Samrat Prithviraj was released worldwide on 3 June 2022 Samrat Prithviraj is a flop
movie at the box office. It is the second flop movie of Akshay Kumar after Bachchan
Pandey. Its box office collection is ₹87 crores meanwhile the budget of the movie was
₹200 crores, is not even close to recovering the amount of the budget. Here are the
reasons why Prithviraj fails at the box office:
- Irrelevant Story / Fact.
According to the historic facts, Prithviraj Chauhan was killed at the age of 26. In the
second battle of Tarain in 1192, he was beheaded by Mohammad Ghori. After 14 years,
Mohammad Ghori was killed in 1206 when he was on the way to Ghazni. In the movie,
a fictional story was represented. History was twisted to show him a great and brave
king undoubtedly he was, but the truth was not revealed about his death. It was fictional.
- Poor Casting.
As Akshay Kumar was playing the role of Prithviraj Chauhan aged 26. He was not a
good fit for this role. Though Akshay Kumar has been a good actor till yet the
energy, power, and action which was required for the role were not up to mark. The role of
Prithviraj was weak. For this kind of role, Young actors should get opportunities who are
enthusiastic and great at expressions.
The movie is about 135 minutes which seems to be long and uninteresting. Even
though it was a little bit of a fictional movie it still did not seem so interesting and not
filled the audience with any excitement. It was lacking behind to engage the audience
with the movie.
- Lack Of Hit Music.
The movie does not have any hit music like it is supposed to. Music is the second
important thing in the movie despite the story. Like Jodha Akbar, Bajirao Mastani, and
so on historical drama movies have catchy and hit music. Samrat Prithviraj lacks hit
music as well.
- Lack of Promotional Activities.
The promotion of Samrat Prithviraj was done in a very limited manner. The promotion of a
film is more important to earn crores and make it a hit at the box office. They didn’t
interview much with the media or digital media to promote their film and make the
audience interested or attracted to the movie. They did fewer interviews for the
movie. Maybe they were expecting that the audience would already be excited about
- Poor Performance.
Performance is very important for a hit movie. Well, the power, action, and energy, required
for the main role were not enough. There were no such strong expressions and no
enthusiasm among them during the playing roles which was leading to boredom,
uninterest, and no excitement in the movie.
Bollywood movies are not making many attractive movies. South movies are doing
better than them. South movies are doing great at action, dramas, and even at
comedy too. So, these were the reasons why Samrat Prithviraj failed at the box office.
