Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s Mirzya and Prabhudeva’s Tutak Tutak Tutiya are releasing this Friday. Mirzya has garnered good response from its trailer and especially the music. Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy’s music and Gulzar’s lyrics are impressing the audience. Even the story of the film is looking interesting with a fresh approach to romance. However, the star cast of the film is not known as both are the debutantes Harshwardhan Kapoor and Saiyami Kher. Rakeysh Mehra is highly respected for his innovative direction and he has a good reputation due to his previous films like Rang De Basanti, Delhi 6 and Bhaag Milkha Bhaag. The film is expected to take an opening day collections of 3-5 crore.
Mirzya’s screening happened recently and lots of Bollywood celebs have given it a clear thumbs up. As per the promotions and positive response, the film is expected to open well. The morning shows might be dull in terms of occupancy due to the absence of big stars but as the day progresses and if the audiences like the story and chemistry, the word of mouth will easily fill the evening shows and the weekend shows for the film. Another important aspect is that if the film doesn’t connect with the crowd, it will significantly hamper the collections of Mirzya as audiences will choose last week’s grand release M. S. Dhoni – The Untold Story. It all boils down to how Rakeysh Mehra’s storytelling pans out and the romance of two debutantes is loved.
Prabhudeva, Sonu Sood and Tamannaah starrer ‘Tutak Tutak Tutiya’ is a horror comedy. The film has not created much buzz and it will only earn average in multiplexes.
