The occasion of Sankranthi hasn’t been very kind to the films and Box Office released on the day of the festival. Though movies like Gang and Jai Simha is performing better in mass areas and has seen a growth in their box-office viewership, the overall mood at the box office seems rather gloomy.
Produced by Nagarjuna and directed by Sree Ranjani the movie Rangula Raatnam failed to impress the box office. Rangula Raatnam stars Raj Tarun and Chitra Shukla in lead roles in what can be described as a very slow paced family drama. The critics of the Rangula Raatnam pointed out the fact that there was hardly anything in the film that would appeal to the audiences. The story’s base was very familiar but told in a very lethargic way.
Rangula Raatnam has failed miserably both in the domestic markets and in USA. The gross collection reports in USA show only a $40,000 plus in its opening weekend.
