FIRST DAY COLLECTION: Anushka Sharma’s Phillauri Opens To An Ordinary Figure Of Rs 4.02 Cr

Not a very impressive start for Anushka’s home production. The film, starring Diljit Dosanjh needs to cope up strongly over the weekend to resister a good number at the box-office

Last week, was disastrous at the box-office with films like Machine and Aa Gaya Hero performing miserably. This week, expectations were riding high on Anushka Sharma’s Phillauri.

However, the film witnessed a weak start. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to his Twitter account to post Day 1 collections. He wrote, “#Phillauri is best in North, ordinary elsewhere. Fri ₹ 4.02 cr. India biz... Needs SOLID numbers on Sat+Sun to register STRONG wknd total.”

As Taran Adarsh said, the film has performed well in the North but overall it was a disappointing start for an Anushka Sharma film, considering the diva has delivered two back to back blockbusters- Sultan and Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.

The film has got average reviews from the critics as well as the mass. While some people loved the film, there were others who said the film was too slow paced for their liking, despite good performances from Anushka, Diljit Dosanjh and Suraj Sharma. film critic Khalid Mohamed has also given 2.5 stars to the film.

He summed up the film as, “With all its pros and cons Phillauri is okay, a cut above the average. Meet the friendly ghost lady only if you have time, patience and money to spare.”

Phillauri is Anushka’s second home production after NH-10 which was applauded by critics and audiences alike. This is Diljit’s second Bollywood film after Udta Punjab. The film is directed by debutant Anshai Lal.

The opening of the film is disappointing but let’s wait and see how it performs over the weekend.
