The fourth installment of popular Indian erotic thriller franchise Hate Story titled Hate Story 4 got released at the box office this Friday along with a couple of more noticeable movies- Dil Juunglee and 3 Storeys. As expected, due to the good recall value it opened on a higher note than the rest.
Directed by Vishal Pandya, Hate Story 4 stars Urvashi Rautela in a leading role, who has worked in few movies so far but still has a high stardom. Her boldness is one of the major reasons, that is attracting the targeted audience toward the theaters, otherwise, critics have given mixed reviews for it.
On the first day, HS4 opened on an average note and managed to collect the opening business of 3.76 crores, which is lower than Hate Story 3 and even Hate Story 2. Then on Saturday with a limited growth, the movie raked the business of 4.19 crores and raised its 2 days domestic collection to 7.95 crores.
While another release of this week Taapsee Pannu and Saqib Saleem starrer romantic comedy Dil Juunglee as well has received mixed reviews from the critics. Also, it is struggling to get the audience and registered the business of only 0.35 crore on Friday, which is much lower than the earlier expectations.
On Saturday as well, it remained almost flat and minted the amount of 0.30 crore. With this, the total collection of Dil Juunglee after 2 days, has become 0.65 crore at the domestic box office from limited screens.
On the other hand, Pulkit Samrat, Sharman Joshi and Richa Chadha starrer thriller drama 3 Storeys has received mostly positive reviews but still witnessing low footfalls. It did the business of 0.35 crore on Friday and 0.60 crore on Saturday with fair growth.
