‘Fitoor’ & ‘Sanam Re’ Enters in Second Weekend
Last week released two romantic films, Katrina Kaif-Aditya Roy Kapoor starrer ‘Fitoor’ and Pulkit Samrat-Yami Gautam starrer ‘Sanam Re’ have completed their opening week on an average note. Both the films had good initial buzz among audience but has not received much positive reviews from critics and audience as well. Being a well star-casted, Fitoor was expected to take box office by storm after release but it performed very low and lagged by the less star powered Sanam Re.
As per critics, Fitoor is a classy film with sizzling chemistry between Katrina and Aditya but due to its slow story line, the entertainment factor doesn’t appear. Whereas Sanam Re which had made good hype of it among audience because of its beautiful music, also received mixed reviews from critics due to ineffective script and loose direction. But still it has grossed higher numbers than Fitoor, screen count might be the reason of it.
In the opening week, Sanam Re minted the average business total of 25.82 crores, that includes 17.05 crores of weekend and 8.77 crores of weekdays. On the other hand Fitoor has raked total 18.61 crores, that includes 14.11 crores of weekend and 4.50 crores* of weekdays. Now these have entered in the second week and started facing heavy competition due to new releases like Neerja, LoveShhuda etc.
On Friday, Fitoor and Sanam Re faced considerable drops and added the amounts of 0.42 crore* and 1.03 crore respectively as their 8th day collection at domestic box office.
