One of the finest Bollywood actors Irrfan Khan & popular south Indian actress Parvathy starrer Qarib Qarib Singlle has passed it’s opening weekend on a decent note despite an average pre-release buzz among audience across the country. The movie has received mixed reviews from critics but audience found it interesting.
Directed by Tanuja Chandra, Qarib Qarib Singlle is a rooted romantic drama based on a quirky plot where two opposite personalities meet on a dating website and set out on a trip. Both the actors have given excellent performances as always, because of which the movie has become more interesting.
On the opening day, it started the journey on an average note and registered the business of 1.75 crores with 15-20% of occupancy. Due to favorable public response, it showed good growth over the weekend and minted the amount of 3.05 crores on Saturday and 3.50 crores on Sunday.
With this, total collection of Qarib Qarib Singlle has become 8.30 crores after the opening weekend. So far it was decent but the real test gets started from Monday when movies face an abrupt downfall in footfalls due to normal working days.
On the other hand, another fine actor Rajkummar Rao and Kriti Kharbanda starrer Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana is based on the same genre as Qarib Qarib Singlle and also got similar reactions but still remained behind that throughout the opening weekend due to low star power and screen count.
On Friday, Ratnaa Sinha’s directorial opened to a low note and raked the business of only 0.75 crore. Due to favorable response, it reported good jump over the weekend and bagged 1.30 crore on Saturday and 1.60 crore on Sunday. With this, it’s opening weekend collection has become 3.65 crores.
