Monday was practically the last chance for Raksha Bandhan to show up and show any sort of upward movement. Unfortunately, what happened was the opposite as the film fell instead of seeing an increase in numbers. The film had collected 7.05 crore on Sunday and while there were indications that it would fail to see double-digit scores on Monday, despite the Independence Day holiday, it was shocking that the numbers did not rise at all and instead fell all the way 6.31 crore,

What’s even more disappointing is that these numbers are the lowest on the five-day extended weekend, when in fact Monday should have been the highest performing day for the film due to a national holiday. Agreed that late evening and nighttime shows were bound to be affected as the five-day extended weekend was drawing to a close. Still, the rest of the day should have shown better progress, something that didn’t happen at all.

Raksha Bandhan stands now 34.47 crore And it’s bad enough for a family social drama that came with great expectations. There was a lot to create awareness about the film along with the promotion and marketing and the release was also quite substantial. However, the audience did not move for the first few days and subsequently, despite a good holiday period from Saturday to Monday, there was no real interest among the large population. Thin layer is a huge theatrical flop and now waiting to see if it will touch 50 crore mark in his lifetime.
