Last week is all about the clash of the titans: Rustom and Mohenjo Daro. But this week it is the class of the newbies. On one hand, there is the typical bold girl on her whirl wheel journey after she eloped in Happy Bhag Jayegi on the contrary its sweet love and clash of the culture in Unindian. Now how the movies have worked is a big question.
The movie has many faults that are majorly affected the business. First of all the character of Happy played by Diana Penty is a mixture of Geet from Jab We Met and Tanu from Tanu Weds Manu. Jimmy Shergill was wasted giving the same character as Tanu Weds Manu. The second aspect the hindered the box office collection of Happy Bhag Jayegi is the overpowering presence of Rustom all over the box office.
Being much promoted and presented by big banner Eros, Happy Bhag Jayegi had decent pre-release hype across the country. It features Diana Penty, Abhay Deol, Jimmy Sheirgill, Ali Fazal and Momal Sheikh in lead roles. As per critics, all the actors have performed very well and made the film entertaining despite several flaws. Last week released Akshay Kumar’s Rustom still ruling on Indian box office and caused much loss to it.
The first hurdle that the movie UnIndian suffered is a delayed release. As a result, it has already started weak and got only selected multiplexes. So the possibility of minting money has already reduced for Unindian than Happy Bhag Jayegi. Then there was the presence of Rustom that is ruling the box office from the last week and destroyed the business of Hrithik Roshan starrer Mohenjo Daro. So it is quite understandable that Unindian is like a feather in front of the tornado.
The movie ended with a 2.3 crore on its third day box office collection. Even the presence of the cricketer turned actor Brett Lee and off bit actress, Tannishtha Chatterjee could not save the movie at the box office, though the movie got a positive response from the critics.
