This week’s big release Ferrari Ki Sawaari helmed by Vidhu Vinod Chopra was a huge disappointment, while the other two films, Qasam Se Qasam Se and Chakradhaar, were total washouts. But there was good news – Prabhudheva’s Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha starrer Rowdy Rathore created waves by crossing the magical Rs 100-crore mark in its second week. And the film is still doing brisk business.
In Mumbai, Rajesh Thadani of Multimedia Combines says, “The opening of Ferrari Ki Sawaari (FKS) was 15 to 20 per cent pan-India but I think business will pick up at the weekend. The movie has a good storyline and the audience is appreciative. The film is aimed at children. The other two releases Qasam Se Qasam Se and Chakradhaar had no opening at all.”
GD Mehta of Bobby Arts International adds,” In Delhi, the opening of all three releases was very poor. Across Delhi, collections were merely 40 per cent for FKS. There is very little scope for the film to work as it’s a children’s film whereas the big target audience today is the youth. The other two films took no opening.”
In CP, Sarang Chandak of Shri Rang Films says, “The opening of FKS was 8 to 10 per cent in our region. I am not sure whether the film will do well at the weekend either. Shows of the other two releases had to be cancelled as there were no takers.”
But Sanjay Marudhar of Marudhar Enterprises in CI is optimistic, “FKS is a very good movie as it’s a family film. The response is very good, everyone is liking the film. I am sure the film will be a hit among children.”
In Orissa, Jeetu Khandelwal of Movie Pioneers is confident of Ferrari Ki Sawaari doing good business. “Though FKS didn’t open to a great response, morning collections were 30 per cent in Orissa. Also, today is a holiday here so the film will do good business during the day. I have heard that the film is very good.”
In Gujarat, Ajay Bagbai of Rajvi Trade Link adds, “FKS took an opening of 15 per cent, which is not good as we were expecting a grand opening since it is a Vidhu Vinod Chopra movie. But the audience seems to have liked the film so it may pick up during the weekend.”
