Time doesn’t seem to be favourable for Sidharth Malhotra and Parineeti Chopra as both of them are pretty desperate for a hit movie but their latest release “Jabariya Jodi” does not appear to have made a solid start on the box-office.
The flick which is directed by Prashant Singh and produced by Balaji Productions has collected Rs 3.15 crore on its first day.
Hopefully, the business will get a boost on Saturday and Sunday and absence of another big budget film can also help “Jabariya Jodi” in getting good collections.
This is what trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted,
“#JabariyaJodi is dull on Day 1… Needs miraculous growth on Day 2 and 3 for a respectable weekend total… Fri ₹ 3.15 cr. India biz.”

The movie is based on the practice of pakadwa vivah (groom kidnapping) which takes place in some areas of Bihar. It happens when the groom’s side asks for huge dowry and the family of the bride is not able to fulfill their demands.
“Jabariya Jodi” presents this whole practice in a funny manner and also tries to give a social message but the critics were not quite happy with the movie and some of them even found it frustrating to watch.
Although the lead actors have been praised for their performances, it appears that they are not able to pull the crowd towards the theatre on the opening day.
This is the second time that Sidharth and Parineeti have shared the screen; they worked together for the first time in “Hasee Toh Phasee” which released in 2014 and bombed at the box-office.
Have you watched “Jabariya Jodi”? If yes, how did you find it?
