'Gangs of Wasseypur 2' has a restricted run

IndiaGlitz [Saturday, August 18, 2012]

The way 'Gangs of Wasseypur 2' played over it's mid-week release, it was apparent that the film wasn't really headed towards a total that would have resulted in the makers smiling.

The film opened on a barely average note and when the entire extended weekend passed by without any rise in collections, it was apparent that this Anurag Kashyap film would have a restricted run for itself.

The first week's collections (over 9 days) reads a little over 18 crores which just about manages to bring the film closer to the coverage mark.

Taking into consideration the fact that this is a starless affair and not quite directed at the family audience, the film (in both parts) has at least brought Anurag into the commercial arena.

Overall though the collections are still disappointing for a film which definitely deserved better.

However, lack of star value, abundance of adult content (violence, language) and the biggest factor of them all - arrival of 'Ek Tha Tiger' - means the film would see a premature end in theatres.

Collectively, 'Gangs of Wassseypur 1 and 2' would end at over 50 crores mark which is the highest that an Anurag Kashyap film has ever scored at the box office.

He would definitely be hoping for a better box office outcome in films to come, now that some substantial moolah has flowed in.
