Since Aamir Khan’s Dangal was released on 23rd December, 2016, box office is enjoying the film’s storm with record breaking streak. Now, we are having the first releases of 2017 this Friday. Ok Jaanu and Haraamkhor.
The romantic film Ok Jaanu stars the famous on screen pair Shraddha Kapoor and Aditya Roy Kapur. This movie is an official remake of Mani Ratnam’s Tamil film ‘Ok Kanmani’. Ok Jaanu’s trailer and songs have received a good response from audience. However, there are also fans of original Tamil film who are not much impressed with the trailer and some songs as they rate the original one higher than the remake. Shraddha Kapoor has a good fan following in youth, especially in urban region so multiplexes will show a fair response to the film.
Also, Shraddha-Aditya’s pair has previously won the hearts of people in Aashiqui 2, so they will go to theaters to once again witness the romantic on-screen pair. Ok Jaanu is expected to take on opening of 5-6 crore. The film needs to have a good response otherwise, Dangal will take over the weekend as it is already dominating the box office.
Other film is Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s Haraamkhor. It is a quirky love triangle comedy in which Nawaz is playing a professor. The film had a long battle with Censor Board and is finally releasing. Its trailer is liked by people but it doesn’t have much awareness as the promotions are not heavy on social media. It needs word of mouth to reach maximum people. Haraamkhor will grab around 1-2 crore on its opening day.
