Sonakshi Sinha, Badshah, and Varun Sharma starrer Khandaani Shafakhana turned out a dud at the box office as it managed to collect only ₹75 lakhs nett on its opening day. According to the Box office reports, the film was not expecting very high numbers and the maximum it could have reached was 1 crore on day 1. Now that the first-day collection is so low, the film doesn’t have much scope.
The plot is based on sex education which is still a taboo in India. While the film is a satire on the typical Indian society, it lacks humor. Varun Sharma played what he plays best, the funny guy whose life, according to him, sucks. He does nothing (he is unemployed) but is in haste to marry, and can’t differentiate between “virgin” and “vargit”(prohibited).
Sonakshi Sinha owns the show and another debutante Priyansh Jore make a mark by his innocent charm. But there is no chemistry between them which is kind of disappointing.
FAST & FURIOUS: HOBBS & SHAW
The spin-off of fast and Furious series Hobbs And Shaw emerged as the sixth-highest opener Hollywood film in India. Its first-day collection surpassed the opening day collection of Spiderman – Far From Home, but it is still less than the previous film of the series Fast & Furious 7.
Hobbs and Shaw had a great start with ₹11 crore nett on its opening day in India.
Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham who played arch enemies in the original series. This film brings them together to fight the greater evil and it is full of action. As expected the film is full of action and thrill. Anyone who is Fast and Furious fan will know that action makes the soul and body of the film and ‘Hobbs and Shaw’ also lives up to the expectations.
The banter between Hobbs and Shaw give the film a humorous twist which was much needed. The actors played their part well including Vanessa, who is also able to kick some asses. It is a watchable film and can easily get 3 stars.
