The Nawazuddin Siddiqui starrer is loosely inspired by notorious psychopath Raman Raghav who embarked on a murderous killing spree in Mumbai during the mid-1960s.
“Raman Raghav 2.0” collected Rs 1.20 crores on Friday. The film released in 770 screens across India, read a statement from the makers of the film.
Trade analyst Komal Nahata tweeted: “Opening of ‘Raman Raghav 2.0’ poor. Opening of other releases terrible. Going to be a bad weekend at box office.”
The movie released with six other films, including “Junooniyat” and Hollywood biggie “Independence Day: Resurgence”. Both these films have not earned favourable reviews, however the critics have lauded “Raman Raghav 2.0” for being a taut thriller with impactful performances by not just Nawazuddin, but also Vicky Kaushal.
Distributed by Reliance Entertainment, the film is produced by Phantom Films, co-owned by Kashyap, Vikas Bahl, Vikramaditya Motwane and Madhu Mantena.
