Super-soldier sci-film action venture Attack which was released last Friday in theatres worldwide has been completely demolished by the Tsunami of Tollywood film RRR in the Hindi belts. Even after getting a good screen count of about 2400 screens at launch, the Lakshya Anand Raj directorial came of as a super flop and now the acting career of John Abraham is in clear danger because Attack is his second flop film in a row after the failure of his previous film Satyameva Jayate 2 at box office India.
One thing is clearly evident right now that in no way Attack is going to recover the budget of ₹ 95 crores from its theatrical run that has been spent on making it so now everything depends on the OTT deal which producers will get in the coming days because even OTT owners might not offer too much for this movie as it has performed quite poorly at box office.
Sri Lankan actress Jacqueline Fernandez is also receiving a lot of flak because of her bad acting performance in Attack. Her role in the film didn’t added too much as it looked like a filler just to increase the overall run time of the film. Although people have praised Rakul Preet Singh a lot for her role of nerdy lab scientist Saba Qureshi.
Makers made a big blunder by releasing Attack at a time when S.S. Rajamouli’s RRR was absolutely dominating the box office. It would’ve been better if they had waited for at least 2 to 3 months more because right now any Bollywood film will face the same fate because a couple more big Tollywood ventures are about to get released soon.
This Robocop style B-town venture failed to improve even on Wednesday. Attack 6th day overall occupancy rate across India has been estimated around 5% – 12% which is shameful and this is a clear sign for Bollywood filmmakers that people won’t support the low quality content anymore as star power doesn’t matter now a days and quality content in the king.
6th Day (Wednesday) Collection of Attack in India is ₹ 1.10 crores (approximately)
