Mumbai, Oct 29 (Calcutta Tube / IBNS) While all movie buffs were anticipating the release of SRK’s Ra.One & been dying to know the shape of its fate, there are mixed views about how the movie has actually faired.
Released on 26th October, worldwide, on the auspicious day of Diwali celebrations, we barely expected unbeatable numbers due to the generic festive mood.
However, Shah Rukh Khan’s Ra.One did surprise the people when the official numbers came out. So, the film grossed Rs. 26.5 crores with a net of Rs. 18.5 crores on Wednesday 26th October making it the highest ever Diwali day collection in the history of Indian cinema especially in the last 14 years.
The second day collections on Thursday 27th October were even more impressive with the film raking in Rs. 36 crores gross with a net of Rs. 25.10 crores net making it the highest collection ever for a single day for an Indian film.
What is to be seen is whether this is just another number game or this movie has managed to raise the bar for Indian Cinema with its vfx, marketing & a new story to tell. For now, looks like the crab mentality of Indian cinema is about to breakfree.
