Priyanka Chopra’s Jai Gangaajal released on March 04, 2016. The film did not open well at the box office.
The film had opened at a poor scale. On it’s first day, the film collected Rs 4.45 crore net (44.5 million). The film showed limited growth on Saturday. On it’s second day, Jai Gangaajal collected Rs 5 crore net (Rs 50 million). The total collection for 2 days is Rs 9.45 crore net approx (Rs 94 million)
The film, which lacked with promotions due to Priyanka Chopra’s absence, worked better in some of the cities of UP, Bihar and Central India. The film showed its better magic in Delhi/ UP with collection of Rs 1 crore nett approx (10 million). But over all the film opened up with poor performance.
The film managed to fare better at the single screens than at the multiplexes. There is hardly any massive hope for the political centric movie ‘Jai Gangaajal’ except for positive word of mouth publicity and strong content.
The film ‘Jai Gangaajal’ is evidently not a family entertainer. Being a Prakash Jha film, the movie is presumed to be for young adults. With all the films being promoted at a large scale, ‘Jai Gangaajal’ surely fell short of recall value. The movie which stars Priyanka Chopra in the main lead does not even have songs which are on the chart busters which further deteriorated its presence in the minds of the audience.
Nevertheless, Priyanka’s popularity might be able to pull off some crowd at the metro cities. The film Jai Gangaajal needs to be around the Rs 20 crore net mark for the weekend, but it looks difficult. The weekend collection of the film will however, be a crucial game decider for its success or failure.
