Ram Setu Box Office Collection Day 1: Akshay Kumar Starrer Off To A Good Start

New Delhi: Akshay Kumar starrer ‘Ram Setu’ has opened with decent earnings and has collected around Rs 15.25 crore according to early estimates. 

Film distributor and trade analyst Raj Bansal tweeted the box office numbers. He wrote, “On Day1 Tuesday (Diwali Holiday) @akshaykumar #RamSetu collects Appox. ₹15.25Cr. NBOC India (sic).” 

‘Ram Setu’ has reportedly performed well in mass pockets like Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh and Bihar, CI. According to Boxoffice India, movie has earned over Rs 1 crore from the Rajasthan circuit while in Mumbai the film is expected to cross Rs 5 crore. 

With these numbers, the Abhishek Sharma directorial has got the second biggest opening of the year, after ‘Brahmastra’. 

The opening numbers are a much-needed relief for Akshay Kumar as his last three outings ‘Bachchhan Pandey’, ‘Raksha Bandhan’ and ‘Samrat Prithviraj’ didn’t do any magic at the box office. 

The film is about an atheist archaeologist turned believer, who must race against time to prove the existence of the legendary Ram Setu before evil forces destroy the pillar of India’s heritage. 

‘Ram Setu’ Review

The film, also starring Jacqueline Fernandez, Nushrratt Bharuccha, Satya Dev, has got mixed reviews from the critics. ABP Live’s review of the film states, “best feature which is undone and continually bombarded with justifications on religion, faith, cultural history etc etc.” 

“’Ram Setu’ uses an interesting mix of camera movements like overlapping shots to interlace narratives, introduce key villain, a breezy interval card which is also the title card of the film and beautiful overhead shots of the Sri Lankan landscape which look no less than a Nat Geo trailer ( in the second half).

This helps in making the narrative, especially the first 30 minutes of the film, really engaging. Flat and predictable screenplay is lent depth with experiment in form. However, the cringe background score especially the ‘Jai Jai’ track every time someone Akshay’s character gets near Ram Setu is overused and manipulated to only reduce the intensity of faith/devotion.”
