Hope so everyone remembers the Fukrey Honey (pulkit Samrat) and choocha (Varun Sharma) in comedy movie of 2013 fukrey. It starred Richa Chadda in a negative role which was however liked positively by the audiences. The movie which was made barely on the budget of 16 cr collected 36 cr on box office more than double the production cost.
Not only the movie was hit but also its lead characters gained popularity overnight and were the talk of the town till now.
Owing to the huge popularity of fukrey makers came up with its part two i.e. fukrey returns which released yesterday. Starring pulkit Samrat, Varun Sharma, Richa Chadda, Priya Anand, ali Fazal, Manjot Singh, vishaka Singh, Pankaj Tripathi and one of the most liked negative character of Richa Chadda as bholi punjaban.
The movie opened very well on the day 1 collected 8.10 cr.
Fukrey fans have stunned the trade analysts who were predicting the first-day box office collection of the movie to be around 3-4 cr and the first weekend around 13-14 cr.
Fukrey returns made all the calculations of trade analyst wrong and made a bumper opening considering the star cast which doesn’t have any big names in it. Fukrey returns also proved that content is still the king of making a successful film and not the big names.
Few factors contributing to the success of fukrey returns is the movie got a solo release and just two competitors from the last week. Fukrey is having all plus points as last week both the release Firangi starring Kapil Sharma and tera intezar starring sunny Leone and Arbaaz Khan failed to impress the audience. And again for the coming week, there is no major release just one movie of Nawazuddin Siddiqui ‘Monsoon shootout’
But fukrey has a complete week to rack in handsome moolah as going by the opening day it may have a first weekend total of 25-27 cr which alone will come closer to its production cost of 30 cr.
