Akshay Kumar’s Mission Raniganj Opens To Dull Response, Collects ₹2.8 Crore On Day 1
Akshay Kumar’s latest film, Mission Raniganj, received a dull response from the audience on its opening day, collecting ₹2.8 crore net. The film is based on the true story of Jaswant Singh Gill, a mining engineer who led the successful rescue of 65 miners trapped in a coal mine in Raniganj, West Bengal in 1989.
Mission Raniganj is Akshay Kumar’s second collaboration with director Tinu Suresh Desai, after the successful film Rustom. However, despite the star power of Akshay Kumar and the intriguing premise, the film failed to impress the audience on its opening day.
There are a few possible reasons for the film’s poor performance at the box office. First, the film was released during the festive season, when there was a lot of competition from other big-budget films. Second, the film received mixed reviews from critics, with some praising Akshay Kumar’s performance but criticizing the film’s slow pace and predictable screenplay. Finally, the film’s subject matter, which is a rescue mission set in a coal mine, may not have appealed to a wide enough audience.
Despite the film’s poor opening day performance, there is still a chance that it could pick up steam over the weekend. However, the film will need to show significant improvement in its box office collections in the coming days if it wants to be successful.
The poor performance of Mission Raniganj at the box office is a sign that the audience is no longer willing to accept mediocre films, even if they star big names like Akshay Kumar. The film’s failure also highlights the importance of critical acclaim, as films with good reviews are more likely to attract audiences.
It will be interesting to see how Mission Raniganj performs in the coming days. If the film fails to pick up steam, it will be a major setback for Akshay Kumar, who has had a mixed bag of results at the box office in recent years.
