Rangasthalam Collections In Japan: Opening weekend total box office collection



It’s not unusual for movie enthusiasts to turn to the internet for the latest scoop on upcoming films and their box office achievements. Fans are constantly eager to learn more about their favorite movies and how well they perform at the box office. One such movie that’s making waves is the period action drama “Rangasthalam,” starring Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Ram Charan, and it has recently hit the screens in Japan. Fans are buzzing with excitement about the film’s release and its potential box office performance. In this article, we’ve gathered all the essential information about the movie and its box office debut, so let’s dive right in.


Rangasthalam’s Outstanding Reception in Japan


Back in 2018, the megahit “Rangasthalam,” featuring Ram Charan, graced the Indian screens and performed remarkably well. However, what’s even more astonishing is its outstanding performance in Japan, where it has surpassed the much-anticipated “KGF” series. This success is a testament to the growing popularity of Indian cinema among Japanese audiences. Just last year, SS Rajamouli’s action-packed epic, “RRR,” received a warm welcome in Japan when it hit theaters in October 2022. During its theatrical run, it even surpassed the box office records set by Indian blockbusters like “Muthu” and “Baahubali 2.” The film had the potential to rake in more than 100 crore rupees.

Now, as “Rangasthalam” makes its debut in Japan, it finds itself sharing the spotlight with “KGF: Chapter 1” and “KGF: Chapter 2,” directed by Prashanth Neel and starring Yash. Interestingly, “Rangasthalam” has not only dominated advance bookings but has also outperformed both parts of “KGF.” Let’s take a closer look at their first-weekend box office collections in Japan:

“KGF: Chapter 2”: $5,200,800

“KGF: Chapter 1”: $5,860,210

“Rangasthalam”: $10,131,550

“Rangasthalam” opened in Japan with a profit of 2.5 million yen across approximately 70 screens. With overwhelmingly positive word-of-mouth among Japanese viewers, a successful theatrical run is highly anticipated. This film, produced by Mythri Movie Makers, was a commercial triumph upon its original Telugu release in 2018. It marked the highest-grossing film in the careers of both Samantha and Ram Charan, amassing over 200 crore rupees at the global box office.

In addition to “Rangasthalam,” the legendary Kannada period action drama movies “KGF: Chapter 1” and “KGF: Chapter 2,” featuring the superstar Yash, also made their way to Japanese theaters on July 14. Together, they earned a staggering 11 million yen, equivalent to 65 lacs, during their opening weekend, with around 7840 admissions. The first installment of “KGF” brought in 5.8 million yen (35 lacs) from 4120 viewings, while the second one collected 5.2 million yen (30 lacs) from 3720 viewings. Both films garnered positive reviews, leaving us eager to see how they perform in the coming weeks. These two Prashanth Neel-directed films collectively grossed around 1450 crore rupees at the global box office, with “KGF: Chapter 2” securing its position as the fourth-highest-grossing Indian movie of all time with approximately 1210 million dollars.

As “Rangasthalam” continues to make waves in Japan’s cinema landscape and delight audiences, it’s evident that Indian cinema’s appeal knows no bounds. Fans worldwide eagerly await more box office milestones and cinematic masterpieces from the Indian film industry.
