Varun Dhawan-Banita Sandhu’s October was off to a slow start at the box office on Friday. The Shoojit Sircar film is a hatke love story which has garnered glowing reviews, with the critics lauding its poetry. But the audience thumbed down its pace.
October collected Rs 5.04 crore on day 1 but picked up pace on Saturday and Sunday.
#October witnessed ample growth on Sat and Sun, after a slow start on Fri morning/noon... While the trending is healthy, it’s all about maintaining the pace on weekdays now... Fri 5.04 cr, Sat 7.47 cr, Sun 7.74 cr. Total: ₹ 20.25 cr. India biz.— taran adarsh (@taran_adarsh) April 16, 2018
#October has a slow start... Biz will have to witness miraculous growth over the weekend + maintain a strong trend on weekdays to leave a mark... Word of mouth is extremely mixed... Fri ₹ 5.04 cr. India biz.— taran adarsh (@taran_adarsh) April 14, 2018
October revolves around Dan (Varun Dhawan), a hotel intern and how he deals with the death of a colleague Shiuli (Banita Sandhu). The film is produced by Ronnie Lahiri, directed by Shoojit Sircar and written by Juhi Chaturvedi. Varun Dhawan’s performance is being commended for being stripped off the ‘star’ charisma.
