Box office India is calling it below average. The movie did well in first week, but fell badly in the second one. Anil sharma was saying before that they kinda created a "hype" about the high price of Veer but it is not so expensive and he said that movie did well with the masses and the single screen theaters which is a fact confirmed by many. There still isnt a reliable source for telling exact box office figures different sites say different stuff and it gets confusing. Some producers publicize their earnings well and pay well to the press to let everyone know that the movie did well while others just chose to stay mum and let people crib and just pocket the money without shouting off the roof tops that the movie is a hit.
It's okay though. Some people don't bother to check the figures, which is fine.
In any case, the total net gross of the movie according to BOI seems to be around 35 crores. Considering how everyone wanted to write off the movie from the start and the movie got such terrible reviews, I'd say it's done well for itself.
Veer does has it's faults. It's not a perfect movie, but it's not as bad as some people are making it out to be. Of course, everyone has different choices, so I can understand that some people would not like it and some would. However, it is nontheless amusing to see how some people go on and on about it, when it's quite obvious where their bias lies.
But then again, NOT everyone has the ability to be objective and rational.
By the way, there is already a topic on the Box Office Report of Veer, but I guess people wouldn't like to post the update there, as anything positive posted about the movie maybe doesn't go down well with them.
p.p.s. I was waiting for the verdict to be out, and I'll update that on the original topic.
