Ranbir Kapoor Starrer Shamshera had a lot many things going for it – big banner YRF behind it, Ranbir making a comeback after 4 years, huge 4300 screens release all over India and no major competition from any other film. But sadly result turned out to be disastrous. The film opened to mixed reviews and the film never grew after a poor Friday morning. It collected 10.25 cr nett on Friday and that was below par. It looked worse because many sections of media created hype of 15-18 cr nett opening day.
As expected, the film remained flat on day two and collected paltry sun of 10.50 cr nett. Even yesterday, the film was on similar levels and collected only 11 cr nett with slim growths in mass centres. The film collected 31.75 cr nett only over the weekend which is a poor total for a film of this release size and hype.
Now Monday needed to have a solid hold and that looks impossible. The film needed to drop only by 10-20% for some sort of lifetime number. But film dropped by 65%-70% on Monday. Monday threat loomed large over the film and that is what unfolded.
The film collected poor 3.25 cr nett on Monday which means curtain for the film. It will drop further form here onwards.
The film has total of 35 cr nett plus in 4 days and further drop means that film will not collect more than 40-41 cr nett in 1st week and lifetime number will be under 46-47 cr nett. Epic disaster!
