The film that witnessed a slow start at the box-office, is slogging for business.

By Prachi Arya: Kajol’s Salaam Venky, which hit the theatres on December 9, could not meet the expectations of the moviegoers with its plotline. The film is directed by Revathy, which saw a poor start at the box office, and could not earn good business. The film stars Kajol in the lead and talks about a serious problem called Duchenne muscular dystrophy.


Salaam Venky features Kajol who plays a mother to a 24-year-old son who is suffering from Duchenne muscular dystrophy. The film, which failed to resonate with moviegoers, earned Rs 0.7 Crore at the box office on Day 2. Hence, taking the total tally of business to Rs 1.3 crores. Salaam Vdenky is receiving tough competition from other major releases, including Drishyam 2, Bhediya, An Action Hero, and many more. However, the best part about the movie’s release is that it is doing far better than the other two releases, Vadh and Marrich, at the box office. It will be interesting to see how the film fairs over the first weekend despite the cutthroat competition.


Salaam Venky is bankrolled by Suraj Singh and Shraddha Agrawal. As far as the music is concerned, it is composed of Mithoon. The film also stars Prakash Raj, Rajeev Khandelwal, and Rahul Bose. Aamir Khan has a special cameo in the film. Salaam Venky is a wonderfully made dark movie despite not hitting the right notes on all fronts. Based on the novel The Last Hurrah by Shrikant Murthy, the film touches upon the grave subject of euthanasia, which, in simple terms, means the act of deliberately ending a person’s life to end their suffering.
