Jai Gangaajal: 1st-Week Collections.

Jai Gangaajal: 1st Week Collections.

Budget – The clarity of the budget was not known as it was being published between 30 crores and 40 crores.

Maybe it was the producers’ idea, to send feelers that it was a well-spent movie and not a low budget affair, but once the collections were not as per expectations, they issued a statement that the budget was 30 crore no less no more. The sad but true state of Bollywood where everything is just like Ganga – Hazy and dark. Screenshot_2016-03-05-11-17-31

Day 6 collections – 2 crores approx

Day 7 collections – 1.70 crores approx

Total 1st-week collections – 28 crores approx

Strong – CI and Bihar, single screens

Weak – Multiplexes

Critics total average rating – 2.33/5 below average

Unlike NEERJA, JAI GANGAAJAL is doing well in single screens while multiplexes are being ruled by the Sonam Kapoor starrer.

If screen counts are taken into account JAI GANGAAJAL had 2500 plus in India and 300 in overseas but failed to convert the advantages.

JAI GANGAAJAL is a 2016 Indian crime drama film directed by Prakash Jha. It is a follow-up to the 2003 crime film Gangaajal, and stars Priyanka Chopra in the lead role with Jha appearing in a supporting role. It also features Manav Kaul, Rahul Bhat, and Queen Harish.

The film was released worldwide on 4 March 2016. The Government of Madhya Pradesh declared Jai Gangaajal tax-free on 9 March 2016.

Jai Gangaajal was shot in Bhopal. Priyanka Chopra started shooting for the film in June 2015. The shooting took place in places like Jama Masjid Chowk bazaar in old Bhopal.

GANGAAJAL told the story of how a society gets the police it deserves. Thirteen years later, JAI GANGAAJAL revisits the dusty heartland of Central India and again examines the society– police relationship to tell us a new story. The powerful people, with their vested interests have set up a well-oiled system in Bankipur district. Anyone trying to enforce rules or laws of the civil society is considered as an obstacle and is quickly removed before the status quo gets disturbed. At the critical time when elections are due shortly, the Guardian Minister brings in Abha Mathur (Priyanka Chopra) as the Superintendent of Police. As a woman she will be pliable and will be happy to engage with her desk but Mathur is a woman with a will of her own. She finds the ground reality disturbing. The police are either frozen into inaction or have compromised with the system. The injustice to common people rattles her.When one accident catapults the mob itself into meting out raw justice, Mathur finds herself in a deep dilemma. Through the din of the crowd’s battle cry, the young woman searches for the voice of her own conscience. Will her spirit be crushed by the powers ? Or will she rise to the call of her conscience?
