Bollywood: The most awaited release of Bhaijan, Radhe raked in a bare minimum sum of approximately Rs 4.4 crore internationally on its opening. While the movie was welcomed by an OTT platform Zee5 in India, the foreign Entertainment industries held an official theatrical release.
As per sources, Bhaijan didn’t score a gleaming response from the audience. According to the box office report, the film made around $400000 in the Gulf entertainment world. Analysts reported figures of Rs35 lakh in New Zealand and Rs5.9 lakhs in Australia, while the film gathered only $55000 on its first day in the US.
With only 41,658 views this movie gained an IMDb rating of 2, accounting for Bhaijan’s second lowest-rated film. Until Radhe, Race 3 was the actor’s lowest-rated film on IMDb. Known movie critic and business analyst Taran Adarsh was not happy with Radhe. In his review on Twitter, Adarsh called the movie ‘disappointing’ and awarded just 2 stars.
The core plot of the film based on a Korean film The Outlaws was released as premium video on demand on Zee Plex and digitally through ZEE5 in India. Speaking on Radhe on Friday, Salman thanked his fans for watching the film in droves. Taking it to Twitter, Salman revealed that the film had raked in 4.2 million streams on the first day of release, and wrote, “Wishing ev1 a v Happy Eid.
