Day 1 box office haul for 12th Fail: The film, starring Vikrant Massey, debuted in theaters on Friday, alongside Kangana Ranaut’s aerial action flick Tejas. According to early estimates given by Sacnilk.com, the 12th Fail opened at 1.1 crore nett. On Friday, the picture had a 9.09 percent Hindi occupancy and a 6.5 percent Kannada occupancy, according to the portal.
The film is based on Anurag Pathak’s novel about IPS officer Manoj Kumar Sharma and IRS officer Shraddha Joshi’s journey. The primary actors in the film are Vikrant Massey and Medha Shankar. Vidhu Vinod Chopra directed the film.
According to the AM assessment of the film, Vikrant Massey’s strongest performance was in 12th Fail. “Massey takes the cake for delivering a brilliant performance, easily his best so far,” it said. He adds a variety of nuances to his character at every level. He is naïve to the concept that cheating is immoral as a teenager in school. As a struggling UPSC student, he is full of guts and desire, and he is willing to sleep three hours every night to guarantee he has enough time to study and perform tiny jobs for sustenance. Massey embraces Manoj’s role in all areas that you’d anticipate and executes it to the letter, leaving no room for criticism.”

“The film is not just about the Hindi language,” Vikrant said of the film, “but the film mainly talks about restarting life and its struggle.” Many people believe that if they fail in school, they will fail in life. That does not sit well with me. Yes, education is a route to a better life, but academic accomplishment alone does not constitute success. If you have failed, you may try again and attain your goal.”
In a comment about the film, Vidhu Vinod Chopra said, “In today’s times, I wanted to tell a story of hope, of never giving up.” The 12th Fail is all of this and more. I laughed, sobbed, sang along, and had a great time producing this film. “I truly believe that when this film hits theaters, it will strike a universal chord.”
