It was a clash of three films last Friday. The Zoya Factor, Prassthanam and Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas- this three film-all from different genres-have locked horns at the box office. All the movies got a poor start, however, the one which performed worst at the box office on Day 1 is Sonam Kapoor and Dulquer Salmaan starrer Zoya Factor. The rom-com based on the novel of Anuja Chauhan collected only Rs 75 lakh nett on its Day 1, reported BoxOffice India.
Meanwhile, Karan Deol and Sahher Bambba's Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas and Sanjay Dutt's Prassthanam showed better opening than The Zoya Factor. While Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas earned around Rs 1.1-1.2 crore, Prassthanam collected somewhere around Rs 75 lakh nett.
According to Boxofficeindia, Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas will witness marginal growth on Saturday with the collection of around Rs 1.50 crore. ''The two day business of the film will be a little under 2.75 crore nett,'' reported the website.
The Zoya Factor which opened at a mere Rs 75 lakhs will collect approx Rs 85 lakh on Saturday. Its total collection stands at Rs 1.50 crore nett. After opening at just Rs 75 lakh, Prassthanam will possibly earn around Rs 1 crore on Saturday, taking its total collection to Rs 1.75 crore nett.
The Zoya Factor directed by Abhishek Sharma is a light-hearted watch in which Dulquer Salmaan plays Nikhil Khoda, Captain of Indian Cricket Team whereas Sonam is a young advertising agency executive, who gets considered as a lucky charm for the cricket team. The movie also stars Angad Bedi, Sanjay Kapoor and Sikandar Kher in important roles.
Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas is the debut film of Karan Deol, Sunny Deol's son. Helmed by the Gadar actor, the movie has been written by Jasvinder Singh Bath and Ravi Shankaran. The romance drama received poor reviews from the critics.
Prassthanam is Hindi remake of 2010 Telugu movie of the same name. Directed by Deva Katta, the film boasts of an ensemble cast of Sanjay Dutt, Jackie Shroff, Manisha Koirala, Chunky Pandey, Ali Fazal, Satyajeet Dubey and Amyra Dastur. Revolving around politics and family, Prassthanam has not been well received by critics. Sanjay Dutt is the co-producer of Prassthanam which marks his reunion with Jackie Shroff and Manisha Koirala after 20 years.
