Ajay Devgn’s third directorial film Runway 34 has landed in the cinemas on Friday, the film will have to face a clash with Tiger starrer Heropanti2 and will be battling with KGF2 at the box office.
While the latter film is already having a bull run at the box office, the former has got outstanding advance booking collections and Devgn’s flick enjoys neither, he will have to wait for the opening day collections.
Runway 34 is entirely shot in the lockdown and has the stars like Amitabh Bachchan, Ajay himself doing the main lead along with directing and bankrolling the film. Ajey Nagar aka Carryminati, Rakul, and Boman Irani will also be seen in the flick.
The film reportedly releases in India on around 1800 screens, the budget of the film is said to be well balanced so if the film rakes in over Rs 50 crore it will be called a profitable venture.
Talking about the reviews, the film got a mixed response from the critics they panned the film by calling the overstretched and poor screenplay, however, praised the performances of the main lead.
The Indian Express, NDTV, News 18, and Koimoi gave the film 2.5 out of 5 stars, the first half is said to be decent while the second half is boring. The first half is said to be decent while the second half is boring.
Box Office Collection
Ajay-Amitabh starrer got poor collections from the advance bookings, the film now all depends on the current bookings, if the film churns out over Rs 5 crore on an opening day, it would be called fine collections following there was no such hype amongst the cinephiles. Films business could grow based on the positive word of mouth further.
As per our estimation, it would mint in the range of Rs 4 to 5 crore** from the domestic market on an opening day.
