Karan Johar’s Brahmastra will sweat in theaters, look at first day earnings


Karan Johar’s Dharma Production’s ‘Brahmastra’ movie may turn out to be another big loss after Liger. Released in more than 8,000 theaters around the world, the film’s first day earnings are very low by the scale. According to Bollywood Hungama, Brahmastra has earned Rs 37 crore (including all languages) at the domestic box office. In this, the contribution of Hindi counts more. In the South, the first non-Telugu collection day exceeded expectations. Even with Jr NTR and Rajamouli and crew, the gains in the Telugu circuit are not very significant, but it can be called better in terms of a Hindi industry film. Brahmastra has earned around 5 million rupees in Telangana and Andhra.

Brahmastra is made on a budget of over Rs 400 million. It will be said that the profits are insufficient compared to the budget. On the second day too, there is a slight growth in the film business. For the second day, ie Saturday, an advance reservation of about 20 million rupees has been made. An advance reservation of just over Rs 18 million was made for the first day. It is believed in the first estimates that the second day’s collection may also remain between 37 to 42 million rupees or more. The film is sure to easily do 100 crore business at the weekend. The problem for the producers is that despite earning over Rs 100 crore, the film seems weak in many ways from a commercial point of view. Another thing is that for Brahmastra, Karan Johar has made ‘Khulla Khel Farukkhabadi’ using his influence on the Hindi belt.

Brahmastra is not seen or taking advantage of empty box office

There was tremendous opposition to Brahmastra before its release. All of Bollywood was seen standing up for Karan Johar’s film. Bollywood, which is dealing with a clash every Friday, has left the box office highway wide open for ‘Brahmastra’. For the next two weeks, no big movies will be released in theaters. The films that will also be released are very low budget. All movies are on OTT. But this is no less problematic for Karan Johar either. The content that comes in OTT is full of variety. Many low budget movies also have the ability to keep the audience engaged.

As far as Brahmastra’s track record is concerned, the movie has achieved plenty of benchmarks even after failing to earn a decent amount on day one. This movie has become the highest opening movie after Covid. Previously, this record was held by Akshay Kumar’s Suryavanshi, who arrived last year’s bank holiday weekend. Suryavanshi earned Rs 26.29 crore on the first day. This film was the highest opening film of Ranbir’s career.

Making a profit from movie theaters is far from Brahmastra, see the example of thugs

Bad word of mouth in favor of Brahmastra can turn viewers into OTT. Anyway, your first week is very important for any new release. If Aamir Khan’s ‘Thugs of Hindostan’, made on a budget of Rs 300 crore, can fail after earning Rs 140 crore in the first week, then it is not difficult to understand what the commercial status of Brahmastra will be even after winning. 150 million rupees. In the first week. In general, it is clearly visible that it is almost impossible to extract the cost of Brahmastra from the theaters. Yes, it is definitely possible for producers to recoup the cost by selling theatrical, OTT, music and TV rights. But now profiting from Brahmastra is a long way off.

Brahmastra is directed by Ayan Mukerji. Ranbir Kapoor is paired with Alia Bhatt in the film. In addition to the two stars, Amitabh Bachchan, Dimple Kapadia, Nagarjuna, and Mouni Roy have major roles. Shahrukh Khan also made a cameo appearance. Shahrukh’s cameo remains a topic of discussion among fans of him.
