Rangoon, set in the 1940, will take you for a ride and the lead stars Kangana Ranaut, Shahid Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan have left no stone unturned while putting up their show in the film. The film was in headlines ever since it was announced and the buzz around Rangoon was all over the news.
Well, contrary to that, the film has not started on a good note at the box office. According to BOI, it had an occupancy rate of 10-15% in the morning shows. But, the reviews which have been pouring in since morning are boasting of the brilliant performances by the starcast.
Today is Mahashivratri and that might be one of the reasons for such a less occupancy rate in the morning shows. But, it’s expected that things by the evening might improve and the long weekend factor will also help the movie rake in numbers.
It’ll be interesting to see the opening day collection of Rangoon. If we go by the releases coming week, there are no big movies, so Rangoon has the benefit of two weeks till Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt’s Badrinath Ki Dulhania hits the screens on March 10.
The positive word-of-mouth might also become the driving force for the film to do wonders at the ticket windows. Critics have praised Kangana’s performance as she outshines in the film. Recently, the movie also landed in a legal issue, after Roy Wadia claimed that Kangana’s character Julia is lifted from Hunterwali and is based on Fearless Nadia.
