This Friday, Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari’s Bareilly Ki Barfi is released amidst the last week’s Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’s dominance. With a good number of screens, Bareilly Ki Barfi has got a decent pre-release buzz but it is TEPK, which is still ruling the box office.
Bareilly Ki Barfi is getting a dull response in its morning shows for 1st day. So far, the occupancy is around 8-10%, which is not good. It is facing a huge competition from Toilet: Ek Prem Katha and also the Hollywood film Annabelle: Creation.
Being a content driven film, Bareilly Ki Barfi will take a slow start but if its word of mouth and reviews are good, audience will show a fair number of crowd for its shows in afternoon and evening shows. That’s the usual pattern for content strong movies. If audience loves the movie, its opening weekend will also be amazing.
Bareilly Ki Barfi is a love story, comedy and has a desi feel so it can have a good appeal in small centers too but that still remains to be seen as another desi movie TEPK is already entertaining the Indian crowd. Bareilly Ki Barfi stars Ayushmann Khurrana, Kriti Sanon and Rajkummar Rao.
