It was a bad weekend for all the films releasing this Friday. All the three films released had to struggle on this weekend, all thanks to the competition it posed from the previous week’s film – Chhichhore and Dream Girl. Let’s talk about the Sanjay Dutt starrer film – Prassthanam, which boast some of of the best star cast having Ali Fazal, Jackie Shroff, Chunky Panday, Amyra Dastur and Manisha Koirala to name a few. The film had a decent buzz in the media, yet it failed to call the cine-goers.
The trade pundits while commenting on the low collection had something strange to say. They feel the extended competition by the earlier films named above remains the key culprit at the box office. Hence all the films released this Friday had to struggle a lot. As per reports, the film on day one only scored 75 lakhs, while on Saturday it gained 1 Crore. Similarly, on Sunday, the film failed to impress and gain a decent collection as it restricted only to 2.25 Crores.
As per reports, the 1st-weekend box office collection went to score only 4 Crores, which is really low for a film of Sanjay Dut. The film happens to be a remake of the 2010 hit Telugu movie with the same title. The film happens to be a political thriller and had many things to impress that helped it gain good reviews by most of the critics. All thanks to the racy and heavy dialogues that simply turned out the things. The film Prassthanam marks the debut for the actor Sanjay Dutt’s wife Maanayata Dutt in the venture of production.
