Box office has been on an upswing since the beginning of 2018 with films such as Sanju and Padmaavat but this Friday brought some bad news. Three Hindi films released this week – Anil Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai’s Fanney Khan, Dulquer Salmaan and Irrfan Khan’s Karwaan and Mulk starring Rishi Kapoor and Taapsee Pannu.
The box office numbers of Karwaan, Fanney Khan and Mulk are now in and in the number one spot is Karwaan. The decidedly smaller film that Fanney Khan, the road trip film has made Rs. 4.25 crores in two days, according to a Box Office India report. Fanney Khan, meanwhile, earned Rs 4.25 crore from ticket sales on Friday and Saturday. The third film, Mulk’s tally is Rs 4.25 crore. Sunday numbers will decide how much the three films will earn over the first weekend.
Of the three, Fanney Khan was the strongest on Friday with Rs 1.9 crore earning at the box office. It failed to show much of an improvement on Saturday with Rs 2.25 crore earned that day.
Karwaan, in comparison made only Rs 1.5 crore on Friday but almost doubled its earnings on Saturday with Rs 2.75 crore tally. Mulk also showed some improvement as it earned Rs 1.45 crore on Friday and Rs 2.35 crore on Saturday.
Other than Dulquer and Irrfan, Karwaan also stars Mithila Palkar and is about fathers and their children. The film has received largely positive reviews and has been doing better on strength of positive word-of-mouth.
Fanney Khan has garnered applause for a charming performance by Anil Kapoor but the reviews for the film have been mixed. Mulk is a courtroom drama, which has received appreciation for tackling a difficult but timely subject.
