New Delhi: Maverick filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj's latest release 'Pataakha' might have been received warmly by the critics who appreciated the performance but it got a lukewarm response from the viewers. 'Pataakha' is filled with rustic flavour and brings forth the story set in the heartland of the country.
Noted film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter and shared the latest Box Office figures. He wrote: “#Pataakha is at low levels again on Day 6... Should cross ₹ 7.50 cr in Week 1... Fri 90 lakhs, Sat 1.40 cr, Sun 1.75 cr, Mon 94 lakhs, Tue 1.56 cr, Wed 56 lakhs. Total: ₹ 7.11 cr. India biz.”
