This Friday, we don't have one or two but seven Bollywood releases, which will lock horns at the box office. The films which are hitting the screens are Bhaiaji Superhit, Baazaar, 5 Weddings, Marudhar Express, Kaashi in Search of Ganga, Dussehra and Hotel Milan. Interestingly, these films cover all the genres - right from comedy to romance to crime drama. However, most of them have very little buzz. So honestly only Saif Ali Khan-starrer Baazaar and Sunny Deol's Bhaiaji Superhit has the potential to get some kind of opening at the ticket windows.
Talking about Baazaar, the hype of the film is not up to the mark but since it promises to be a content-driven venture, we can expect it to pick-up gradually, with a positive word-of-mouth. Baazaar, which stars Radhika Apte, Chitrangada Singh and debutant Rohan Mehra in key roles, should collect around Rs 2 crore on its first day at the domestic market. Since Saif's last ventures like Kaalakaandi and Chef didn't perform well at the box office, we expect Baazaar to bring him back in the game. Directed by Gauravv K Chawla, it is produced under the banners of B4U, Viacom18 Motion Pictures, Emmay Entertainment.
Coming to Bhaiaji Superhit, the film, which features the ensemble star cast of Sunny Deol, Preity Zinta, Ameesha Patel, Arshad Warsi, Evelyn Sharma and Shreyas Talpade, has been in the news since the last six years. The film has seen several delays but is now finally hitting the screens this week. Since Sunny Deol and the comedy genre works well in single-screens, we think the film will get good footfall there. However, the opening day collections might not be more than Rs 1 crore.
Apart from these two films, we expect Rajkummar Rao and Nargis Fakhri- starrer 5 Weddings to also attract the audience. However, it won't be anywhere close to the numbers clocked in by Rajkummar's last outing, Stree. Anyway, what's you pick for the weekend? Tweet to us...
