Raksha Bandhan collected almost 34 crore nett over its extended five day weekend, just as Laal Singh Chaddha did.
This film has also faced rejection in Hindi circuits, even though some places have managed okay collections.
However, these will come down now that the weekend and holiday period is over.The film essentially had no chance on Saturday as it did not improve and from there it was a difficult struggle.
The collections on Monday needed to be far higher than the opening day, but they were not only lower than day one, but also lower than Sunday.
It remains to be seen if the film can get over the 50 crore nett mark in the long run, but it will no doubt have a big drop on Tuesday.If it gets there, it hasn’t achieved much.
The film industry has had a sad weekend, but as has been mentioned in these reports, after each so-called shocker there are more to come. There may still be a few more left until the content changes in accordance to the mass and youth of the day.
Both Laal Singh Chaddha and Raksha Bandhan had nothing for that male mass and youth segment which forms bulk of the cinema going audience today and hence the collections.
