rrr..rajkumar will peterout tomorrow..and this is how it should be.. well deserved flop

  • The opening collection shows that people like masala but r rajkumar is awful.Look even taran adarsh rated it low

  • He is extremely talented like Abhishek Bachchan, But their luck and the capacity to choosing the good script lags them down. They had shown their full of talent in movies like Yuva, Kaminey, Guru etc.

  • Shahid kapoor should think to join Television serial. He is no way nearer to Ranbir, Ranveer, Arjun and Varuna Dhawan. Jab We met was hit because of the content and Kareena Kapoor, where she bags a best actress award.

  • R Rajkumar title in good numerology…[had been suggested by Prasant numerology…].

    Release date had 63 defect [one earns bad names/subject of ridicule by others].

    Perfectly balanced 21 has its own potential….hmmmmm. Good collections in the beginning, then huge downfall in unexpected manner at some point sooner/;later….

  • Opening is good as it collected around 9 crs on friday. Today also it sustained on friday’s level with good report from single screen. So it won’t flop for sure. Only question is whether it can emerge a hit or not. Weekend will be around 30 crs minimum which can take first week total to around 45 crs. So 60+ crs lifetime is possible at the moment which can take it to above avg/semi hit status at the boxoffice.. Good luck to shahid.
