Goodbye has emerged as the biggest theatrical disaster of 2022. The film did not open well [0.93 crores]had a very bad weekend [3.78 crores] And then somehow reached an unimaginably low number at the end of its first week. [5.61 crores]. The writing was clear on the wall post over the weekend but still one can always hope against hope that there will be some miracle.
None of this happened even though the film was barely running in the second week. It was also the week when Dr. J. and Kantara [Hindi] Reached, both had a combined score over 35 crores. In the process, Vadaa was completely ignored and came in at just over 1 crore, as a result, the film’s collection has remained stagnant till now. 6.75 crore* And it will be for the film as the Amitabh Bachchan-Rishmika Mandana starrer barely has one or two shows left, and that too in select cities.
One can see that the Vikas Behl directed film was low on buzz with zero hype around it. Still, there is nothing to keep a film so quick and so low that it would have been bargained for by anyone associated with it. Among the notable Hindi releases of 2022, Vadaa is among the lowest scorers of the year with nothing to cheer about. There have been a lot of great theatrical disasters this year and Goodbye, despite being a good movie, unfortunately also joins the list. One now waits to see the response to this in the OTT space.
