The director who have given hits like No Entry, Welcome & Singh Is Kinng, Anees Bazmee is back with another film, titled Mubarakan. Young-at-60 Anil Kapoor, Arjun Kapoor, Ileana D’cruz and Athiya Shetty starrer this romantic comedy drama is all set to hit theaters this Friday on July 28.
Since the time of announcement, Mubarakan is buzzing among fans as well as audience. Also it’s official trailer, Punjabi-tadka music and wide scale promotions have created good pre-release hype of the film.
After a good time gap, audience will have clean Hindi comedy film to watch this coming weekend, as CBFC has cleared Mubarakan without any cut under U/A category. It will be very exciting for fans to see the chemistry of Chacha-Bhatija aka Anil Kapoor & Arjun Kapoor on silver screen.
Advance booking for Mubarakan has been started on a full-fledged note in India from Wednesday and as per the report from exhibitors, Arjun’s new offering seems capable to break the dry spell of box office. Being a family drama, it attracts major segment of audience, which is a plus point.
Although the career of Arjun Kapoor is not flying like Ranveer Singh & Varun Dhawan, also his last film Half Girlfriend didn’t receive expected response at box office, but Mubarakan can be listed among his top 3 highest grossing films so far.
Digging further in previous records then, Anees Bazmee’s last venture 2015’s Welcome Back which also had Anil Kapoor in a pivotal role, did the opening of 14.35 crores from approx. 3200 screens. But that had the already-generated hype because of successful 2007’s Welcome.
Considering all the facts and it’s pre release hype, Mubarakan is expected to receive atleast decent response on single as well as multi screen cinemas across the country. Under such conditions, it won’t be difficult for the film to take decent opening of 8.50 – 9.50 crores and will rise over the weekend if it gets favorable reactions.
Produced by Cine 1 Studios and Sony Pictures Networks Productions, Mubarakan is not releasing solo this Friday. Madhur Bhandarkar’s Indu Sarkar and Tigmanshu Dhulia’s Raag Desh are also being released on July 28, but they will perform only if critics as well as viewers react in their favor.
