Ram Gopal Varma has yet another failure, as ‘The Attacks Of 26/11’ was a non-starter at the box office on Friday. The opening was in the 10-15% range at multiplexes and it looked like the film would finish it’s first day with less than Rs 1 crore.
The Attacks Of 26/11 did pick up slightly for the evening/night shows, but Day 1 business of Rs 1.5 crore is dismal.
At few multiplexes the occupancy was so bad that quite a few shows had to be cancelled. Today (Saturday), there are reports that the number of shows at multiplexes have already been reduced.
The response from the critics for ‘The Attacks Of 26/11’ has been better than most Ram Gopal Varma films in the last 4 or 5 years. But that hasn’t translated into good box office collections.
