New release Bareilly Ki Barfi has opened with decent numbers, considering its mild to fair buzz. On its 1st day, the movie has collected 2.42 crore. BKB is a content driven movie so it is expected to open in this range and grow over the weekend.
BKB’s morning occupancy on 1st day was only around 10% but it improved really well in evening and night shows. This proves that the crowd is looking interested in its comedy love story. Also, the word of mouth for it is quite positive.
In North India, Bareilly Ki Barfi has witnessed a very good response as the story is from UP. The reviews for this Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari directorial are good so it will constantly find sufficient number of footfalls today and tomorrow.
Akshay Kumar’s Toilet: Ek Prem Katha and Hollywood horror film Annabelle: Creation are also giving it a competition in theaters. But, as we have seen with Hindi Medium, Lipstick Under My Burkha and Mubarakan, if audience turns up for the shows, a good film can outlast big ones.
Being a comedy film and a love story, Bareilly Ki Barfi is expected to get a fair and growing response in opening weekend. It stars Ayushmann Khurrana, Kriti Sanon and Rajkummar Rao in lead roles.
