    Aditya Roy Kapur ’s Rashtra Kavach Om and R Madhavan starrer Rocketry : The Nambi Effect was released into the theatres on July 1. While there were high expectations from both the movies, the films witnessed a rather dismal opening at the box office. However, after the first weekend, Madhavan’s film seems to have gained a significant pace but alas, the same cannot be said for Aditya’s actioner.

    Talking about Rastra Kavach Om, the movie opened with only Rs 1.51 crore at the box office. While it seemed that the film will pick up some decent pace at the box office over the weekend, Aditya Roy Kapur’s film failed to perform. The total box office collections of the movie now stand at only Rs 3 crore. The negative reviews by the critics and the audiences are furthermore making things difficult for the action flick. Reportedly, some shows of the movie are also being replaced by Jugjugg Jeeyo which is still running successfully at the box office.

    On the other hand, things look slightly better for R Madhavan’s Rocketry: The Nambi Effect. While the biographical drama had also opened to a lackluster collection of only Rs 75 lakh, the movie has witnessed a steady rise in the collections after the first weekend. The movie amassed Rs 3 crore on Saturday (July 2) and on Sunday (July 3) the movie further saw a rise in collections wherein it earned Rs 3.70 crore. This has resulted in the total collection of the movie being Rs 8.40 crore at the box office. Madhavan’s performance and the detailed research into the life of former aerospace engineer Nambi Narayanan have been appreciated in the film and the positive word-of-mouth can have a further beneficial impact on the box office collections of the film.

    Rashtra Kavach Om has been directed by Kapil Verma and also stars Sanjana Sanghi, Jackie Shroff, Prakash Raj , and Ashutosh Rana in the lead roles. Rocketry marks R Madhavan’s directorial debut. It also has a cameo performance by Shah Rukh Khan .
