Vishwaroopam 2 Day 1 Box Office Collection: Hindi version of Kamal Haasan starrer opens to a dull response
Vishwaroopam 2 Day Kamal Haasan’s Vishwaroopam 2 that has been shot on a grand scale has witnessed an average response from the audience
Kamal Haasan starrer Vishwaroopam 2 released on Friday in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi. Directed, produced and co-written by Haasan, the second part of Vishwaroopam franchise also stars Rahul Bose, Shekhar Kapur, Pooja Kumar and Andrea Jeremiah return, Waheeda Rahman and Anant Mahadevan. Well, Kamal Haasan is known for delivering some rocking performances on the silver screen and has highly managed to impress the audience once again as a RAW agent. But looks like, somewhere around the film has failed to attract the audience.
The film that has been shot on a grand scale has witnessed an average response from the audience, which has resulted in Box Office business. According to film trade analyst Girish Johar, the spy thriller in the Hindi belt or northern part of India has performed quite bad. While speaking to Pinkvilla.com about the Hindi business of Vishwaroopam 2, Johar said, “It’s not up to the mark. It has not done as expected in the Hindi belt. The film has done somewhere around 1.5 crores in Hindi version in the early trends.”
On talking about the average review of the film and why the Kamal Haasan’s charisma has not worked in North India, Johar said, “What I believe is Kamal Haasan is sure shot a big icon in Indian Cinema but I think the film had similar kind of fate in the first part as well. The audience in the second time around were also not that keen because last time also the film did quite an ordinary business in Hindi version. So probably, this kind of storytelling he is trying to bring, Hindi audiences are not that much inclined to. That’s one of the reasons. The reviews for the film are also quite mixed.”
Well, despite the controversy, the Hindi version of the film had done exceptionally well at the box office with 45% opening. Nevertheless, Vishwaroopam 2 is expected to pick up in the coming days in view of Independence Day holiday. Movie’s fate will be decided only after the first weekend business at the Box Office
