After having an average start at the box office on opening day, Baazaar witnessed decent growth in its collection on day 2.
However, even after having a good start the movie could not earn much. The film, which had earned Rs 3.07 crore on its opening day, has managed to mint Rs 4.10 crore on its second day, taking the total collection to Rs 22.97 crore.
Starring Saif Ali Khan, Radhika Apte, Chitrangada Singh and debutant Rohan Mehra.
The film is based on the story of Mumbai’s city life, and pushes you into the semi-dark world of its stockbrokers.
This film is the best opening for Saif Ali Khan in recent times with his other films being around the 1 crore nett mark.
A big problem is that the film is entirely predictable. The twists can be spotted from a mile away, and the plotting is strictly by-the-numbers.
There are way too many songs that stretch the running time, and the filmmakers are unable to bring that tension needed to convey the anxiety of fluctuating stock prices.
Baazaar is expected to get tough competition from last week’s release Badhaai Ho.
Amit Sharma’s directorial, starring Ayushmann Khurrana, Sanya Malhotra and Neena Gupta, has been doing exceptionally well at the box office and its collections have now reached Rs.111.33 crore.
Badhaai Ho from the previous week is still going strong which has further worsen the case for Saif Ali Khan starrer Baazaar.
Baazaar had an extremely poor start in the morning shows, but had picked up its pace during the times.
As the film has garnered mixed reviews from the critics, it failed to win the heart of the audience and is not even abe to earn profit.
