The highly anticipated movie “Mission Raniganj,” starring Akshay Kumar and Parineeti Chopra, hit the screens recently. According to Box Office India, the film has made impressive ₹7 crore at box office so far. On its first day, it earned around ₹2.75 crore. Notably, on the second day, the movie experienced significant boost, with 55% increase in collections, raking in ₹4.25 crore.
Challenges in Specific Regions
Despite the film’s central character being a Sikh, it hasn’t performed as well as expected in certain regions like East Punjab, especially when compared to other movies like Fukrey 3. The movie’s prospects in Maharashtra, West Bengal, and Nizam/Andhra regions seem challenging. The upcoming Sunday might be affected by the cricket match between India and Australia.
Mission Raniganj’s Big Box Office Win
Directed by Tinu Suresh Desai, “Mission Raniganj” tells the inspiring story of late mining engineer Jaswant Singh Gill, who led a courageous rescue mission in a flooded coal mine in Raniganj in November 1989, saving trapped miners.
Renowned film critic Taran Adarsh praised the movie, calling it impactful and awarded it a solid 4-star rating. He appreciated its gripping narrative, thrilling moments, and breathtaking climax. Adarsh specifically praised the performances of Akshay Kumar and Ravi Kishan.
