Yesterday we saw two big films – Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao starrer Judgementall Hai Kya and Dilijit Dosanjh and Kirti Sanon starrer Arjun Patial, battling out. Let us see which film opened better on the first day at the box office.
Judgementall Hai Kya
After giving an electrifying performance in Manikarnika-The Queen Of Jhansi this year, Kangana Ranaut is back with her second film and is accompanied by the supremely talented, Rajkummar Rao.
Looking from the trailer of Judgementall Hai Kya (touched 21 million views in just three weeks), the suspense-drama has garnered good amount of curiosity from the audience to watch the two extremely talented stars under the same roof.
The buzz is strong due to promotion, marketing and of course the big controversy. The reviews have been very good from the critics while the audience have given mixed reviews (BookMyShow.com) who will ultimately decide the fate of the film. Judgementall Hai Kya has opened to a decent response with 15-20% occupancy in the morning shows across India and picked up slightly in the evening and night shows. As per early trade estimates, Judgementall Hai Kya has collected somewhere between Rs 4-5 crore on its first which is below expectations. Since the content of the film has been appreciated, the earnings should be good on Saturday and Sunday. The psychological comedy thriller is produced by Ekta Kapoor and directed by Prakash Kovelamudi. The budget is Rs 35 crore (Production cost is Rs 25 crore, Promotion cost is Rs 10 crore).
The second big release, Arjun Patiala, has met with dismal response in the morning show with an occupancy of 5-10% inspite of starring Dilijit Dosanjh, Kirti Sanon along with Varun Sharma of Fukrey fame.
From the makers of Luka Chuppi, Stree and Hindi Medium, Arjun Patiala faced the Competition from Judgementall Hai Kya and opened to just Rs 1.5-2.5 crore across India. Due to the presence of Dilijit Dosanjh, Arjun Patiala should do well in North India and Punjab region. Reviews from critics have not been too kind while the feedback from the audience is decent
Rohit Jugraj Chauhan is directing Arjun Patiala who had pretty popular films in Punjabi like Sardarji, Sardarji 2 and Jatt James Bond.
