Whatever may be the reviews for Raavan, but what matters is how much business the film does. As per the box-office figures released by Reliance Big Pictures, one of the co-producers of the film, Raavan has done a business of Rs. 530 million. The Tamil version of the film starring the South India superstar Vikram took away the screen as compared to the Telugu version. The Tamil version did a business of around Rs. 110 million while the the Telugu version earned Rs. 40 million, stated the Reliance Big Pictures executive.
Though the reviews of the Tamil version were better than the Hindi make, but the pairing of Abhishek Bachchan with his wife Aishwarya Bachchan, has acted as a magic wand from and pocketed up to Rs 380 million at the box-office.
Initially the film had a mixed response and couldn't hit the screen as powerfully as Houseful or Badmaash Company, Kites and Rajneeti, stated the Box-office trackers. But from Saturday onwards the film took over the screen. The numbers in millions proves the point.
