This Friday three movies got released and three of them carries the same buzz around. We are talking about Fanney Khan here as it marks the comeback of gorgeous Aishwarya Rai Bachchan back in films and other most important buzz is she is reuniting with Taal co-star Anil Kapoor almost after two decades.
Well, Aishwarya made a bang on entry with Atul Manjrekar's directorial movie in which she is playing the role of a singer Baby Singh. Aishwarya will be seen in a totally different avatar which will be a treat for her fans. The movie marks the beautiful journey of a father-daughter duo.
The film is going well as 2 other movies are also released the same day. Fanney Khan managed the opening of Rs 2.15 crore at the box office. Taran Adarsh, a trade analyst tweeted, "#FanneyKhan has an extremely poor start… Fri ₹ 2.15 cr. India biz."
Trade analyst Girish Johar had earlier predicted that Fanney Khan could rake Rs 2.5 crore on its first day. Whilst speaking to indianexpress.com, he said, "As of now, Fanney Khan is expected to lead on Friday. Since the film is packed with an ensemble cast including Anil Kapoor, Rajkummar Rao, Aishwarya Rai and Divya Dutta who all are a powerhouse of acting, it will attract more audience. It might open with a collection of Rs 2.5 crore on its first day."
Girish Johar further explained why Fanney Khan will have a slight edge over the others. He said. "Though all the films are catering to the same multiplex audience and the thinking audience, Fanney Khan will have more audience because of its content."
Well, if there is a positive, it will carry negative also. Film critic Shubhra Gupta gave an average review and said, "The gorgeous Rai essentially plays herself, with maybe one or two true-to-the-character moments. And Rao, who gets to share a lot of screen time with her, is never completely at ease around her, breaking out more with Kapoor, his co-worker, and partner-in-crime. The outmoded melodramatic treatment drowns even the most competent, including Girish Kulkarni as a sleazy talent manager who preys on unsuspecting young women, and Divya Dutta as Lata’s mother and Fanney’s faithful wife."
Well, this can't stop the die-hard fans of Aishwarya, Rajkummar, and Anil Kapoor from watching the movie. With this B'twon welcomes a powerpack Trio.
