Sanjay Leela Bhansali‘s gun flaunting romantic drama Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram Leela starring Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh has taken a resounding opening at the Box Office.
Released on Friday – November 15, 2013 to protests and disruptions in some parts of the country (due to its name which has apparently irked few Hindi groups) Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram Leela did a good business of about Rs 151 million (Rs 15.10 crore) nett on its first day.
The film did better business in multiplexes as compared to single screens. And as expected the highest response for Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram Leela came from the state it has derived its flavour from – Gujarat.
Some cinemas and shows were called off due to the protests – this has hit the opening business of Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram Leela by a notable amount.
The reviews for the film are mixed, the controversy is simmering. The weekend will decide how Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram Leela will fare further.
ADVANCE BOX OFFICE: Ram Leela Advance Booking Through The Roof!
With the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus, Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram Leela merely a day away, the Box Office buzz has understandably been heating up.
Touted as one of the biggest, most eagerly awaited films this year, it is no surprise that the advance expectancy for the Ranveer Singh – Deepika Padukone starrer is at an all-time high…
Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram Leela has all the makings of an anticipated potboiler. A stellar star cast, an ace director (returning to celluloid after a hiatus of three long years) and catchy promos. Add to this are the supposed “controversies” surrounding the film (are the lead stars actually dating? the alleged offence taken by certain sections of right-wing Hindus, and the Gujarati communities on whom the film is based) and all the pre-release hype is justified.
The ticketing windows have seen some action, in terms of advance bookings. A leading single screen theatre in Bangalore affirmed. (FULL REPORT HERE)
