Sonakshi Sinha’s latest comedy film Khandaani Shafakhana opened on a disappointing note at the box office. While not much was expected from the film, it failed to make even 1 crore on its first day. Sonakshi Sinha plays the role of Baby Bedi in the film, who inherits a sex clinic after the death of her uncle. While the topic of the film was refreshing and aimed to bring awareness, it failed to entertain the audience- and it shows in the box- office numbers.
The film failed to attract the crowd to the theatres and also received disappointing reviews. Khandaani Shafakhaana release clashed with Hollywood film Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw. According to BoxOfficeIndia.com,“The new Hindi film Khandaani Shafakhana is a dud as it collected 75 lakhs nett on day one. There is not much hope from this as the numbers are too low. Not that much was expected from the film anyway and the best it could have hoped for is 1 crore nett.”
SpotboyE Editor Vickey Lalwani rated it One-and-Half stars and wrote, “Aaj Ka Bollywood: Every Tom, Dick and Harry wants to be an actor/producer/director/singer. Ghus jao, after all the world is a stage. Khandaani Shafakhana is a classic case in point of someone (Shilpi Dasgupta) who wanted to experiment whether she can make a film. Natija: Tumse Nahin Ho Paya. What a waste of time, money and resources.”
He further added, “So, I must say now that it's high time that Shotgun's daughter selects films with a magnifying glass. She came like a whiff of fresh air in Dabangg, was wonderful in Lootera, and then it all fell apart. Seems, films are envisaged to her wrongly and she falls for them. What's the bait? Money? Certainly not. To be seen on screen? But in movies like these? Cringing, definitely not at the subject but the tacky manner in which Khandaani Shafakhana has been handled. It pains to see Sonakshi trying to pull a cart without wheels with so much enthusiasm. “
Khandaani Shafakhana, directed by Shilpi Dasgupta also stars Varun Sharma, Annu Kapoor, and Priyanshu Jora in pivotal roles. The film released on August 2.
