Mumbai: Salman Khan’s much-awaited movie Dabangg 3 released on December 20 and the cop movie seems to have received flake from critics.
While many critics termed Dabangg 3’s screenplay underwhelming, others say it’s a film made for masses, especially Salman’s diehard fans.
Dabangg 3, starring Salman Khan, has collected an approximate Rs 22-23 crores net on day one, according to a report in Box Office India. It also adds that the prevailing condition across the country has contributed to lesser than expected numbers.
The Prabhudheva directorial also brings back Sonakshi Sinha, Arbaaz Khan, and Mahie Gill, while Sudeep plays the primary antagonist.
Dabangg 3 is the third installment in the super-hit Dabang series, which generated a lot of curiosity about the movie. Its promos also grabbed many eyeballs and skyrocketed its expectations. But, the film suffered from low-key marketing, a lack of promotional plan and weak music and lower screen count than Dabangg and Dabangg 2. Many Salman Khan fans complained of them for these factors.
The aspects resulted in poor pre-sale in the advance booking for Dabangg 3. Another reason for the poor booking is that Salman Khan enjoys a huge fan following from the Muslim community, but many of them were busy with the protest against the CAA (Citizenship Amendment Bill).
