‘Mumbai Saga,’ starring John Abraham and Emraan Hashmi, was released in theaters on March 19. The action-crime thriller, which depicts the changing face of the city during the 1980s and 1990s, was set to be released in June of last year, but after theaters were closed due to the coronavirus pandemic-induced nationwide lockdown, there were rumors that the film would instead be released digitally. The film premiered today in over 2000 theaters across the world. The film, directed by Sanjay Gupta, is receiving positive reviews from critics.
The film’s powerful dialogues and action scenes have sparked debate. John’s performance, Emraan, has been lauded by many. Early estimates position the film’s opening weekend gross between Rs 2.25 and 2.75 crore. The Mumbai circuit, as well as other circuits with Maharashtra centers like Nizam and CP Berar, have seen the highest demand for gangster and crime films. However, because of the COVID constraints, the Maharashtra circuit may not have a good selection for the film.
Due to night curfews and restrictions, Mumbai Saga is expected to do a 2-2.50 crore nett first-day revenue, according to box office India. The film would certainly gross more than 2 crore nett, and if the night curfews were not in place, it would also gross more than 2.50 crore nett, but that is now likely to be the upper end of the range. Across the country, collection rates were poor.
Suniel Shetty, Mahesh Manjrekar, Kajal Aggarwal, Rohit Roy, Gulshan Grover, and Prateik Babbar are among the cast members of Mumbai Saga. Against the backdrop of the 1980s and 1990s, the film transports us to a world of police, gangsters, deception, betrayal, and crime. Bhushan Kumar, T-Series’ Krishan Kumar, White Feather Films’ Anuradha Gupta, and Sangeeta Ahir are behind it.
