Irrfan Khan is back with a sequel to his 2017’s superhit film, Hindi Medium – Angrezi Medium which features Deepak Dobriyal, Radhika Madan and Kareena Kapoor Khan. Let us check how much can Angrezi Medium collect on its first day at the box office.
Irrfaan Khan is known as a maestro in acting and off late has done some wonderful comedy drama like Hindi Medium, Blackmail, Qarib Qarib Single, Piku and Karwaan which has made him quite popular among the mainstream audience (he is loved among the niche audience thanks to the beautiful acting in films like Lunch box, Paan Singh Tomato). This time Irrfaan is supported by Deepak Dobriyal, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Radhika Madan while Homi Adjania (Being Cyrus, Fanny Khan and Cocktail) has taken the director’s seat from Saket Chaudhary.
Talking about 2017’s Angrezi Medium, Saket Chaudhary gave us a fabulous meaning to the orthodox education system being followed in India which became a runaway success at the box office. Since the formula worked, Homi Adjania implements the same concept with the sequel. The trailer of Angrezi Medium was launched 4 weeks back and has received good response in terms of views (29 millions) and the audience feedback is great. Unfortunately, the songs have not reached to the optimum level created by the first part (remember memorable songs by Pritam in form “Suit Suit”, “Ek Hi dari”.)
The advance booking of Angrezi Medium had already started and the current trend is showing that romantic drama is pacing ahead of Hindi Medium. The competition from Baaghi 3 will be there but more than that, the Corono Virus scare is also there. Hindi Medium worked very well in Delhi at the time of release. However, due to the yesterday’s announcement by the Delhi CM of shitting down the cinema hall till 31st March will hurt the economy of the film. Summing up all the things, as per our analysis, Angrezi Medium can get an opening of Rs 4-5 crores and will definitely beat the opening day figure of Hindi Medium which collected Rs 2.81 crore on its first day.
Angrezi Medium is being produced by Dinesh Vijan under the Maddock film Productions.
