The film is getting mixed response. While ‘Brahmastra’ is being praised for the VFX of the film, the film is also being criticized for the script and editing.
According to a Hindustan Times report, trade analysts say that the Hindi version of ‘Brahmastra’ has earned Rs 110 crore in the first weekend. Analyst sources claim that the Hindi version of the film did a business of Rs 41-42 crore on Sunday and Rs 45 crore in all these languages combined. At the same time, if we talk about the collection of three 3 days in all languages, then the film has earned 120 crores.
However, some celebrities like Kangana Ranaut and industry insiders have claimed that the makers of the film have manipulated the box office figures of ‘Brahmastra’. Despite being released on a non-holiday, ‘Brahmastra’ made a box office collection of 35-36 crores on the opening day. ‘Brahmastra’ has reportedly surpassed Ranbir Kapoor’s biggest opening day collection ‘Sanju’.
‘Sanju’, released in the year 2018, had a collection of Rs 34.75 crore on the first day. According to the makers, ‘Brahmastra’ earned Rs 160 crore worldwide in its first two days. Earlier, it was reported that with many shows being housefull, theaters at many places are also running early morning and late night shows to cater to the crowd of the audience.
Recently, Alia Bhatt and Ayaan shared a post on Instagram thanking the viewers of the film. Ayan wrote in the post, “Gratitude, enthusiasm, hope! Many thanks to everyone who goes to the theaters to experience Brahmastra, keeping our film culture alive and dynamic. Looking forward to the next few days.”
