Jai Gangaajal turns out little during the second week and the only film which was observed ruling out Box Office Collections was Neerja. Jai Gangaajal took a great opening but not able to sustain it after a stage. Other movies in the competition took it as an opportunity and ruled out collections in the second week of the month.
This month is usually a bad month in the industry because of burden in offices of accounts closing. As a result, the audience goes low. Although going over expectations Jai Gangaajal opening collections were 5.50 crore but it failed to take a big start on the Saturday and Sunday.
One of the prima facie reason of this apportionment is fan following of Prakash Jha; Prakash has a very dedicated fan following who keeps on following his movies and have a distinctive taste of the film.
The movie was observed doing a great business in many countries including Dubai and, USA. Although the collections were not massive, the response was notable. Priyanka Chopra fans somewhat loved the movie for being out of the race, but many are disappointed with her personally.
Jai Gangaajal released on around 2600 screens in India and 300 screens overseas, which is quite similar to the release buzz of Shah Rukh Khan’s Dilwale. The 2nd Week of Jai Gangaajal seems to be the closing week for the movie, and it seems that it wouldn’t last more than that.
Still the movie has done a great business minting out an incredible opportunity at a correct time, one of the reasons leading film collect average on the box office was a political season in North India.
