Good Newwz box office day 1: Akshay Kumar, Kareena Kapoor film earns ₹17.56 cr, impacts Salman Khan’s Dabangg 3
Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor’s new film Good Newwz has got off to a good start at the box office. According to trade analyst Taran Adarsh, the film has made ₹17.56 crores.
Tweeting about it, he wrote: “#GoodNewwz packs a solid total on Day 1... Gathers speed from evening shows... Multiplexes especially record excellent numbers... North circuits dominate... Biz should multiply on Day 2 and 3... Fri ₹ 17.56 cr. #India biz... 2019 concludes with #GoodNewwz.” He reported that the film was doing well particularly in multiplexes and that Good Newwz was working very well in the northern circuit. He also predicted that the film would pick up momentum on day 2 and day 3.
An earlier report in Box Office India had said that the film might have edged out Salman Khan’s latest release Dabangg 3, with the latter collecting only ₹3 crore nett.
Writing about the film, the Hindustan Times review said, “Debut director Raj Mehta deals with a rather serious subject of two couples opting for IVF (In-vitro Fertilisation) with a generous mix of comedy and emotions. An urban comedy with its heart in the right place, Good Newwz just hits the right spot.”
Speaking about the film’s prospects, trade analyst Girish Johar had said that he was confident the film would open at over ₹20 crore on day one despite Salman Khan’s Dabangg 3 stil at the ticket windows. “The film has been promoted well across India. The people have liked the trailer. It is a multi-starrer with Akshay, who is already on top and brings a great variety to his work, and Kareena, who is coming after a long time and has a fan following of her own. Kiara and Diljit are also very strong. The songs are hit among the audience and it is also a solo release. Everything looks positive and it should turn out to be a good news in itself.”
