Opening Day Collection

A franchise love story is a rare case scenario in Hindi cinema, and that probably is one of the reasons why the buzz around ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’ is really strong. This Alia Bhatt-Varun Dhawan starrer is directed again by Shashank Khaitan post ‘Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania’. Just as it releases this week, we think it will strike gold at the box-office. Here’s why! 

The trailer

The promo received immense appreciation across social media ever since it was released. Since the fi lm is based in a small town, with the actors getting the colloquial language right, it gives a unique vibe and totally has striked a chord with people. The music also has created a great buzz, especially with the recreation of ‘Tamma Tamma’.

The cast

Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan’s chemistry has been appreciated right from their first film, ‘Student Of The Year’, and the two together give a very familiar vibe. Individually as well, the two actors have come a long way and done immensely well for themselves. Alia had such distinctive performances in the form of ‘Dear Zindagi’ and ‘Udta Punjab’ last year, Varun Dhawan had ‘Dhishoom’. Both the actors have immense fan following amongst the youth, and the film is majorly targeting youngsters too.

The franchise

People still remember ‘Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania’, and even its music. Owing to that connectivity and popularity, people might have expectations from ‘Badrinath…’

The time of release

We’ve not really seen a hardcore romcom so far this year, and ‘Badrinath…’ has a good cast, backed by a good banner, so raises high hopes. The film is also enjoying a solo release, so it can certainly be expected to hit the right chord. Hope it lives up to the expectations, and provides some good entertaining content.
