Mumbai, June 25 (IANS) Anurag Kashyap’s directorial “Raman Raghav 2.0”, which released on Friday, had a slow start at the box office by collecting Rs 1.20 crore on its opening day in India.
The Nawazuddin Siddiqui starrer is loosely inspired by notorious psychopath Raman Raghav who embarked on a murderous killing spree in Mumbai during the mid-1960s.
“Raman Raghav 2.0” collected Rs 1.20 crores on Friday. The film released in 770 screens across India, read a statement from the makers of the film.
Trade analyst Komal Nahata tweeted: “Opening of ‘Raman Raghav 2.0’ poor. Opening of other releases terrible. Going to be a bad weekend at box office.”
The movie released with six other films, including “Junooniyat” and Hollywood biggie “Independence Day: Resurgence”. Both these films have not earned favourable reviews, however the critics have lauded “Raman Raghav 2.0” for being a taut thriller with impactful performances by not just Nawazuddin, but also Vicky Kaushal.
Distributed by Reliance Entertainment, the film is produced by Phantom Films, co-owned by Kashyap, Vikas Bahl, Vikramaditya Motwane and Madhu Mantena.
