The film is picking up after Friday...
Critically acclaimed Talvar which released on October 2 with a big-budgeted Singh Is Bliing was off to a slow start yesterday. It could garner only Rs 2.50 crore on the day one with additional Rs 50 lakhs through paid previews on Thursday.
The film is based on the real-life murder mystery of Aarushi Talvar and deeply encapsulates nuances of the murder mystery. Critics have have Irrfan Khan and Konkona Sen's performance as gripping and intense. But sadly, the film could not do well on the first day. The film picked up comparatively well on Saturday, though. It collected Rs 2.75 crore on Saturday. The total collection of two days is Rs 5.75 crore.
Singh Is Bliing, which released on the same day, is doing very well on the other hand. The film is Akshay Kumar's highest opening ever and is already inching towards the coveted Rs 50 crore mark. This film has managed to rake in Rs 35.17 crore till now and the business could escalate on Sunday, predict trade experts.
But, one can't forget that Talvar has got some rave reviews by critics as well as the audience and has been getting a good word-of-mouth publicity. The film might emerge as a sleeper hit based on the rave reviews it is getting. But the fact is that Singh Is Bliing is ruling the box office currently!
