Day 1: ‘Qarib Qarib Singlle’ races ahead of ‘Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana’ at the BO

Qarib Qarib Singlle

This Friday we had quite a few films making it to the theatres. Irrfan Khan and Parvathy-starrer ‘Qarib Qarib Singlle’ clashed with Rajkummar Rao and Kriti Kharbanda-starrer ‘Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana’. Both the films dealt in romantic genres and garnered rave reviews from the critics. But unfortunately, they have failed to make it big at the box office.

On day 1, ‘Qarib Qarib Singlle’ managed to rake in approximately Rs 1.65-1.75 crore nett at the box office while ‘Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana’ minted only Rs 60-65 lakh nett. Even though ‘Qarib Qarib Singlle’ is racing ahead of the other film, the collections are not as good as expected.

Apart from these two, another film that released this Friday was South star Siddharth’s horror-thriller ‘The House Next Door’. It managed to get good reviews from the critics, but it looks like it failed to make money at the box office.

Let’s wait and watch, what the weekends hold for these films. Thanks to positive word of mouth for ‘Qarib Qarib Singlle’, we are expecting the collections to be good.

'Black Panther' overpowers 'Aiyaary' in the first weekend, as the latter disappoints

Neeraj Pandey’s thriller ‘Aiyaary’ starring Sidharth Malhotra and Manoj Bajpayee in the lead roles has registered a poor business in its first weekend.

The movie did a business of Rs 4.25 crore nett on Sunday which is exactly the same as its Saturday business and the three day total business is Rs 11.75 crore nett which is a disappointment. Even, Sidharth’s earlier outing ‘Ittefaq’ which was made at half the budget of this movie had done a better business of Rs 14.82 crore nett in its first weekend.

The American superhero flick ‘Black Panther’ which released on the same day as ‘Aiyaary’ has overpowered the latter and has done a decent business of Rs 18.75 crore nett over the weekend. Even though the numbers aren’t great, they are much better than ‘Aiyaary’.

Coming back to the crime thriller, the start hasn’t been a good one and considering the foreign locales and the star cast, the budget of the movie is surely above Rs 30 crore nett. So, if you take the budget into consideration, the collections are quite low and the movie needs a huge boost in the weekdays to earn any profit whatsoever.  (Also Read: Aiyaary movie review: The men in army fail to shine through the muddled up plot)

'Black Panther' eats 'Aiyaary' on the first day at the box office

The third week of February saw two releases. One was Bollywood film ‘Aiyaary’ which stars Sidharth Malhotra, Rakul Preet, Manoj Bajpayee and Pooja Chopra in the lead whereas the other one is Hollywood film ‘Black Panther’.

‘Aiyaary’ was earlier slated to release in the Republic week but postponed it’s release because director Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmaavat’ finally managed to release. Even Akshay Kumar-starrer ‘PadMan’ postponed it’s release.

Talking about the first-day collection of the Neeraj Pandey directed patriotic thriller, the film managed to collect 3-3.25 crore nett at the box office.

 

The ‘Black Panther’ managed to collect 5-5.25 crore nett at the box office. Reportedly, the Hollywood film only had 55% of the Bollywood film’s screen space but still managed to collect numbers. (Also Read: Aiyaary: Sidharth Malhotra, Manoj Bajpayee’s film banned in Pakistan)

Next week two Bollywood films namely ‘Welcome to New York’ and ‘Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety’ are slated to release and looks like ‘Aiyaary’ doesn’t stand chance to make up in the second week also.
