After a five-year wait, the fantasy action movie Brahmastra with Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt in the lead was finally released in theatres today.
The movie is anticipated to draw crowds to theatres and revive the box office, which was decimated by earlier Bollywood movies.
Bollywood films that were released back-to-back, such as Laal Singh Chaddha, Raksha Bandhan, Liger, and Dhaakad, ended up being massive box office failures.
Many industry insiders predicted that Ayan Mukherji’s movie will perform well at the box office.
The most recent report, however, presents a different picture.
According to a Business Insider article, Brahmastra is suing PVR and Inox investors alongside itself.
The early reviews that have circulated online appear to be having an impact on the box office performance of the movies.
According to reports, the movie’s commercial prospects are suffering because the theatre chains are suffering significant losses.
According to the study, the two theatre chains in India, PVR and Inox, have collectively lost more than 800 crores in market worth today.
This occurs at a time when the Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt film received mixed reviews upon its debut.
While some critics and viewers praised the movie for its visual effects, others said it had let them down.
The dreams of a recovery for the Hindi film industry, according to experts, could be dashed if Brahmastra is deemed a failure at the box office, while South films like RRR, Pushpa: The Rise, KGF Chapter 2, and Karthikeya 2 have proven to be massive blockbusters that bring in large sums of money.
But only time will tell how the Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor movie does at the box office. Some of the biggest names in the entertainment world appear in the film, which has a budget of Rs 410 crore. Amitabh Bachchan, Tollywood star Nagarjuna are cast in the film and even Shah Rukh Khan make brief appearances.
