Box office: 'Humshakals' off to a good start

'Humshakals' set for a decent opening weekend

Despite being unanimously panned by critics, Sajid Khan’s latest comedy Humshakals has opened to a good start at the box office.

The film minted in the range of Rs. 12.25 crore to Rs. 12.50 crore nett at the Indian box office on Friday. This is a very decent figure for a film that’s been trashed left, right, and centre by critics.

Starring Saif Ali Khan, Riteish Deshmukh, Ram Kapoor, Tamannaah, Esha Gupta and Bipasha Basu, the film tells the story of a millionaire and his friend who have two sets of lookalikes, one set mentally deranged, the second set totally gay.

Humshakals is made at an approx. cost of Rs. 75 crore, and going by its opening day collections, it is expected to mint close to Rs. 40 crore net in the opening weekend. A figure below Rs. 35 crore would spell trouble for the film.

Movie Review: Watch ‘Humshakals’ if you are a Himmatwala

Trade predictions don’t peg Humshakals as a flop, but don’t label it as a potential hit either. Going by the early trends, the film is set to be an average performer that will recover its cost.

Meanwhile, Akshay Kumar’s latest release Holiday - A Soldier Is Never Off Duty has entered the coveted Rs. 100 crore club on Saturday, June 21. The film took 15 days to cross the milestone.

The coming week would see the release of Ek Villain. The film is expected to rake in a good opening.
