Laal Kaptaan, which released last Friday, has been unsuccessful in pulling people to theatres despite Saif Ali Khan playing an intriguing role of a Naga Sadhu. The film saw a clash with Angelina Jolie’s Maleficent: Mistress of Evil which reportedly opened up at higher numbers.
The Saif Ali Khan-starrer is directed by Navdeep Singh, who has NH10 to his credit. The film also stars Manav Vij, Zoya Hussain, Deepak Dobriyal and Sonakshi Sinha in important roles.
Lal Kaptaan made Rs 50 lakh on its opening day. According to reports, its earnings may increase in the coming days but the film might still not be able to score big in terms of numbers at the Box Office.
The IANS reviewed the film as, "Laal Kaptaan' is a film gone wrong. It stumps you, not because it is yet another new-age Bollywood effort that tries being different and ends up a misadventure, but because you notice the director's name in the credits is Navdeep Singh. Isn't this the same man who made the absolutely thrilling "NH10" a while back, and the simply outstanding "Manorama Six Feet Under" before this?"
