Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi and Genius are the two new Hindi release this Friday. Both movies opened with a disaster opening, one is better than the other. The first release of this Friday Genius was promoted with the name of Gadar director. But this promotion did not work out and it seems the audience is not interested at all in watching Genius. The movie opened with the morning occupancy of 5% which could be said disaster easily. The afternoon shows were in the same range while the evening and night shows were in the range of 15-20% range. The first-day box office collection of Genius is 80 lakhs which is the lowest opening of the recent time in Bollywood.
Two newcomers have been launched with Genius. Utkarsh Sharma and Ishita Chauhan. Utkarsh Sharma is the son of the well-known filmmaker Anil Sharma who directed some big movies like Gadar, Apne, Jaal and Veer. Well, today is Saturday and the movie needs to grow really well if the movie wants to get rid of the tag of Disaster in its first weekend itself.
The second release of this week is Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi. The last instalment of the movie was not that much successful that a sequel should be made. But there is a trend of Sequel is going on in Bollywood. Three weeks back Saheb Biwi Or Gangster 3 was released despite the fact that both the first two instalments were not successful enough. The same is here Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi has the better cast than the last instalment as Sonakshi Sinha Came on board. But the movie did get good occupancy on its first day.
Happy Phir Bhag Jayegi opened with an occupancy of 10% and had a minor growth throughout the day. The movie collected 2.9 Crores on its First day. But the movie had a mix response from the public and had high chances that the movie will grow over Saturday and Sunday.
