After the much hyped film of Priyanka Chopra called Jai Gangaajal finally hit the theatres it failed to collect enough moolah as the filmmaker Prakash Jha was eyeing from it. Despite having a decent pre-release buzz in the media, the film suffered a lot in term of getting a low collection at the end of the day. This kept on moving with the same pace without much impact. Day wasn’t that great, though it escalated in the coming two days in its first weekend, yet the amount of collection you got at the end of the first weekend wasn’t that impressive.
Many feel that the film didn’t deliver the things that it promised, may be because Prakash Jha its producer and director who was seen making his debut in the film was seen overshadowing the main lead role of the lady copy played by Priyanka Chopra whom he tried to bank initially to make it glamorous. It seemed that the director simply tried to use PeeCee to add the glam element of the actress. As per reports, the first weekend box office report for Jai Gangaajal tolled to around 18.50 crore, which was certainly more than the Tusshar Kapoor and Sunny Leone starrer adult comedy Mastizaade.
Now, talking about the other film Zubaan, which was brought forth by the Masaan director, the film was seen falling flat on the ground. Though the film managed to get a decent ratings and reviews from most of the critics in terms of performance and story but it failed to promote in the media well and yes even the star value for the film was really low. All these factors failed to garner much response for Zubaan in a big way. As per reports, the first weekend box office collection not even exceeded the amount of 2 crores.
