‘Sanam Re’ performs far better than ‘Fitoor’
Divya Khosla Kumar’s directorial last week released romantic drama film, Sanam Re has completed the opening week on an average note but recovered its production cost. Because of its sensational music, this film had good pre-release hype among audience but received mixed reviews from critics, which settled down all its hype so early and it had to satisfy with average business total. Despite of getting not much positive reviews as well as business, Sanam Re is buzzing around and has some hold over audience in second week too.
The reason is, it has dominated the opposite release highly star powered film of same genre Fitoor. Katrina Kaif and Aditya Roy Kapoor starrer this film had much pre-release hype but due to its slow storyline, received failure in entertaining audience. The indirect benefit of its failure was enjoyed by adjacent release Sanam Re and existing one Ghayal Once Again.
In the opening week, Fitoor had witnessed dull response and minted the amount of only 18.61 crores at domestic box office, that includes 14.11 crores of weekend and 4.5o crores of weekdays. Whereas Sanam Re had witnessed higher response and raked the business of 25.82 crores, that includes 17.05 crores of weekend and 8.77 crores of weekdays. The Abhishek Kapoor’s directorial Fitoor has not performed well in India but reported impressive business of 15.05 crores from overseas.
Now in the second week, Fitoor is getting more lesser response and added the amounts of 0.42 crore* on Friday and 0.53 crore* on Saturday. The parallel one Sanam Re has collected the business figures of 1.03 crore on Friday and 1.38 crore* on Saturday. On the last day of weekend, both started with almost similar response as yesterday and likely to gross around 0.60 crore* and 1.50 crore* respectively as their 10th day collections.
