This week’s two new releases, namely Rocketry: The Nambi Effect starring R Madhavan with an all important cameo by Shah Rukh Khan & Rashtra Kavach Om, starring Aditya Roy Kapur and Sanjana Sanghi opened to low box office numbers. While Rocketry: The Nambi Effect garnered Rs. 75 lakh nett in Hindi on day 1, Rashtra Kavach Om did around Rs. 1.25 cr nett on day 1. The day 2 had Rashtra Kavach Om showing a drop in the numbers while Rocketry grew by a healthy 65 percent. Both films grew on Sunday but the growth of Rocketry was better than that of Om.

On Monday, Rocketry: The Nambi Effect recorded numbers almost similar to its first day with footfalls higher than its first day. The numbers on Tuesday have come higher than Monday and this anomalous trend at the box office indicates that there is a lot that this film can do. Although, the numbers on day 1 were not encouraging, it is the first Monday and now Tuesday that gives the film a real chance to sustain longer at the box office. Earlier this year, Vikram (Hindi), which had a poor opening of around Rs. 35-40 lakh on day 1, went on to nett around Rs. 10 cr in its lifetime, with weekdays recording footfalls higher than the first day. Rocketry would look to repeat what Vikram did In Hindi, but it is really about where the second Friday lands. The film had a very conservative release, centered around multiplexes in high end cities. 

Rashtra Kavach Om fell further on Tuesday at the box office, and this is after a very low start. After a weekend total of what ideally had to be its first day numbers, the numbers on Monday and Tuesday have been 60 lakh and 50 lakh respectively. If the film was not heavily budgeted, extensively promoted and widely released, this hold could have been considered fair, but that sadly is not the case. The film’s run will potentially end in a couple of days, after the release of Thor: Love & Thunder and Khuda Haafiz Chapter 2 : Agni Pariksha.

The nett box office collections for this week’s releases are as follows:-

Rashtra Kavach Om:

Day 1 – Rs. 1.25 cr

Day 2 – Rs. 1.20 cr

Day 3 – Rs. 1.40 cr

Day 4 – Rs. 60 lakh

Day 5 – Rs. 50 lakh

Total – Rs. 4.95 cr

Rocketry: The Nambi Effect:

Day 1 – Rs. 75 lakh

Day 2 – Rs. 1.25 cr

Day 3 – Rs. 1.85 cr

Day 4 – Rs. 70 lakh

Day 5 – Rs. 72 lakh

Total – Rs. 5.27 cr
