Although the post-Diwali response has been lukewarm, experts said that the Abhishek Sharma-directorial is off to a good start, especially in the mass centres.
Film trade analyst Sumit Kadel took to Twitter to share that ‘Ram Setu’ has shown a positive opening trend. He even called it the second-biggest opener of this year.
“‘Ram Setu’ takes a good opening… Second-Biggest Opener of 2022… Evening and night shows will be more strong,” his tweet read.

According to a Box Office India report, the movie – touted to be a one of its kind action-adventure film – opened in the 30 per cent to 35 per cent range. The trends show that the movie started with good occupancy, and the Hindi belt saw ‘houseful’ tags during the noon shows.
The report further said that the film may touch the Rs 15 crore (nett) mark on its opening day.
Directed by Sharma, the film is inspired by the mention of the Ram Setu bridge in the Hindu epic Ramayana. The film features the actor as an archaeologist, who is on a mission to protect Ram Setu from evil forces. Through the journey, he encounters various challenges.
Besides Kumar, the movie also stars Jacqueline Fernandez and Nushrratt Bharuccha in pivotal roles. It marks the Bollywood debut of Tollywood star Satyadev Kancharana.
Earlier, producer Vikram Malhotra, who has worked with Kumar in several movies before, insisted that the Afghanistan and Boat action scenes are two of the major highlights of his Diwali 2022 release.
The movie has been co-produced by Cape of Good Films along with Amazon Prime Video, Abundantia Entertainment, and Lyca Productions.
Meanwhile, the trends for ‘Thank God’ are not yet in, but sentiments suggest that ‘Ram Setu’ will lead the numbers on day one. Directed by Indra Kumar, ‘Thank God’ also features Rakul Preet Singh and Nora Fatehi.
