This Friday's prominent release, the Faraz Haider directed, WAR CHHOD NA YAAR, managed to get a much wider release and screen space than it would have normally bargained for, if Abhinav Kashyap's BESHARAM had performed even half decently.
Coming to the details, the Sharman Joshi and Soha Ali Khan starrer, WAR CHHOD NA YAAR, was off to a 15-20 percent start during the morning shows and showed an uptick in collections during the latter shows.
Unfortunately, despite some decent feedback WAR CHHOD NA YAAR's journey will be cut short as Akshay Kumar's BOSS releases on Wednesday, and so the film has only the weekend to itself for earning as much as it can, a situation very much similar to what Anubhav Sinha's WARNING 3D had to face with BESHARAM releasing on the following Wednesday.
Coming to the fate of the Ranbir Kapoor starrer, BESHARAM, the film crashed badly, more so during the weekdays, as it ended up netting a very ordinary 57 crore (to be validated) during the extended 9-day opening week. Needless to add that BESHARAM will be a rare failure for Ranbir Kapoor, though losses will not be substantial, thanks to the fair overseas performance and non-theatrical rights.
