Day 2: Sidharth Malhotra’s ‘Baar Baar Dekho’ beats Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s ‘Freaky Ali’ big time
Sidharth Malhotra and Katrina Kaif starrer ‘Baar Baar Dekho‘ clashed with Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Amy Jackson‘s ‘Freaky Ali‘ this Friday and well, the former film with two big stars seems to have an upper hand at the box office. ‘Baar Baar Dekho’ directed by Nitya Mehra has managed to mind approximately Rs 14.25 crore at the box office in two days while ‘Freaky Ali’ directed by Sohail Khan has accumulated approximately Rs 4.25 Crore in two days.
It seems the star power of two big celebrities and an aggressive promotional tactic has worked in favour of ‘Baar Baar Dekho’. The film received mixed response from the critics and the audience. On the contrary, ‘Freaky Ali’ has just garnered praises. Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s performance in the film is the major highlight of ‘Freaky Ali’. Even though the box office collection of ‘Freaky Ali’ was better than its first day collection, the movie could not match up to ‘Baar Baar Dekho’s collection.
Let’s wait and watch for further statistics. With Monday being a Holiday, both the films have an advantage of enjoying a long weekend. We hope both the films make some profit.
