Anurag Kashayp is probably the happiest person in the world as both of his film “Udta Punjab” and “Raman Raghav 2.0” is flowing steady at the box office (though on the lower side).
“Udta Punjab” declined subsequently in its second weekend (probably by 90%) but since the controversial drama already minted money in its first week, the impact was less in the second weekend. Though second Friday was bad, “Udta Punjab” stabilized on Saturday and grew little bit on Sunday. On second Monday, “Udta Punjab” fell by 50% as compared to its second Friday which is reasonable. The Tuesday and Wednesday box office collection is pretty steady. The total collection of the drug drama is ( Fri 1.45 cr, Sat 2.20 cr, sun 2.45 cr, mon 80 lacs, Tues 75 lacs, Wed 71 lacs) Rs 56.91 crores (The budget is Rs 48 crores). On the other hand, overseas total for “Udta Punjab” is $2,037,573 [Rs 13.85 cr].
On the other hand, Anurag Kashyap’s second film “Raman Raghav 2.0” (which he directed as well) did not make much impact at the box office though the reviews were positive. The theme of the film is pretty dark and the “A” certificate limited the number of the audience. The good news is that the budget of “Raman Raghav 2.0” is pretty economical which comes around Rs 7 crores. The total collections is (Fri 1.10 cr, Sat 1.40 cr, Sun 1.48 cr, Mon 57 lacs, Tue 54 lacs, Wed 47 lacs) Total:Rs 5.56 crores.
The good news is that there are no new films hitting the theater this Friday which should pave the way for “Udta Punjab” and “Raman Raghav 2.0).
