A very costly epic saga film ‘Panipat’ released and it had very low pre release buzz. Arjun Kapoor is coming out of two disaster films and Ashutosh after one disaster.
Film is over 90 cr budget and has length in excess of 2 hours 50 minutes. On top of that it has clash with a light hearted comedy film set in small town which is flavour of the season. Film opened with disaster numbers of 8-10% opening which grew marginally through the day.
Film collected 4.12 cr nett on day one which is washout number for such a hugely mounted film. Film grew but marginally on day two and collected 5.78 cr nett which is low considering poor day one. Film added 7.78 cr nett on Sunday which was good growth but poor opening day ha skilled it’s prospects already.
Film had 3 day total of 17.68 cr nett. Film collected 5.43 cr ($764 k) in overseas market over weekend which is also low.
As expected, film dropped further on Monday and collected 2.59 cr nett. Film has 4 day total of 20.27 cr nett. Now it’s curtains for the film as it will struggle to cross 27 cr in week one and 32 cr lifetime.
Terrible flop, lost battle!
