Emraan Hashmi, Kriti Kharbanda and Gaurav Arora’s Raaz Reboot may have been one of the most exciting films of the HIT Raaz franchise, but it failed to impress the audience. However, looks like the film has performed decently at the domestic box office. This is only coz of the Raaz franchise factor! Raaz Reboot started off on a great note as it collected Rs 6.30 crore on day 1. But it saw a dip on day 2, collecting only Rs 5.49 coz of the poor word of mouth publicity. Raaz Reboot again saw a growth on day 3 as it earned Rs 6.30 crore, ending with a weekend collection of Rs 18.09 crore. Emraan Hashmi’s film, however, failed to cross the crucial Monday test as it saw a drop in occupancy and collections. The movie just made Rs 2.61 on day 4, to take its total tally to Rs 20.70 crore.
As trade analyst Taran Adarsh revealed about Raaz Reboot‘s collection in his tweet, “#RaazReboot Fri 6.30 cr, Sat 5.49 cr, Sun 6.30 cr, Mon 2.61 cr. Total: Rs 20.70 cr. India biz.”
While this is an average collection on paper, Raaz Reboot has performed better than expected. Emraan Hashmi’s film was expected to collect Rs 15 crore over the weekend, but it collected about Rs 18.09 crore. As our trade expert – Akshaye Rathi (exhibitor and distributor) revealed to us earlier, “Raaz Reboot should make around Rs 5 crore on day one and about Rs 15 crore over the weekend.”
And even though Raaz Reboot saw a dip, it has still a week and another weekend too. So, Emraan Hashmi’s film will easily be profitable. Raaz Reboot has been made on a budget of Rs 26-27 crore, which the film will easily achieve. As Askaye revealed to us earlier, “I believe Raaz Reboot has a COP (cost of production) of not more than Rs 20 crore and including marketing it must be Rs 26-27 cr at best. Considering that, it is a fairly decent number.”
However, Raaz Reboot could have had an even better outing at the box office if the film would be decent. Our reviewer saw the film and while he liked Emraan Hashmi’s performance, the storyline was very BLAH. In fact, there was no horror in the film at all.
On the other hand, Amitabh Bachchan‘s Pink has collected Rs 25.29 crore in 4 days and is already in profit. Pink has been loved the masses and with a good word of mouth publicity, it will have a good run at the box office.
