Raaz Reboot opened to mix reviews and mostly empty theatres on day one. However, the film did better in the mass belt as opposed to multiplexes and the box office collection is expected to be low.
Emraan Hashmi-starrer Raaz Reboot is yet another horror film in the Raaz franchise. With Gaurav Arora and Kriti Kharbanda in the lead, it has Emraan Hashmi in an important role. Director Vikram Bhatt has chosen deep, dark forests and other exotic locales in Romania as the setting of this horror film.
#RaazReboot Fri ₹ 6.30 cr. India biz… Best in single screens/mass circuits [North especially],” Bollywood trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted early today.
Bollywood trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter to share the details of the film’s performance at the box office. He shared, “#RaazReboot slow at plexes, better at single screens/mass belt…”.
The film is getting a strong competition from Amitabh Bachchan-starrer Pink. The film, directed by Aniruddha Roy Chaudhry, is getting a positive word of mouth.
Also, it was reported that this fourth installment of the popular Raaz franchise, helmed by Bhatt, was leaked online. The news of its leak went viral online on Tuesday night, with lead actor Emraan Hashmi urging his fans to avoid watching the leaked version. But later the director said, “It’s not really leaked. We put in a bogus file because we know what’s been happening for the past few films, and we have understood that.” Apparently, the bogus file was downloaded 5000 times within 10 to 15 minutes of the news.
Raaz Reboot is doing better in the mass belt than cities, Taran tweeted.

Like almost all movies from the Bhatt camp, the music of the film is hummable but not especially memorable. The franchise has juiced out as much horror it could in the last few films, mixed it up with romance and managed to rake in profits. Can Raaz Reboot manage the same trick?
