The film opened had a dull start on its opening day and raked a collection of Rs 3.52 crore. However, the trade pundits predicting the fate of the film said that the movie will grow with a positive word-of-mouth and is thus expected to rake a good amount in the weekend.
Film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh revealed the box-office figures on his social media account. the slow start of the film, he wrote, “#Manmarziyaan has a low Day 1… Started on a dull note in the morning, but picked up towards evening… North circuits were better… Biz will scale upwards on Sat and Sun [a norm these days], but real test will be on weekdays… Fri ₹ 3.52 cr. India biz.”
As per the trade analyst Girish Johar what has made Manmarziyaan a must-watch film is its music which is composed by Amit Trivedi and its strong star cast. During his interaction with a leading news portal, “Girish Johar said that the movie has created the right amount of buzz among cinephiles and people are excited to see Junior Bachchan back on the screen after a gap of two years.”
While Shubhra Gupta, a film critic of Indian Express stated, “Taapsee Pannu stands out, trying to work past the clichéd role. This is the first time the excellent Vicky Kaushal is not able to make the character his own: fresh off Sanju, this is a disappointment. And Bachchan’s Robbie, fashioned as an antidote to the mercurial Rumi, reminds you so strongly of Ajay Devgn’s part in Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam that it’s hard to separate them.”
So, let’s see how Manmarziyaan performs in the coming days. The film is directed by Anurag Kashyap.
