Hamari Adhuri Kahani has fared poorly on its opening day at the box office, collecting just Rs 5.04 crore on Friday. For a film directed by Mohit Suri, the first day collections of Hamari Adhuri Kahani is the lowest since his 2010 film Crook.
Comparison between last few Mohit Suri directed films
- Murder 2 – 7 crore
- Aashiqui 2 – 5.75 crore
- Ek Villain – 16.5 crore
- Hamari Adhuri Kahani – 5.04 crore
Apart from a poor marketing campaign and the lead pair failing to generate interest amongst the audience, Hamari Adhuri Kahani was facing tough competition from films like ‘Tanu Weds Manu Returns’, ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’ and Hollywood film ‘Jurassic World’.
Moving on to the positive side of things, the reports from smaller centres is good, which could help the film sustain well throughout the week. But a lifetime total of more than 35-40 crore is looking difficult. Multiplexes need to show huge growth in business today (Saturday) and tomorrow, if the film has to have any chance of emerging a success.
