Photograph, Milan Talkies, Mere Pyare Prime Minister Box-Office Collection, Day 2: The Ship Has Sunk
It’s been quite a dry run at the box-office this Friday, what with all three releases, Sanya Malhotra-Nawazuddin Siddiqui starrer Photograph, Ali Fazal-Shraddha Srinath starrer Milan Talkies and Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s Mere Pyare Prime Minister, failing to deliver. According to Box Office India, the second day business of the movie is Rs 35 lakh which takes its 2-day business to Rs 60 lakh.

Milan Talkies showed absolutely no growth as the movie did a business of Rs 15 lakh, same as the first day business, which takes its 2-day collection to Rs 30 lakh. Finally, Mere Pyare Prime Minister minted Rs 10 lakh on day 2, taking its 2-day business to Rs 18 lakh. Editor Vickey Lalwani rated Photograph only 2 stars and wrote, “Need chai, pronto. Else I can't write this. Oh, here comes my trusted house-help and puts a hot cup of tea on my table where I have settled down after a lot of deliberation. He is a movie buff and wants to know the story of Photograph. Now, now, now...what do I tell him, when there is absolutely none? But he's quite an adamant fellow, been with me since I was in Std 6 and hence I can't dodge him. I start off by telling him that Nawaz plays a photographer at The Gateway Of India. He cuts me to ask, "Nawaz saan itni saari movies kyun karte hain?" I have no answer until I meet Nawaz again. So I request him to let me continue, you see I want to finish off the narrative fast. So Mr Housekeeper, Nawaz has a grandmother who wants to see her middle-aged grandson get hitched so that he can produce babies for her to play. Nawaz feigns a relationship with Sanya. Granny starts giving gyan to them and Sanya keeps staring in space and thinking deeply all the time. Mr Movie Buff butts in to ask what she's thinking and I find myself giving him Ritesh Batra's number to pose that query.”


He even rated Milan Talkies, 2 stars and wrote, “No head or tail, Tigmanshu Dhulia decided to deviate from his usual style of filmmaking and make a love story. Result- A Tacky Product. Ali Fazal is passable, newbie Shraddha Srinath resembles Sonakshi Sinha in many frames, Ashutosh Rana on a comeback trail is wasted, Sikander Kher doesn't get much to do except beat his wife, Sanjay Mishra is cast nowadays and here again as if his presence guarantees success.”


Mere Pyare Minister has nothing to rave about either.
