Ranchi Diaires, directed by Sattwik Kohli and staring Himansh Kohli, Soundarya Sharma, Anupam Kher and Jimmy Shergill seems to have failed to impress the audiences, as it only took a meagre 1.50 crore at the B.O. The numbers aren’t actually drastic, as the movie isn’t that highly budgeted but since Judwa became a monster hit, other moives have been suffering to collect money because people are just going to see Judwa and aren’t recommending other movies to their family and friends. Next week, Golmaal and Secret superstar arrive, and the occasion is Diwali, so people would be more hyped for those movies, forgetting this one instantly.
Ranchi Diaries is a story of Gudiya (Soundarya Sharma) who aspires to be a singer and how, after a kidnapping goes wrong, she and her friends decide to rob a bank. Jimmy Shergill plays the cop investigating the case, and Anupam Kher is a policitian.
The movie has gotten middling review, though they’re not as bad as some other movies releasing this week, but the lack of buzz and proper promotion and the fact that no big actor stars in the movie seems to have hurts its chances to gain hype in the social media circles and elsewhere.
