John Abraham’s action-thriller Rocky Handsome has not performed as per the expectations and finished with average collections on the first weekend at the Box office. After getting a good start, the film had shown a slighter drop on Sunday and finished its first weekend with Rs 16.12 crore which is certainly not pleasing numbers for the makers.
This Nishikant Kamat directorial had started off well with Rs 7.16 crore opening that includes the paid previews. Generally, a big film has grown up in the first weekend but surprisingly Rocky Handsome had shown a dramatic fall down as it had collected only Rs 4.83 crore on Saturday. Unfortunately, Sunday was also affected by the big cricket match between India and Australia, Due to which the film had only fetched Rs 4.13 crore.
These are surely not convincing numbers for this king of big film that has John in the main lead. The stupendous performance of Hollywood film Batman vs Superman and Kapoor and Sons has also another reason for this big drop. Kapoor and Sons had a wonderful first weekend and the film had collected Rs 12.09 crore taking its toll to Rs 59.02 crore. It still holds the third position of the highest grossing film of the year.
Well, it is the ringing bells for Rocky Handsome and it wants to recover the its making costs, then it has to see improved numbers from here till the next weekend with the stability but then the film has to compete with the other films as well as the upcoming release Ki and Ka. Hope for the best.
