Ram Gopal Varma directed Bollywood movie Department has received a very dismal opening at the worldwide Box Office. Amitabh-Sanjay-Rana starrer action flick has raked in approximately Rs 2.57 crore from the collection centres in India, UK, Australia and New Zealand on the first day of its release.
Department registered 10% to 15% occupancy at both multiplexes as well as single screens. The film collected approximately Rs 2.5 crore at the Box Office in India on Friday. Previous week's releases like The Avengers, Vicky Donor and Ishaqzaade seemed to be doing better business than this movie.
The movie has opened to a very dull response at the International collection centres on the first day. Department has grossed Rs 3.8 lacs (£4,418) from 12 screens at the UK Box Office on Friday. It has earned Rs 2.74 lacs (A$5,130) from 13 screens in Australia. It has collected Rs 68 thousand (NZ$1,661) from 7 screens in New Zealand.
However, Department is an action movie starring Amitabh Bachchan, Sanjay Dutt and Rana Daggubati in the leads. The gangster flick has received negative reviews, which are said to have taken a toll on its business. It should get a big leap, if it needs to get back its production cost.
