why-cheat-india-1st weekend box office collection

The B Town had a couple of movies to release the passing Friday, which also includes Why Cheat India. The film, however, has a shocking performance and was able to collect only 1.71 Crores on the first day despite having good reviews for the film by most of the critics. Also, it had barely any threat from any other movie coming along with the rival movies like the Arshad Warsi movie Rangeela Raja and the Radhika Apte starrer movie Bombariya, yet the B Town audience has rudely rejected the film giving a minimal figure at the box office. Ironically the film continued its pace with similar figures on the second day as well.

The reports suggested that the film scored 1.5 Crores on the first Saturday, and on Sunday, the weekly holiday had just a bit of hike in its collection reaching to around 2.2 crores. So, the first-weekend box office collection for Why Cheat India scored 5.41 Crores, which is simply bad box office report for any film with such a potent issue. The film is based on the corruption found in the educational system and thus opened the can of worms before the Indian people. But as we know the Bollywood movie fans barely want serious movies to catch. All they like is the masala movie with high star value that can make them entertained.

Sadly the collection would not be going to rise in the coming days during the weekdays as the issue covered in the film is hard to sell. No one likes to catch the serious content film on the screens. Hence to do well at the box office all you need is to try things hard in a different way of keeping the masala element thick and plenty. Emraan Hashmi who has an image of a serial kisser seems to be trying to get rid of the same, but every time he tries something different he is taken for a ride. Anyway, it was a bad weekend for the makers of Why Cheat India, perhaps they now have to try something different in the coming days. Stay tuned to know more about it and others only with us.

Celebrities, too, are giving rave reviews.

Most recent being Shilpa Shetty, who, after the film’s screening on Tuesday night, called it “ Mindblowing” and “Hard hai Bhai”.

Kal Ho Na Ho director, Nikkhil Advani, took to Twitter to praise the film.

“In 2001 @excelmovies gave a film that would define the language of cinema for my generation. Today I sat and watched my 12yr old applaud and sit wide eyed watching a film that will define hers. #GullyBoy #BahotHard @ZoyaAkhtarOff @kagtireema @ritesh_sid @FarOutAkhtar,” he wrote

Karan Johar shared on Instagram his feelings after watching the film.

“When passion supersedes grass root realities…when dreams make you wake up to bigger dreams….when you wrap rap into a form of solid expression….when you tell a story that has all this and more….that’s when you have a film that you can assuredly call a MASTERPIECE of modern times! @zoieakhtar weaves a story of aspirations in the underbelly of Mumbai like a bonafide magician….she slowly reveals every trick in her genius bag and you walk away with a lump in your throat and a swag in your step! #apnatimeaayega becomes your life mantra and all you want to do is dance the dance of great Cinema! I have just witnessed a cult classic that has possibly the best ensemble of actors we have seen this decade… @ranveersingh delivers the loudest quiet performance oscillating between silence and storm and you are left awestruck by his immense versatility and ability to sink his teeth into every single character….he makes you feel every beat of Murad’s beats! Outstanding!! What do I say about the girl wonder @aliaabhatt who explodes like a volcano every time she appears on screen! You wait for her and worry about her next move with joy and excitement!! She is so so so brilliant! I think Safeena deserves a spin-off film of her own! @siddhantchaturvedi makes a smashing debut as MC sher ! He is pitch-perfect balancing arrogance and goodness with the ease of a veteran! Every member of the ensemble is terrific! Congratulations to my friends @ritesh_sid and @faroutakhtar for producing this gem of a movie! And finally my dearest Zoya……you are my favourite filmmaker and I feel so proud that I can witness your genius unravel at close quarters!! Well done team #gullyboy the entire technical crew needs a standing ovation!!!! What a film!!!!!!”

The film -Ek Ladki ko Dekhha To Aisa Laga seemed to have a decent collection on the first weekend. With a meagre collection on day one of 3.30 crores, the Sonam Kapoor starrer film took a modest surge in the next two days. The Saturday witnessed 4.6 Cr. And Sunday just went the double with collection reaching out to 8.6 crazy. All thanks to the good word of mouth buzz found for the film that helped the film to prosper.

Which is a decent amount for the makers as they knew it would be difficult to attract a good chunk of people towards the film. The film had however scored good reviews by most of the critics, and it helped again to garner some amount of buzz for the film. Also, the makers were able with light content did the rest. Let’s not forget about the ensemble star cast Anil Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor, Rajkumar Rao and Juhi Chawla that has to be counted as well.

ek-ladki-ko-dekha-toh-aisa-laga-1st day box office

For the much hyped and promoted film having the daughter and father duo Sonam Kapoor and Anil Kapoor working for the first time in any B Town, it is indeed not a piece of good news when we look at the collections of the film of the first day. In fact, most of the trade experts and pundits were seen saying in a chorus that the film will not attract the masses as it deals with same-sex relationship making it a niche movie. So, if you check the occupancy in the morning shows, it was not more than 10 per cent. The afternoon and evening shows did witness some amount of escalation in terms of occupancy, the film really failed to move beyond 45 to 50 per cent.

The reviews also were mixed and the only a section of the masses was attracted towards it making it a selective film. Though the taboo subject was dealt with fun and drama, the core idea of the film did not attract anyone. Only the urbane crowd will be attracted therefore the film did well in metro cities like Mumbai, Gurgaon, Bangalore and Delhi particularly the multiplexes. The single screens did not show any good response hence the makers did not target the single screens. So, as per the reports, the first-day box office collection for Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga went to 4.55 Crore which was the expected figure by the experts.

However, the makers had great hopes for the film since they thought they had reduced the weight of the film making it a light comedy hence were expecting a higher collection. The experts feel that if the film is able to develop a decent word of mouth buzz in the media, it will certainly going to make all the difference. Let’s wait and watch. But the moment things are not in the favour of Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga. Let’s not forget that the audience has still better options like Uri The Surgical Strike and the Kangana Ranaut starrer historical movie to watch that also did the rest of the damage. Yet the first weekend collection for Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga will rise making it close to 20 Crores.
