Baazaar, Kaashi Box-Office Collection, Day 1: Saif Ali Khan’s Stock Doesn't Open Well, While Sharman Joshi’s Suspense Has Intrigued Hardly Any

After playing his part well in the web series Sacred Games, Saif Ali Khan returned to silver screen with Gauravv K Chawla’s Baazaar co-starring Chitrangda Singh, Radhika Apte and Vinod Mehra’s son Rohan. On the other hand, Sharman Joshi delivered a suspense thriller, Kaashi In Search Of Ganga, co-starring South actress Aishwarya Devan. But looks like, it was not a fantastic Friday for both movies. According to Taran Adarsh’s tweet, Saif starrer has collected only Rs 3.07 Cr, while Kaashi pocketted just  Rs 20 lakh.

Trade Analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted the numbers of Baazaar and wrote, “#Baazaar had an extremely poor start in the morning shows, but picked up pace during the course of the day... Has fared much better than the recent Saif Ali Khan starrers... Mumbai circuit is driving the biz... Fri ₹ 3.07 cr. India biz.”

Baazaar is a good film. SpotboyE.com Editor Vickey Lalwani rated Baazaar with 3 stars and wrote, “First things first. Fresh from the web series Sacred Games where he played his part well, Saif Ali Khan is finally shining again on the big screen. The Nawab of Pataudi is so good that he erases all the bad memories you have of his past few years when the filmmakers did not do justice to his skills. Rohan Mehra does his late father Vinod Mehra proud. What a break! And what a performance! The film begins and ends with this young man. Baazaar is a complicated (good for you if you know the intricacies of how Dalal Street functions) film of the egos of these two males in the big bad world of stocks, but yet extremely entertaining with a lot of dialogue-baazi.”

While rating Kaashi In Search Of Ganga, he rated the film as 1.5 stars and wrote, “There's too much happening in the town called Kaashi and the man called Kaashi. But yet the pace of the film is painstaikingly slow. And so beyond a point you are not interested in who's the mastermind behind the disappearance of Sharman Joshi's (Kaashi) sister. And so, Kaashi can be summed up as a thriller which loosens up so much (after the interval, to be precise) that you are just waiting for it to end. That says it all, doesn't it?"

Let's see what Day 2 holds for both movies. We shall bring you the update tomorrow.
