Sanam Teri Kasam 1st Day Performance Report
Every good love story has a touch of the absurd. But Sanam Teri Kasam is neither a believable romantic yarn nor are its stabs of stupidity within the realms of the passable. The film is helmed by not one but two directors, and that’s one too many, but it’s completely directionless. Its asinine and unending narrative convolutions reinforce long discarded stereotypes about gender roles and the idea of beauty. In the bargain, it falls back on mothballed devices, including a terminal illness – a deep tumour in the brain, no less – to add a tragic tinge to the mayhem. Sloppy writing and an abject absence of editorial sharpness are the film’s principal bane.
Director duo Radhika Rao and Vinay Sapru do not help matters. They stretch virtually every scene beyond the limits of endurance. Telugu movie star Harshvardhan Rane has the looks and screen presence to pass off for a convincing hunk. But surely there is more to acting than looking good. Debutante Mawra Hocane, a Pakistani VJ taking baby steps in Bollywood, is waiflike and delectably feminine. Music and trailer of the movie, have created good buzz on social media and successfully gained much attention of audience.
This romantic drama is releasing under the big banner Eros International with average screen count. It is expected to get overall 30-35% occupancy across the country and estimated to gross over 5.50 crores*. The film is visually looking good as well. It is getting a good release, courtesy Eros which has come on board. For the film’s weekend to turn out well, it would all depend on word of mouth. If youngsters catch fancy of this Radhika Rao & Vinay Sapru directed musical romantic entertainer, the collections may see a jump over the weekend.
