Year’s biggest Hindi film Kalank is facing rejection from the audience, which can be seen easily in its falling box office numbers. After a biggest opening of the year, it showed an unexpected downtrend over the 5-days extended holiday weekend due to a negative word of mouth.
Directed by Abhishek Varman, Kalank was released with humongous hype but got failed to live up to the expectations. It has received mixed reviews from the critics as well as the audience due to its weak story-line.
Madhuri Dixit, Sonakshi Sinha, Alia Bhatt, Sanjay Dutt, Varun Dhawan & Aditya Roy Kapur starrer took an excellent start on Wednesday and registered the biggest opening of the year in Bollywood with 21.60 crores. Then on Thursday, it witnessed a healthy drop in footfalls and minted the amount of 11.45 crores.
With a further decline, Kalank bagged the amount of 11.60 crores on Friday, 9.75 crores of Saturday & 11.63 crores on Sunday. After the weekend, the total collection of the film was recorded at 66.03 crores across 4000 screens at the domestic box office.
Now Dharma Movies’ production has entered on weekdays and faced an abrupt drop in footfalls in theaters due to normal working days. On Monday, it managed to collect the amount of 3.75 crores and raised 5 days total collection to 69.78 crores.
There are four more days for the film to earn moolah without any competition as Avengers: Endgame arrives on Friday and that would fetch quite some audience attention.
