This weekend’s releases ‘Ghayal Once Again’ and ‘Sanam Teri Kasam’ have had fair openings at the box office today.
‘Ghayal Once Again’, starring Sunny Deol and sequel to the 1990 blockbuster, opened up well at single screens, however multiplexes struggled to past the 15% mark. Box Office India reports that an action film like this always was going to find it difficult at multiplexes. It will be interesting how the film performs this weekend. However, it will find it hard to depend on business from just single screens. ‘Ghayal Once Again’ has taken a bigger opening than Deol’s last film ‘Singh Saab The Great’ (2013) but lower than 2011’s ‘Yamla Pagla Deewana’.
‘Sanam Teri Kasam’ starring newcomers Harshvardhan Rane and Pakistani actress Mawra Hocane. It has opened up on par with ‘Ghayal Once Again’ and expectations seem to be better considering the film has a newcomers and the start it has taken. It remains to be seen how it will build numbers in its first weekend.
