For those who hoped Wake Up Sid would be Ranbir Kapoor’s first box office success, would be disappointed reading this.
Much like Bachna Ae Haseeno, Wake Up Sid is likely to finish as an “average” grosser at the box office. The movie which opened to great reviews and tremendous appreciation at major cities has crashed on Monday.
With a limited release on Week 1, a crash in the range of 50 – 60% on Monday was unexpected and while the movie continues to do well in select multiplexes, business at smaller cities and towns is extremely poor.
The word-of-mouth surprisingly is mixed – while youngsters seem to have loved every bit of what Ayan Mukherji had to offer, the family audience have stayed away from theaters and those (the mums – dads – grannies) who have watched it haven’t connected with this Dharma Productions film.
As of now, a HIT seems unlikely.
