Ram Gopal Varma's latest Hindi movie Department, which features Amitabh Bachchan, Sanjay Dutt and Rana Daggubati in the leads, has opened to a very poor response at the Box Office on the first day of its release. The film needs to have a big jump if it has to get back its production cost.
Department has received a dismal response from the viewers across the country in the matinee and afternoon shows. The movie has registered 10% to 15% occupancy at both multiplexes as well as single screens. As per the early trends, the film is expected to earn Rs 2.5 to 3 crore at the Box Office.
However, Department is an action movie and the producers of the film had an extensive promotions for it. Despite having big stars like Amitabh and Sanjay in the leads, the gangster flick has received negative reviews, which are said to have taken a toll on its business. Now, it should be seen whether the word of mouth would play a magic at the ticket windows.
