Akshay Kumar’s “Mission Raniganj” Makes a Disastrous Start at the Indian Box Office

The highly anticipated Akshay Kumar starrer, “Mission Raniganj: The Great Bharat Rescue,” directed by Tinu Suresh Desai and featuring an ensemble cast including Parineeti Chopra, Kumud Mishra, Ravi Kishan, and others, has taken a shockingly low start at the Indian box office on its opening day.

Despite garnering praise for its craftsmanship, “Mission Raniganj” failed to translate critical acclaim into substantial box office numbers. The film managed to collect a mere Rs 2.75 – 3 crores nett on its first day of release, leaving both fans and makers disappointed. These numbers closely mirror the opening day figures of Akshay Kumar’s previous full-fledged film, “Selfiee.”

The film’s survival drama narrative, which is receiving accolades for its execution, has not translated into the expected box office success. The dire opening figures pose a significant challenge for the movie’s future prospects.

With such meager numbers on the opening day, “Mission Raniganj” faces an uphill battle at the Indian box office. While customary growth over the weekend is expected, it remains uncertain whether this growth will be sufficient to provide the film with the momentum it desperately needs. The film’s ability to surpass its Friday numbers on Monday could potentially be a turning point for its box office trajectory.

Despite the bleak start, “Mission Raniganj” currently holds the distinction of being the most preferred Indian movie choice for audiences in India this weekend, largely due to the absence of competition from new releases.

The day-wise nett box office collections of “Mission Raniganj” are as follows:

  • Day 1: Rs 2.85 crores

The coming weeks will reveal whether “Mission Raniganj” can overcome its rocky start and gain momentum on National Cinema Day next weekend. However, the film faces a challenging landscape, as other recent releases like “Thank You For Coming” and “Dono” struggle to find success in theaters.

Overall, this Friday has marked one of the dullest days for the Indian film industry this year, with “Mission Raniganj” facing an uphill battle to prove its worth in the competitive world of Indian cinema.
