Fitoor was buzzing around from a long time among audience but after release, received mixed reviews from critics as well as audience. Everyone appreciating the sizzling chemistry between both the stars but due to movie’s slow story line, it get failed to satisfy viewers.
As a result, adjacent release Yami Gautam and Pulkit Samrat starrer ‘Sanam Re’ is getting higher response and leading over Fitoor. Sanam Re has beautiful tracks which had created good pre-release hype of it among audience and also attracting them towards theater. Due to ineffective script and direction, Divya Khosla Kumar’s directorial this movie is also not getting positive reviews from critics but comparatively performing higher than Fitoor at box office.
In the opening weekend, Sanam Re has witnessed the overall occupancy of 35-45% across the country and minted the business of 17.05 crores, whereas Fitoor raked 14.11 crores with 25-35% occupancy. Both the movies are now running in weekdays and being normal working days reporting low foot-fall.
