The genre of War comedy was a road less taken by many of our film directors, but director Faraz Haider’s took the bold step of exploring this genre. His recently release ‘War Chhod Na Yaar’ has received ‘Just about average response’ from the audience in it’s first weekend reveal trade experts. War Chhod Na Yaar was released on October 11, witnessed some growth in its opening weekend. ‘War Chhod Na Yaar’ stars Sharman Joshi, Jaaved Jaaferi, Soha Ali Khan, Sanjay Mishra, Mukul Dev and Dalip Tahil.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh said that in threes days of its release, the movie saw a “marginal growth”. “‘War Chhod Na Yaar’ collected approximately Rs. 4.50 crore net in its opening weekend. On Friday (it earned) Rs.1.30 crore, Saturday Rs.1.50 crore, Sunday Rs.1.70 crore,” Adarsh posted on Twitter.
According to Prasanth Narayanan, director at AOPL Entertainment Pvt. Ltd. who have produced this movie, the movie was made on a budget of Rs.14 crores and was released in 754 screens across India. The movie also hit few screens in Middle East and Malaysia. The makers are hopeful that the response from the audience will improve over the week.
Bollywood’s last big release ‘Besharam’ which was directed by Abhinav Kashyap got released on October 2nd. The movie failed to get any kind of response from the audience. Besharam was made with a budget of over Rs.60 crores, crashed completley at the box office said Taran Adarsh. “It has collected approximately Rs.3.10 crore net in weekend two. Grand total is Rs.58.46 crore net. Flop,” he added. A source from a leading multiplex chain told us that Besharam’s performance was less than average.
And apart from ‘Boss’ which is releasing this Friday, there are no other movies to really rock the Box-Office charts. So, according to us, the movie, War Chhod Na Yaar will do somewhat well and pick up amongst the audience. The movie’s story-line too isn’t dissapointing in any way.
