Radheyshyam Box Office Collection: The Film Had a Total Worldwide Gross of ₹79 Crore on Its Opening Day!

Radha Krishna Kumar’s Radhe Shyam is a 2022 Indian period love drama film that he wrote and directed. UV Creations and T-Series produced the film, which was shot in Telugu and Hindi simultaneously. Prabhas and Pooja Hegde appear in it. The film is set in 1970s Italy and depicts the narrative of Vikramaditya, a palmist who is torn between fate and his love for Prerana.

The Telugu version’s score is composed by Thaman S, while the Hindi version’s score is composed by Sanchit Balhara and Ankit Balhara. For the Hindi and Telugu versions of the film, there are two different soundtracks. The Hindi songs were composed by Mithoon, Amaal Mallik, and Manan Bhardwaj, whereas the Telugu tracks were composed by Justin Prabhakaran. Manoj Paramahamsa is in charge of cinematography, while Kotagiri Venkateswara Rao is in charge of editing. Filming for the film began in October 2018 and completed in July 2021, with locations including Hyderabad, Italy, and Georgia.

It was scheduled to be released on July 30, 2021, but was postponed owing to the COVID-19 pandemic. Radhe Shyam opened in theatres on March 11, 2022, to mixed reviews, with praise for the actors and production qualities but criticism for the narrative and narration. The film was a box office flop, with reported losses of over a hundred crore rupees, the largest ever for an Indian film.

Storyline:

Vikramaditya, a renowned palmist, predicts that India’s prime minister will declare emergency, and it will happen. In another occasion, he advises a powerful businessman to put politics aside and concentrate on taking over his family’s company. That man’s father passes away just as the palmist predicted. He also correctly predicts that a train he just exited will collide, killing everyone on board.

Doctor Prerna (Pooja Hedge) and palmist Vikramaditya alias Aditya (Prabhas) have opposing beliefs. One believes in fate, destiny, and that everything is written, while the other prefers to live by scientific and logical norms. But their love defies rationality, which is where Radhe Shyam stumbles.

Radhe Shyam may have been forgiven for attempting to experiment, however unsuccessful it may have been at it, if it had kept to the new notion it began with and created something engaging out of it. It just didn’t work as a period romance. Don’t even think about why the title was Radhe Shyam; I couldn’t see any logic in it.

Aditya falls in love with Prerna despite his best efforts to avoid a’relationship’ and stick to a ‘flirtationship’ because he’s convinced he doesn’t have a love line in his palm. As much as he wishes for a long life with her, fate has other plans for them.

Radhe Shyam is magnificently decked out with old world elegance, giving it a fantasy touch. It is set in 1970s Europe with immaculate and breathtaking surroundings. Manoj Paramahamsa, the cinematographer, has captured the beautiful locations and alleys of Italy and Georgia in the most lavish way possible. Each scene is a visual spectacular that captivates you with its setting. Even the main characters’ homes and bedrooms are opulent. The picture is shot on such a large scale, with top-notch visual effects. I only wish that the same level of attention to detail was paid to the writing, because a well-presented dish is worthless if it doesn’t taste as delicious.

Radhe Shyam’s writing is weak and unimpressive. You want to believe in the events as they occur, but they seem too immature at times, and things don’t match up. The character journeys of Prabhas and Pooja required a lot more depth and subtlety. We still don’t know anything about Aditya’s past, his rise to popularity as a palmist, or his family relationships after 140 minutes.

His best friend (Kunal Roy Kapoor) also lives with him, but we know nothing about him. In her limited screen time, Bhagyashree as his onscreen mother is kind, but she doesn’t bring much to the tale. Prerna, on the other hand, has a large family — a father, mother, sister, and grandmother — but we only get to see them in a few moments with her ‘chachu’ (Sachin Khedekar).

Among the overseas centres, Radhe Shyam did well at the US box office where it minted Rs 13.8 crore with a distributors’ share of Rs 6.9 crore in the three-day first weekend”.

As of 14 March 2022, the film had a total worldwide gross of ₹165.18 crore. The film is a big disaster at the box office as the film netted ₹99.50 crore from 4 days in India and it is even difficult for the film to reach even ₹125 crore”

“Prabhas’ latest film has turned out to be one of the biggest disasters of all time at the box office with losses over Rs 100 crore, a first for any Indian film”.

The makers claimed that the film grossed ₹200 crore at the box office in 10 days, however, “The other estimates put the film’s worldwide collection so far well below the Rs 150 crore mark.”

The Hindi version of the film netted only ₹9−9.5 crore in 2 days which is very low compared to Saaho and reports suggest that film became a huge flop at the Hindi box office. The film had a poor weekend with just ₹14 crore (nett) in the first three days.[50] The film had a huge dip in its collections on its first Monday with ₹1.5 crore (nett).

Review

Prabhas’ performance as the palmist is a little uncomfortable at times, but he has worked hard on his Hindi diction since Saaho three years ago. In other instances, he’s stunning, and he’s just the prince charming you’d want to see on TV. Through his expressions in scenes that require it, he achieves a superb balance of severity and tenderness. Pooja gives a good performance. She handles the dramatic scenes with poise and conviction. Having said that, the film’s performances are let down by its terrible screenplay.

Given that Radhe Shyam is billed as a music love drama, it performs admirably. Applause for Mithoon and Manan Bhardwaj’s Hindi soundtrack. The songs and background music are well-matched to the situations and plot. The songs are beautifully illustrated and peaceful to see.

To summarise, Radhe Shyam is a mediocre film, and while the story may disappoint you, the attractive Prabhas might just persuade you to watch it. There’s a scene that will transport you back to the Titanic, but don’t think too hard about it, because the Hollywood film didn’t trade logic for emotion.
