This week we see the release of another content driven cinema, Laal Kaptaan, which stars Saif Ali Khan in the lead role. Let us check how much Navdeep Singh directed film can earn on the first day at the box office.
Directed by Navdeep Singh, who earlier made riveting thrillers like Manorama Six Feet Under and NH 10, Laal Kaptaan is based on a similar theme for which the trailer had garnered decent views as the makers revealed each chapter subsequently. Saif Ali Khan has been known to experiment with meatier roles though he has never been a box office champ, the story of Laal Kaptaan looks the same.
Though the trailer of Laal Kaptaan was released few weeks back, the audience reaction has been positive. However, , the Hriithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff starrer WAR is dominating the market and will pose some competition. There are few more films releasing, Vikram Bhatt’s Ghost Stories in particular, Laal Kaptaan is getting released in pre-Diwali phase which is generally dull and has one week to make impact before Housefull 4, Made In China and Saand Ki Aankh releases.
As per our analysis, Laal Kaptaan should open somewhere between Rs 3-4 crore and will completely depend upon the word of mouth reviews to make impact at the box office. The dark thriller is being produced by Eros International and Aanand L Rai.
