Dibakar Banerjee's Detective Byomkesh Bakshy released today! As much hyped the film was, it failed to gather much audience in the theatre owing to the release of the much awaited Hollywood film, Furious 7 in India.
The death of one of the lead actors gave the movie an extra mileage and people had been waiting eagerly to watch his last movie on the big screen. The bookings have been made for the coming weekend as well, trade expert Taran Adarsh tweeted, "#FastAndFurious7 all set to emerge BIGGEST opener [Hollywood films] in India. Also, HIGHEST opener of 2015, overtaking Hindi films."
With such a tough fight we wonder if Sushant Singh Rajput's Detective Byomkesh Bakshy will manage to stand true.
The film has released in over 1240 screens in India and about 330 screens internationally. All in all the worldwide screen count is a total of 1570 screens.
In other languages too, Tamil, Kannada industry etc, have released good movies making it quite a tough challenge for Detective Byomkesh Bakshy to survive the Box Office war.
Another drawback would be the movie it self, though it is a good cinema, it is more or less like a lengthy art cinema which not everyone prefers to watch in theatre especially as an entertaining weekend watch.
Well, based on word of mouth promotions, the movie may fare more than expected. Stay tuned to know the Box Office collections of the movie.
