12th Fail Box Office Collection Day 4: Vindhu Vinod Chopra has returned with a new film. This time, the director worked with Vikrant Massey on ’12th Fail,’ which celebrates a never-give-up attitude.
12th Fail Box Office Collection Day 4
The film ’12th Fail’ by Vidhu Vinod Chopra and Vikrant Massey was released in theatres on October 27. Monday, October 30th, saw a precipitous decline in domestic sales. The movie has just grossed about Rs 1.20 crore.
Taran Adarsh, a trade analyst, also reported that ’12th Fail’ grossed Rs 75 crore on National chains by 10 p.m. on its first day of release. In addition, the film gained up speed later on. It has received generally positive reviews, so robust word-of-mouth could give the film a boost over the weekend.
About the Movie
Typically, ageing filmmakers are preoccupied with their own mortality or with appropriating what they perceive the youth of today to be like. In doing so, these authors, including some of the finest in the country, produce abominable rehashes of their once-popular works. But not Vidhu Vinod Chopra. At the age of 71, he is young in a way that few others are, young enough to break away from the constraints of his signature filmmaking style, which he has successfully honed over decades, in order to create a timeless film. Conflict cannot be contained within a time frame.
Although the incredible true story of IPS officer Manoj Kumar Sharma served as inspiration for 12th Fail, it is the story of anyone who has ever dared to dream beyond their means.
Chopra wrote, directed, and produced the film, which begins in a desolate village in Chambal. Manoj (Vikrant Massey) is preparing chits to deceive on his Class 12 Mathematics examination in 1997. The instructors at his school are renowned for writing answers on the blackboard for all students to copy, allowing each student to pass without learning a single thing. However, Manoj is doing it anyway, just to be certain.
It is his accidental encounter with the honest police officer that teaches him for the first time in his life the strength of integrity combined with authority.
So he resolves to become a police officer. As fate would have it, he encounters an improbable ally at the Gwalior train station. At this point, Manoj has been away from home for several days, enduring hunger and having his meagre funds and supplies taken along the way. Pritam Pandey (Anant Vijay Joshi) doesn’t just pay for Manoj’s food; he also expands his ambition by informing him about the UPSC exam and inspiring him to become an IPS officer.
