After a slow start at the box office on its opening day, Saif Ali Khan and debutant Rohan Mehra starrer Baazaar hit the right chords with the audience and witnessed an upward trend. While the film earned Rs 3.07 crores on the first day, the second day recorded a 33.55% growth in the numbers and earned Rs. 4.10 crores. This makes its total as Rs 7.17 crores.
Bollywood trade analyst and critic Traan Adarsh shared the latest numbers on his social media and wrote, “#Baazaar picks up pace on Day 2... Witnesses 33.55% growth, which is a healthy trend... Needs to regain lost ground by scoring higher numbers on Day 3 and also on weekdays... Mumbai circuit is performing better... Fri 3.07 cr, Sat 4.10 cr. Total: ₹ 7.17 cr. India biz.”
The film might have not done wonders on the box office in the first two days but the lead actors’ performance is much praised by the critics all over, As much as they have appreciated the strong persona of Saif Ali Khan, who plays a rich businessman, in the film, debutant Rohan Mehra has equally managed to impress everyone with his tight hold on acting skills and confident personality. His charm is the other thing that has made many fall in love with him.
Baazaar starts with the cliché atrociously handsome and powerful man getting his hands on anything and everything he wants. He never loses and has never learnt anything but to win. On the contrast, Rizwan Ahmed has spent majority of his life with his middle-class salaried father who gets rewarded for his loyalty with only a Rs 2690 watch. Not wanting to spend his life in budget clothes and a small town house, Rizwan leaves the town with gargantuan dreams in his eyes. We’ve seen so many Bollywood movies around similar premise of a middle-class man trying to do something big. Overnight, his life changes and everything drifts so easily; taking the film far, far away from the cruel ways of real life.
The first half of the film was full of such clichés and one-liners. “Marathon me daudne walo ko duniya yaad nahi rakhti”. And so Shakun Kothari, an over-ambitious businessman, wants to double, triple and quadruple his money in whatever way he can. He is so much like the most of the businessmen in India or any other part of the world. They pray money, breath money and their life revolves around money.
Baazaar is produced by Nikkhil Advani, Monisha Advani, Madhu G. Bhojwani, Ishan Saksena, Dheeraj Wadhawan, Sunil Shah and Ajay Kapoor.
