According to a report by Sacnilk the film has only been able to make a total of an estimated Rs 6.55 crore after the second day since its release. On the first day of its release, the movie made 3 crores.
‘Lal Salaam’ tells the story of how politics and cricket meet in a village, showing how an iconic sport in India gets mixed up with complex issues in society. Thiru is played by Vishnu Vishal, Vikranth plays Shamsuddin, and Rajinikanth’s character Moideen Bhai.The film did not connect with audiences as expected, even though there were extensive marketing efforts that extensively emphasised Rajinikanth’s involvement, especially his portrayal of Moideen Bhai. ‘Lal Salaam’ promotional strategy addressed challenging topics like caste oppression and religious discrimination while showcasing the combination of political issues and sports drama. It seems, nonetheless, that these components failed to turn into the anticipated box office success.
The movie also failed to leave a mark in the Telugu region as reports also suggested that the opening shows for the Telugu dub of the movie in the Telugu region got cancelled due to a low turnout of the audience at the theatres and the audience was given the refund. One might look at ‘Lal Salaam’s failure to connect with audiences despite its brilliant cast and bold ideas.

The film’s poor box office success shows the unpredictable nature of viewer choices and the difficulties in striking a balance between themes that are socially meaningful and entertaining. Fans are curious about the film’s ultimate reaction as the film continues its theatrical run, as its fate is still up in the air.
