This Friday witnessed the release of two Bollywood films and both have opened to a below the mark response at the Box Office. Teri Meri Kahaani, which features Shahid Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra in the leads, one of the most expected movies of 2012. The romantic movie has received a better response than the Anurag Kashyap's Gangs of Wasseypur.
Teri Meri Kahaani has opened to an average response and it had an edge over other new release Gangs of Wasseypur. The movie has registered 35% to 40% occupancy in both multiplexes and single screens in the morning and noon shows. It is expected to rake in Rs 4 to 5.5 crores nett at the Box Office on the first day of its release.
Shahid Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra starrer is a big budget movie and it has had extensive promotional activities. The movie has received negative reviews from the film critics. The film deals with three different plots, which are not properly linked with each other. The makers wanted to it get a fabulous opening. Hence, it has to show a big leap over the weekend, if it has to meet their expectations.
On the other hand, Gangs of Wasseypur is one of the critically acclaimed movies of 2012 and it has been screened in Cannes film festival and a few other international film festivals. But it has received a very poor start at the Box Office. It has registered 8% to 10% occupancy, which is very low when compared to its popularity. The film will have to show a miraculous jump in its business over the weekend, if it has to get decent numbers.
