Saturday Report of ‘Fitoor’ and ‘Sanam Re’
Two romantic films Fitoor and Sanam Re released this Friday with good buzz among audience. But both get failed to satisfy critics and received mixed reviews from them. Audience showing bit interest but that can not be consider as impressive. The highly star powered Fitoor which was expected to get overwhelmed response after release, witnessed lesser occupancy than Sanam Re on the opening day. As per critics, Fitoor has intense story but very slow to tolerate. On the other hand, Sanam Re has beautiful music but less effective script and loose direction makes it skip-able.
Abhishek Kapoor’s directorial Fitoor features one of the most popular actresses Katrina Kaif and Aditya Roy Kapoor. The film has been released on 1225 screens across the country and witnessed 25-30% of occupancy. It has raked the business of only 3.61 crores on its first day. Fans of Katrina are showing huge craze towards her latest film and creating buzz on social media. As a result on Saturday, Fitoor received little better than yesterday and minted the amount of 4.54 crores as its second day collection. Till the end of the day, total collection of the film is recorded as 8.15 crores. To reach a reputed mark in weekend, Fitoor has to do much better on Sunday.
The opposite one, Divya Khosla Kumar’s directorial Sanam Re features Pulkit Samrat, Yami Gautam and Urvashi Rautela in lead roles. The film has released this Friday on 2000+ screens across the country and received decent response at box office. There is no much hyped star in Sanam Re, but still it witnessed higher occupancy of 35-40% than Fitoor. It did the business of 5.04 crores as its opening day collection. On Saturday being partial holiday and ofcourse the positive buzz generated on day 1, this film has received slightly well and raked 5.56 crores. Till the end of its 2nd day, total collection of Sanam Re is recorded as 10.60 crores.
Both the films are facing negative reactions of critics as well as some viewers, which is resulting in benefit for existing ones like Ghayal Once Again and Airlift. The adjacent Hollywood release Deadpool is getting much better at box office. From India only, it raked 4.10 crores on Friday and witnessed little higher response on Saturday.
