Our Opening Day Prediction

‘Khandaani Shafakhana’ is a story about a girl, Bedi (Sonakshi‘s character) running her uncles’ sex clinic.  She runs a sex clinic in a place where people have an orthodox mentality and talking about sex, is a taboo. It’s a fight between her and the society.  As per the trailers, dialogues and the gist that we saw; it seems to be knowledgeable and a family film. It doesn’t make us awkward to watch the film with family. The makers claim it to be the first sex film which is a family entertainer and a topic we should talk about openly, without shying away in this time and age.  Here, are the aspects due to which the film might work at the box-office.


The first two trailers of ‘Khandaani Shafakhana’ were highly appreciated by the audience for its unique concept. The makers are using a good strategy step by step to spread eagerness among the audience.  The official trailer received great reviews, and made one question and talk about it.  The second trailer, gave us the insights of the other characters in the film. The film targets all age group audiences; and is certainly relatable as we all must have faced an awkward situations when the term ‘sex’ is used in front of our elders.


As we see, Hindi cinema has evolved quite a lot, with the kind of films that are being made and how equally the audiences have been accepting new stories, concepts and appreciating the filmmakers to invoke such concepts. ‘Khandaani Shafakhana’ is one of those films which seem to have a unique subject. And also, the concept becomes the unique selling point of the film.  Why wouldn’t one go to watch a film which serves something new and makes one acknowledge real facts in life. As a story seeker we would definitely count on this one.


The cast in the film seems quite exciting especially, for these characters. Sonakshi Sinha seems to be on the spree of experimenting with new subjects which makes her one of the bankable actresses we have today. She has made an impact with films like ‘Dabangg’, ‘Akira’, ‘Force 2’, ‘Lootera’ to name a few, having done characters which are varied from one another.  With this one, we see her in a new avatar and she makes it one of the reasons to root the film. On the other hand, we will see rapper Badshah making his Bollywood debut. We have all heard Badshah’s songs; it will be refreshing to watch him act.  And undoubtedly his fans are eagerly waiting to watch him on-screen. The film also stars Varun Sharma and Annu Kapoor in key roles.  While Sharma has created a huge impact with his coming timing post ‘Fukrey’, Annu Kapoor only adds to a film’s USP.
