Liger box office: 90% shows canceled even down south, Declared Flop

The Vijay Deverakonda and Ananya Panday-starrer Liger (2022) is one of the most badly received films this year, panned by both audiences and critics alike. But the movie’s Hindi version hasn’t faced much slack on its opening day.

Liger box office: 90% shows canceled even down south, Declared Flop

Directed by Puri Jagannadh, the film opened at an average number of Rs 4.50 crore net on 26 August, in Hindi, as per figures shared by the trade website BoxOfficeIndia.com. Liger had made an additional Rs1.25 crore net from the paid previews on Thursday evening, taking its Hindi total to almost Rs6 crore so far. Four days after its debut, the movie is about to reach the end of its theatrical run, according to the report.

After a sharp reduction in attendance on Monday, over 90% of performances were canceled in the states of Tamil Nadu, Kerala, and Karnataka; theatres in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana are anticipated to follow suit. This is Vijay Deverakonda's third film in a row to underperform at the box office.

In Hindi-speaking countries, where the movie has so far grossed about Rs 15 crore and is anticipated to end its run with about Rs 20 crore, things aren't doing much better. Liger's performance in the Hindi-speaking market is comparable to past duds like Jersey, starring Shahid Kapoor, and Jayeshbhai Jordaar, starring Ranveer Singh.

The failure of Liger and the inability of Radhe Shyam prove that you cannot produce pan-India hits in today’s environment. Many have tried, and many have failed. One common factor among all these failures is that all these films were also critical failures. The audience first rejected the content and then dismissed the pan-India tag. The propagation may have given them a solid start in some respects but did not build momentum due to the absence of matter.

Shubhra Gupta had written in her one-star review, “There’s nothing new or fresh about the ingredients that go into making this Vijay Deverakonda film. The plot is filled with many outlandish situations, and the treatment is jaded.”
