The new much awaited Hindi offering Mom has been released this Friday at box office, with good expectations of fans as well as audience. Sridevi, Akshaye Khanna, Abhimanyu Singh & Sajal Ali starrer this thiller drama received a decent start at box office. Mom is Sridevi’s 300th film and is being released in the 50th year of her film career.
Mom received positive reviews from critics but got failed to attract much audience toward theaters. It started the opening day with only 15-20% of occupancy and minted the amount of 2.90 crores from 1350 screens in India in Hindi, Telugu, Tamil and Malayalam languages. One of the big reasons for this film to work is the fact that Sridevi will be seen in a Bollywood film again, after her strong comeback in English Vinglish.
The other release, Guest Iin London starring Paresh Rawal, Kartik Aryan and Kriti Kharbanda in key roles has taken a poor start. The film’s Friday morning occupancy was as low as 10%. On a lower than previous installments of the franchise, the third one raked the amount of only 2.10 crores on the opening day. After being panned by critics for its slapstick comedy, the film has low chances of seeing a weekend jump.
Also, it will face a stiff competition from Mom as well as Spiderman – Homecoming. It has been two weeks since Salman Khan’s Tubelight hit the theaters and now the audiences are looking forward to see the new offerings. Tubelight failed to make a significant business in the second week and hence this weekend too it may not make any impact on the new releases.
