The first few lines of this article are sarcastic, so don’t take it to heart. Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt star in ‘Brahmastra’, which has been out for 14 days at the box office, yet has not weakened. The film ‘Brahmastra’ has made a grand gross of Rs 4.02 crore on the 13th, ie the second Wednesday. After which Karan Johar has declared it a box office hit. If we look at the earnings figures for the 13th, the movie ‘Brahmastra’ has far surpassed the 1931 film Alam Ara in terms of earnings.
Until now some similar news about ‘Brahmastra’ were being seen. Despite the passage of about 13 days, ignoring the film’s falling earnings, it continued to be declared a box office success. But, the earnings figures for the 13th said that the ‘Brahmastra’ movie has now moved into the ‘flop’ category. The huge budget with which Karan Johar made ‘Brahmastra’. Even 10 or 11 years of hard work and research on the film by filmmaker Ayan Mukerji could not save it.
Featuring ‘Brahmastra’ trailer release, Shah Rukh Khan’s cameo in the film, real-life couple Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt’s real-life romance, Amitabh Bachchan of the century, Pan India launch with stars of the South, etc. An atmosphere was created around it. A lot has been written about the movie ‘Brahmastra’, from early booking to everything possible. Long story short, so many keyboards were broken to positively write about the movie. But, on the first day of release on 9th September, ‘Brahmastra’ earnings of Rs 36.42 crore indicated that what will be the end of this film?
However, despite this, many film critics were adamant that ‘Brahmastra’ would do well at the box office in the coming days. Because it’s getting good reviews. And, the film’s box office will improve through word of mouth from the audience. His boycott campaign will have no effect on the film. Because good movies are not affected by these types of ‘fake’ campaigns. Well, after the day 13 collection of the movie ‘Brahmastra’ came out, the only thing that can be said to the fans of Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt is to at least now assume that Brahmastra has ‘failed’.
The Brahmastra collection is continuously falling and there is no chance to improve it.

At the time of the release of the movie ‘Brahmastra’, it was claimed that it was released on more than 9000 screens worldwide. Brahmastra opened on more than 5,000 screens in India alone. The movie ‘Brahmastra’ made a business of Rs 36.42 crore on the first day. The collection of the film improved on the second day and this figure reached 42.41 million rupees. The Brahmastra movie earned 45.66 crores on the third day. Adding the worldwide earnings figures with these earnings figures, the film was said to have done a business of around Rs 226.75 crore in three days. And, this movie is sure to be a box office hit.
But, by the fourth day, there was about a 64 percent decline in the movie’s earnings. And its collection was reduced to only 16.5 million rupees. And, even the next weekend, the takings couldn’t be more than the earnings of the fourth day. At the same time, now the collection of ‘Brahmastra’ on the 13th has stood at only Rs 4.02 crore. That will continue to fall in the coming days. The overseas collection of the Brahmastra film is almost over. Because, in 13 days, Brahmastra has earned only Rs 97.65 crore from abroad. Now Brahmastra cannot be compared to Aamir Khan’s movie ‘Dangal’, which will break all earnings records in China.
Well, according to the website sacnilk.com, which gives official information about the box office movie collection, the movie Brahmastra has earned Rs 361.5 crore worldwide so far. In which around Rs 36 crores have been earned from other Indian languages. Therefore, your earnings in other Indian languages should be considered terminated.

To sell in OTT it is necessary to do well at the box office.
If you explore the data available on sacnilk.com, you find that the movie starring Yash KGF 2, released this year with a budget of 100 crores, made a worldwide business of Rs 1207 crores. Which has been called the blockbuster of all time. At the same time, the RRR film made with a budget of Rs 550 crore also made a business of Rs 1111.7 crore. This movie was a box office hit. The film The Kashmir Files, made on a budget of Rs 20 crore, also earned Rs 341 crore worldwide. And, the box office hit of all time was declared. But, the movie Brahmastra, made with a budget of Rs 410 crore, could only earn Rs 361.5 crore. The film can add another Rs 10-15 crore to its earnings on National Film Day next Friday through tickets available for Rs 75. And, even after that, if the screens are found, this profit can reach Rs. 50 million rupees.
But, even with this profit, Brahmastra film will only be able to withdraw its investment, that is, the amount invested in the making of Karan Johar’s film. And, after this happens, the film cannot be called at least a box office success. Yes, the creators of the Brahmastra movie will have OTT expectations. But how much will the OTT platform buy the rights to a big-budget movie like Brahmastra for? Because a plan was made to sell Aamir Khan’s Lal Singh Chaddha movie ‘Flop’ on OTT for Rs 150 crore. But, in a report by Bollywood Hungama, it has been said that the OTT platform has dealt him for Rs 90 crore. If viewed on this basis, Karan Johar can consider his film as the best film in the world. But, the OTT platforms will give them deals according to the box office performance of the movie. Which will go up to ‘200 crores’ a lot.
It is important to mention here that I have given the figure of Rs 200 crore here very generously. Whereas it is possible that Brahmastra will get a lesser deal than this from the OTT platform. Because, it has been able to get only its cost at the box office. Well, even with this figure, the film ‘Brahmastra’ will not be considered a box office hit at least. Rather, it will only give Karan Johar a small return on investment from him.
After 14 days there will be no ‘Brahmastra’ screens
Famous film director R Balki’s crime thriller film ‘Chup: Revenge of the Artist’ will open at the box office next Friday, September 23. Not much atmosphere is being created about this film by Sunny Deol and Dulquer Salmaan. Because there is a different audience than the one that watches suspense and crime movies. But, the truth is that with its premiere, the number of screens that the film ‘Brahmastra’ is getting will be less. Which is already down from 5000+ to 619 by the 13th. By the way, for Brahmastra, not only ‘Chup: The Artist’s Revenge’, 6 South Cinema movies will also become a headache.
By the way, these movies may not pose any threat to ‘Brahmastra’. But, this week, the world’s greatest visual effects-heavy movie, Avatar, will also be released in theaters once again. People who have seen the movie Avatar. They will definitely take their kids to show this movie, you can guarantee it. And, one of the reasons for this relaunch is the release of James Cameron’s Avatar sequel ‘Avatar: The Way of Water’ in December this year. Which will create an atmosphere for the sequel. In simple words, how long Brahmastra will last on more than 600 screens, is not certain. And, the movie show is also canceled when less audience arrives. Thus, you will be able to add just a few crores to your earnings.
