The film Rangoon though took long to be made for the silver screen with lots of hard work and diligence the film failed to impress upon the box office. After being in the making for a year or so since the principle shooting of the film began, the film Rangoon has seen a unmemorable one week run at the Box Office. The film didn’t open well, didn’t grow and then didn’t hold on in these eventful seven days when nothing went in its favor.
There were no external elements that impacted it though. There was no competition from past, present or future, there were no cricket matches, there was no political event holding center-stage, and not even there was no threat of demonetization either. Still, the film didn’t find audience and that was primarily due to the content by director Vishal Bhardwaj that went skewed. As per reports, the first week box office collection for Rangoon is just 22 crore, which is exactly similar to the Anurag Kashyap ambitious project Bombay Velvet and a bit better Fitoor [18 crore]. That pretty much summarizes how Rangoon has been rejected big time.
The film is seen somewhere competing with the lifetime collection of Saif Ali Khan’s other disaster Happy Ending [22 crore]. Besides, this is also amongst one of biggest disaster of Shahid Kapoorapart from his earlier movie Teri Meri Kahani that had lifetime collections of 25.75 crore. And for Kangana Ranaut it is better than her earlier big disaster though in the form of Revolver Rani [11 crore]. So the story at the box office for Rangoon had a bitter thing to tell when it comes to its business.
