The Kalki Koechlin starrer film called Margarita With A Straw was one of the movies hitting last Friday at the theatres. The film is a niche based movie, which was seen with a start having limited and interested crowd catching up the film. The movie which showcases the struggle of a girl suffering from a menace called cerebral palsy struggling to find her sexual desires failed to attract good amount of audience film for the obvious reason. The movie had opened up with a figure of 50 lakhs on the very first day, which witnessed some amount of surge in the coming two days.
Thus the story for the film went like this for its first weekend collection 72 lakhs on the Saturday and 90 lakhs on the Sunday. Thus the total collection of Margarita With A Straw tolled to around 2.12 crores over the box office. The movie released the same day –Mr. X starring Emraan Hashmi too witnessed a dull start, however, it was much better than this giving a competition to the same. Even the movies released like Ek Paheli Leela too came in its way.
Since it had a storyline with a little niche, Margarita With A Straw simply failed to become a crowd puller. This film attracted people only in a highly urban-centric audience thus you can find better response from cities like Mumbai, Pune, Kolkata etc. It is all about a young girl who has the proble of Cerebral Palsy and her journey to discover herself.
