Brahmastra: Part One- Shiva, one of the most-awaited Bollywood movies of this year premiered on Friday, September, 9, 2022. The Brahmastra box office collection on its opening day was massive and is indeed a ‘blessing’ for the Indian film industry. This is due to the fact that several movies that were released in recent months saw considerable backlash from the audience. People have been on a spree to boycott Bollywood and the worst affected releases recently were Laal Singh Chaddha, Raksha Bandhan, and Dobaaraa.

On the other hand, Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt (#RanAlia) starrer Brahmastra appears to have profited from the excitement in audience that was built prior to the release. The movie has reportedly had a successful opening weekend at the box office.
According to Bollywood Hungama, the movie made between Rs. 36.50 and Rs. 38.50 crores on its first day of release, ranking it the most successful non-holiday release. BoxOfficeIndia.com data shows an estimate of Brahmastra box office collection on its release to be between Rs. 35 and Rs. 36 crore. Both these metrics are impeccable as it suggests Brahmastra day 1 box office collection to be none less than Rs. 35 crore, which is indeed huge. Looking at the huge Brahmastra budget for production, we do know that if it didn’t do well, it might have been one of the biggest blows to the industry.
However, it seems that the audience is still trying to curb the hype by different means. A Twitter user tweeted about a 300+ seater multiplex to be having only seven people watching Brahmastra. He tweeted that:
This suggests that Brahmastra might face backlash in the coming days. But yes, currently everything seems to be in control as it grossed well on its opening day. Moreover, the Brahmastra movie is currently in high demand because 2022 has been a difficult year for the industry at the box office. No other movie has made the box office loaded with cash, with the exception of a few titles such as Gangubai Kathiawadi, The Kashmir Files, and Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2.
The Brahmastra budget for production was Rs. 410 crore, which makes it the most expensive production ever in Hindi cinema. This record was earlier held by YRF’s Thugs of Hindostan, which cost about Rs 310 crore to produce.
