Sushant Singh Rajput starrer film Detective Byomkesh Bakshy opened to a slow start at the Box Office. The film received 30 to 35% occupancy rate. However, film was predicted to have a good start at the Box Office as it was a Good Friday, a holiday. The film managed to pull around Rs 4.50 Crore (45 millions) at the Box Office on its first day which is decent enough.

Film received a lot of compliments for its direction and performance by the actors. In the coming weekend, having a Hollywood blockbuster film Furious 7 as a competitor, things don’t really look that great for director Dibakar Banerjee‘s film. But we still expect the film to do a decent business at the Box Office.

American action drama is released in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. The English and Hindi version itself earned around Rs 11 Crore (110 millions) at the Box Office on its first day.

The film happens to be late Paul Walker’s last film.
