Bareilly Ki Barfi is one of those films for which audience was waiting since long. After many big budget films fell flat on the box office despite huge publicity, this film promised something fresh. And as promised, this Ayushmann Khurrana, Rajkummar Rao, Kriti Sanon starrer film is doing quite well. Directed by the Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari, the film is a sweet humorous love triangle set in North India. The film got good reviews from the critics because of its refreshing content and colourful backdrop. On day 1, Bareilly Ki Barfi garnered Rs 2.42 crores on the ticket windows.
Even though the numbers look small, it is important to note that the film released in less number of screens. It got fifteen percent of screen occupancy and got better response in North India on the first day. Also, one cannot go past the fact that it has Akshay Kumar’s Toilet: Ek Prem Katha standing tall in the competition. The film definitely stood upto people’s expectations and they are still opting for the film. Also, there is another Hollywood gem ‘Annabelle Creations’ which has turned out to be a super hit. However, with strong word of mouth, Bareilly Ki Barfi is sure to pull the fans towards the theatres.
The weekend holidays will also add to the collections of the film. The reviews are quite positive and it won’t be difficult for the film to catch up pace at the box office in these coming two days. Stay tuned to India.com for more updates.
