Today, we saw two noteworthy Bollywood releases arriving in theatres, and none of them have made a good start at the Indian box office. Speaking about Adah Sharma’s Bastar: The Naxal Story, the start has been dismal, and the film is in a dicey position to even hit the 1 crore mark on day 1. Keep reading to know more!

Reception of Bastar

After delivering a blockbuster with The Kerala Story, director Sudipto Sen is back with another important and sensitive subject. Considering the success of the last film, expectations were high for this latest release, but the buzz was totally missing. Talking about critics’ reviews, they have been mixed. Even word-of-mouth among neutral audiences is mixed so far. So, a big turnaround won’t be seen.

Day 1 estimates of Bastar

During the pre-release phase, Bastar failed to create any sort of buzz around itself. As a result, it didn’t find any momentum on day 1. As per early trends flowing in, the film earned a disastrous collection of 0.60-1 crore on the opening day. It’s clearly a poor start, and if compared to Adah Sharma-Sudipto Sen’s last film, The Kerala Story’s day 1 of 8.03 crores, it stands nowhere.

Bastar’s box office journey from hereon

With such a disastrous start, it won’t be impactful even if Bastar shows growth over the weekend. During The Kerala Story, the craze was clearly seen among audiences, and the film slowly turned into a movement. In this case, the collection will remain dismal, and there’s no scope on weekdays either. As far as the opening weekend is concerned, the collection is expected to stay at 5 crores or lower.

The film’s poor performance will definitely help Sidharth Malhotra’s Yodha and Ajay Devgn-R Madhavan’s Shaitaan as both films are expected to steal a chunk of shows from the Adah Sharma starrer during weekdays.

Let’s see if Bastar manages to surprise us by showing a miraculous performance!
