While Abhishek Bachchan, Taapsee Pannu and Vicky Kaushal starrer Manmarziyaan managed to impress the critics, the movie witnessed a low start at the box office with just Rs. 3.52 crores earning on the opening day. Manmarziyaan has competition with two other Bollywood films- Mitron and Love Sonia. Although the start was low, the flick raced ahead of its competitors. Manmarziyan reportedly witnessed an average occupancy of around 10 per cent in the morning shows across India and the footfall increased in the evening shows.
Just when the trailer of this Anurag Kashyap's film surfaced the internet, fans were blown away with the terrific performances of the three actors and Kashyap’s direction won him many compliments. Right from Abhishek Bachchan’s return to the big screens after a gap of two years to Anurag Kashyap making a rom-com for the very first time, the film has a lot of buzz around it and the b=numbers are expected to pour in on the weekend.
Trade analyst and Bollywood critic Taran Adarsh shared the numbers and wrote, "#Manmarziyaan has a low Day 1... Started on a dull note in the morning, but picked up towards evening... North circuits were better... Biz will scale upwards on Sat and Sun [a norm these days], but real test will be on weekdays... Fri ₹ 3.52 cr. India biz."
Talking about the performances in the film, India Tv’s critic says, “The soul of the film is undoubtedly the amazing cast of the film. Vicky Kaushal (Vicky) and Abhishek Bachchan (Robbie) are complete opposite to each other. Vicky is like a whacko, living in the world of neon lights and psychedelic hairdos, while Robbie seems to be in total control of his life. And the common connection between these two opposites is a woman aka Taapsee Pannu (Rumi) who is equally at ease with the two ends of the spectrum. Rumi as a carefree, tomboy and feisty Punjabi girl wins hearts. She smokes, she drinks, she rides a bullet, plays hockey and isn’t afraid to kick anyone’s butt. The only thing that she can’t control is her heart! She loves Vicky a lot and wants to get married too but Vicky is just not ready.”
Other than the power-packed performances, the music has played a catalyst to enter the hearts of the audience. Have you seen the trailer yet? Watch it here.
