Pankaj Tripathi's latest film, ‘Main Hoon Atal’, based on the life of India's former Prime Minister, late Atal Bihari Vajpayee, was released in theaters on Friday. Since its first poster release, the film had been a topic of discussion. However, despite the pre-release buzz, it received mixed reviews from critics and didn't generate a positive word of mouth among the audience. This impacted its opening day performance, with the film failing to meet expected initial success.

Opening Collection of ‘Main Hoon Atal’

The biopic of one of India's most prominent political figures, Atal Bihari Vajpayee, garnered significant attention before its release. However, this buzz did not translate into box office collections. According to sources, ‘Main Hoon Atal’ managed to collect around 1 crore rupees on its first day.

While ‘Main Hoon Atal’ is not a big-budget film or released in a large number of screens, it still needs a strong weekend collection for box office success. But given its opening day performance, the film's profitability seems challenging.

No Major Competing Releases, Yet Low Earnings

On the same Friday, no other highly-anticipated films were released, yet ‘Main Hoon Atal’ struggled to impress the audience. The film ‘Hanuman’, released last week, continues to be the audience’s favorite.

Directed by Ravi Jadhav and written by Ravi Virmani, ‘Main Hoon Atal’ had a good opportunity to impress audiences and perform well at the box office. However, the film seems to be missing this chance. Alongside lead actor Pankaj Tripathi, the film also features well-known actors like Piyush Mishra, Dayashankar Pandey, and Pramod Pathak."
