The box office fortunes of action crime film Mumbai Saga went down on Saturday instead of up, as was expected. It collected Rs 2.40 crore, which is a downwards trajectory from its Friday opening collection, Rs 2.82 crore.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted out the film’s box office figures. He wrote, “#MumbaiSaga Fri 2.82 cr, Sat 2.40 cr. Total: ₹ 5.22 cr. #India biz.”

The low collections may indicate that even after the restrictions have been lifted and COVID-19 vaccines available (though not readily), not many film aficionados are willing to go to theatres just yet. The cases are rising in several big cities like Mumbai and Delhi and several other regions, and this might be the reason behind the reluctance.

Mumbai Saga does not look like it will be the movie that revives the theatrical business. A Sanjay Gupta directorial, it is written by Gupta and Vaibhav Vishal. The makers will be hoping for a huge jump on Sunday, if they are to recover the production costs.

Suniel Shetty, Kajal Aggarwal, Rohit Roy, Anjana Sukhani, Mahesh Manjrekar, Prateik Babbar, Samir Soni, Amole Gupte and Gulshan Grover also feature in the cast.

The Indian Express film critic Shubhra Gupta was not impressed by the film, giving it 1.5 stars. She wrote in her review, “In Gupta’s better films, the bad guys used to be more interesting, the action used to be classy, and there’s been no one better than him to organise that classic money shot — a row of sharp guys in black, walking slo mo towards us. I can watch Kaante again just for that one scene.”
