Kajol is returning to Hindi films after a pause of almost three years with the movie helicopter eela. She was last seen in Rohit Shetty’s critically-panned film Dilwale (2015) that had none other than Shah Rukh Khan opposite her. At the domestic box-office too, the film, also starring Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon, had failed to show its magic. The story of a mom and her obsession with her son is something really new and interesting. It is a fun watch because we see Kajol back in her quirky, bubbly element and it is a delight to see her in such a character. Riddhi Sen is also touching the audience’s heart with his role and Pradeep Sarkar has successfully made a beautiful film. Though it got mixed reviews, on the whole, people think Kajol saved the film and made it worth the watch!
Predicting the opening-day and opening-weekend collections of the film, Akshaye said, “I think it can collect something to the tune of Rs 3.5 crore-Rs 4 crores on Day 1. Opening weekend should be around Rs 7 crore.” Do Read: Junior NTR Aravinda Sametha Movie 2nd / Second Day Collections at Box Office.
For the other releases of the week including Fryday, Jalebi and Tumbbad, Johar predicts a collection of less than a crore on their opening day. “It will be a tough battle at the box office this week since the audience for Andhadhun, Helicopter Eela, Tumbbad and Fryday are almost the same,” he asserts. Adding to it, he says, “Govinda is a charmer and Varun Sharma with his character of Choocha has also won hearts. So, Fryday can lead after Helicopter Eela. Also, its chances of earning at the box office are more because comedy films attract family audiences.”
