This week’s release Ferrari Ki Sawaari (FKS), produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra, disappointed big time, while the other two films, Qasam Se Qasam Se and Chakradhaar, also failed to impress. FKS opened to a weak response and through the day, collections did not improve.
In Mumbai, Rajesh Thadani of Multimedia Combines says, “There was only a little improvement in collections of the film since the morning. Business from all over India and Mumbai is about 25-30 per cent. If the film doesn’t pick up by tomorrow, there will be no hope as the movie has received mixed reviews.”
In Delhi, G D Mehta of Bobby Arts International adds, “FKS is the only release this week which has managed to draw the audience. During the afternoon show, collections went up to 40 per cent. Kids love the film but I am not sure the film will do really well at the box office.”
In Punjab, Surendra Saluja of Lakshya Movies says the performance of FKS is “average”. “We had high hopes from the Vidhu Vinod Chopra film but it didn’t live up to the hype. The audience hasn’t liked the film too much.”
According to Vasudev Chachan of Sunny Films that in Rajasthan, FKS is an utter flop. Its opening was barely 5 per cent.
In CI, Manoj Jain of Neha Movies says shows of Qasam Se Qasam Se and Chakradhaar were cancelled as no one turned up to watch these films. “The first-day collections of FKS are 10 per cent, and I doubt it will pick up during the weekend. The poor show this week will only boost the collections of the already successful Rowdy Rathore.”
In Mysore, B H Basha of Bahar Enterprises concludes, “The business of Ferrari… has improved since morning. While the film opened to around 25-30 per cent, collections are now 50-60 per cent. Since this is a family entertainer, the film will do average business. The other two films took a nil opening.”
