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.
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.
