Things are not looking good for Aditya Roy Kapur and Mrunal Thakur starrer thriller ‘Gumraah’. The film, which hit the theatres on Friday, only managed to earn Rs. 1.10 crores at the box office as per trade analyst Taran Adarsh.

Taran Adarsh described the film’s opening day collection as “lackluster.” Taran Adarsh wrote in his tweet: #Gumraah puts up a lacklustre total on Day 1, despite holiday [#GoodFriday]… Fri ₹ 1.10 cr. #India biz. Needs a miraculous turnaround on Day 2 and 3 to salvage the show”.

This opening is even lower than the opening  of Akshay Kumar, Emraan Hashmi starrer ‘Selfiee’ which had earned at least Rs. 2.55 crores on its first day of release.  Positive response to the film’s trailer and Aditya Roy Kapur’s last series “The Night Manager” receiving positive reviews from critics and strong response from the audience, had already raised fans expectations from the film. But looking at such an underwhelming response on the first day itself, one can make a guess that the film has failed to meet the audience’s expectations.

Gumraah is the fourth big Hindi remake of a south Indian film this year after Kartik Aaryan’s Shehzada (which was a remake of Telugu film ‘Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo), Selfiee starring Akshay Kumar and Emraan Hashmi (it was a remake of Malayalam movie ‘Driving Licence’) and Ajay Devgn’s ‘Bholaa'(which is a remake of Tamil film ‘Kaithi).

All four films have severely underperformed at the box office and no doubt ‘Gumraah’ is going to meet the same fate.  Directed by Vardhan Ketkar, Gumraah is a remake of Tamil film ‘Thadam’ (2019) starring Arun Vijay in the lead. The film revolves around the investigation of a man’s murder, where police find two probable suspects, who look alike but do not know each other.
