Last Friday, we had two films releasing in the B Town, which also include Genius apart from the sequel – Happy Phir Bhag Jayegi. Both the film turned average over the box office, but if you talk about Genius, it has been incredibly bad over the box office. The film had the lead actors coming in the form of lead roles but they failed to impress the audience and critics as well, which hampered the box office collection in a big way. The film started with a meager collection on the first day, which continued in the similar pace keeping the collection a bit high. Now, let’s see how things would move in the coming days, but talking about the weekend collection, it has been really bad for the film.
The film Genius had Utkarsh Sharma and Nawazuddin Siddiqui in the lead role with the former being the debutant, while the latter seemed to be in negative role. It was obvious to see how things had gone for the film with the collection reaching to a very bad figure. The film started its first day collection with around 75 lakhs, while the second day went close to 1 crore, and similar was the story on the first Sunday as well, with the collection reaching to around 1.2 crore. Hence as per reports, the 1st weekend box office collection reached to around 2.75 crore.
And on the other side, the movie Happy Phir Bhag Jayegi did a decent job by collection around 13 crore. So, the overall picture at the box office for this film has been lukewarm and it has managed to gain a decent manner. The movie gave the debut to the director’s son, who has been known for giving films like Gadar: Ek Prem Katha, which has Ishita Chauhan, Ayesha Jhulka and Mithun Chakraborty in the lead roles. So, at this moment, the film is likely to do better over the box office for many reasons. Also, the other films released last Friday called Gold and Satyamev Jayate, have been doing well over the box office, which was also one of the key reasons of Genius being disturbed.
