This Friday we see the clash of two interesting but very different films – Ayushmann Khurrana starrer Dream Girl and Akshaye Khanna starrer Section 375. Let us see which film made it big at the box office.
Welcomed by glowing reviews, the Ayushmann Khurrana and Nushrat Barucha starrer Dream Girl opened big at the box office
After giving solid hit in form of Article 15, Ayushmann Khurrana is back with his second film, Dream Girl which has a fresh star cast with Nushrat Barucha, who is also returning from giving the super hit, Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, and Annu Kapoor, who collaborate with Ayushmann in his first film Vicky Donor.
The trailer of Dream Girl was released on 12th August and has gained immense popularity with the views crossing 29 millions. The comic scenes and funny dialogues had worked well along with the plot of the film which has never attempted before. Directed by Raaj Shaandilyaa, Dream Girl got appreciated by both critics and audience and opened to an occupancy of 30% in the morning shows across India. The collections picked up in the evening and the night shows. As per our analysis, Ekta Kapoor produced Dream Girl faced some competition from the last week’s Chhichhore, which is doing extremely well at the ticket window but still managed to get an opening of Rs 10-12 crore, beating Badhaai Ho which was the previous highest opener for Ayushman Khurrana with Rs 7.3 Crore. The budget of Dream Girl is 30 Crore (Production Cost: 20 Crore, Prints & Advertising Cost: 10 Crore)
Akshaye Khanna returns to the silver screen after giving admiring performances in films like Ittefaq and Mom and Section 375 looks another powerful film based on the sensitive subject which states that if a woman does not physically resist the act of penetration, it shall not be regarded as consenting to the sexual activity. He is supported by Richa Chadha while the film is directed by Ajay Bahl.
Though Article 15 dealt with a controversial subject and had popular actor, Section 375 has got better reviews than Dream Girl. As per our analysis, Section 375 opened to a dull response between Rs 1-2 crore on its first day. We are yet to receive the budget details of Section 375
