Akshay Kumar starrer Raksha Bandhan was never to score in multiplexes as the subject seems too dated and treatment felt cliche. On top of that clash with Aamir Khan starrer Laal Singh Chaddha made it split its earnings by at least 25%.
The film didn’t open well and then it failed to grow on day one. The film collected a poor 8.20 cr nett on day one which was the actor’s lowest opener of the year behind Bachchan Pandey and Samrat Prithviraj. The film received mixed reviews and urban markets were always supposed to be repulsive for this so growth didn’t happen despite a poor day one.
The film collected 6.40 cr nett on day two which was a drop of 23%. The film was expected to jump big today as the holiday effect has kicked in but the film failed to do so. The film collected less than 21 cr nett plus over 3 day weekend.
The film again remained flat on Sunday and didn’t spring any surprise. The film managed below par 7.05 cr nett. Film again dropped on Monday and Tuesday which is shocking, it collected 6.31 and 1.60 cr nett. Even on Wednesday and Thursday, the film could not maintain its stability and collected only 1.35 cr and 1.20 cr nett. Film collected poor 37 cr nett over week one which was shocking.
The film started its second week on a very low note by collecting only 1 cr at the box office on Friday,1.25 cr nett on Saturday and poor 1.80 cr nett on Sunday. Film collected 4 cr nett plus over 2nd weekend.
Film has 11 – day total of 41 cr nett plus which is terrible. Film is struggling to cross 45 cr nett lifetime which is unheard of for such a big film.
Rakshabandhan was very poor in overseas market and will find it tough for decent lifetime total over there.
