Vidya Balan’s Begum Jaan has received average response from the audience. After getting a dull morning occupancy, the afternoon and evening shows showed some growth but it was not impressive as the buzz for the film was ordinary.
Begum Jaan has collected 3.94 crore on its 1st Day (1st Friday). Considering the reputation of Balan, the numbers were expected to be better but that was not possible due to poor reviews the movie has got.
This Srijit Mukherji directorial is the solo Hindi release so it has a good chance to mint strong total over the weekend. But its word of mouth too, is weak so there are many obstructions for it to gather decent footfalls.
Hollywood film The Fate of the Furious is giving a stiff competition to Begum Jaan. In fact, FF8 is collecting way more than this Vidya Balan’s film. Its paid previews earnings were more than Begum Jaan’s opening day collections. Moreover, Punjabi film ‘Manje Bistre’ is also getting a huge response in North, in turn eating a significant business of Begum Jaan.
The movie needs to show some growth on Saturday and Sunday so that its weekdays can be stable otherwise it will have a very dull opening week.
Begum Jaan also stars Ila Arun, Pallavi Sharda, Gauhar Khan, Ashish Vidyarthi and Rajit Kapoor. It’s a story of a brothel madam and the prostitutes, who fought against government officials to protect their house.
