This week will witness one of the most anticipated release(s) of the second half of the year, Imtiaz Ali’s Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma starrer JAB HARRY MET SEJAL. The other film slated for release is JAR Picture’s noir thriller, GURGAON starring Akshay Oberoi, Ragini Khanna and Pankaj Tripathi. Needless to add that the front runner by a long margin will be JHMJ, which is likely to embark on a good start, both in India and overseas.
JAB HARRY MET SEJAL, MUBARAKAN AND INDU SARKAR
Checking out the premier release of last week, Anees Bazmee’s Anil-Arjun Kapoor starrer MUBARAKAN, after a decent opening day the film picked up beautifully peaking on Sunday netting 23-24 crore during its opening weekend from India, which given the current box-office scenario, is quite praiseworthy. Having said that, the film will have to give way to SRK’s JAB HARRY MET SEJAL which would definitely hamper its prospects and so it will not be able to achieve its full potential. MUBARAKAN is alright in the overseas grossing $1.35 with £105,000 from UK and $310,000 from the US, during the opening weekend (28-30 July).
The other releases of the same week, Madhur Bhandarkar directed INDU SARKAR, Tigmanshu Dhulia’s RAAG DESH and Viacom 18 Motion Pictures’ BAARAT COMPANY, failed to impress at the ticket counter, despite the first two mentioned films getting some good reviews.
