Jawaani Jaaneman, starring Saif Ali Khan and Alaya, had a rather average opening on Friday, collecting Rs 3.24 crore day one.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the figures on Twitter. “#JawaaniJaaneman does much better than several *solo* #SaifAliKhan movies released in the *recent past*... Biz witnessed an upward trend towards evening shows at metros... Needs to trend well over the weekend for a respectable total... Fri ₹ 3.24 cr. #India biz,” he wrote.
Meanwhile, Ajay Devgn’s Tanhaji The Unsung Warrior remained steady at the ticket windows in the third week and collected Rs 2.77 crore, making a total of Rs 240.64 crore. Taran tweeted, “#Tanhaji continues its dominance, despite multiple films in the marketplace... Will fly high during the weekend, yet again... #Maharashtra is stupendous, contributing a massive chunk to the overall earnings... [Week 4] Fri 2.77 cr. Total: ₹ 240.64 cr. #India biz.”
Directed by Nitin Kakkar, Jawaani Jaaneman marks the Bollywood debut of Pooja Bedi’s daughter Alaya, who features as Saif’s daughter in the movie that also stars Tabu in an interesting role.
Jawaani Jaaneman opened to mixed reviews with the Hindustan Times review praising the light tone of the movie. “What Jawaani Janeman gets bang-on is its light tone and the sense that it is in on the joke. The fact that the film is set in London, apparently beyond the purview of conservative Indian morality, makes it easier to show a modern Indian family. Nobody sits on judgment on Saif’s lifestyle or pregnancy out of wedlock. However, once Tabu’s Ananya enters the picture, things become less self-aware. Jazz dismisses her as a hippy and a drug addict; and in some ways, the film does too. It is to the credit of Tabu that she brings so much colour to her one-dimensional part. As a woman who found nirvana ‘somewhere between sambhog and hashish’, Tabu is a hoot,” the review said.Also Watch | Public review of Jawaani Jaaneman | Saif Ali Khan | Tabu | Alaya F
Last week’s releases Panga and Street Dancer 3D also registered low numbers on Friday. The collections of Varun Dhawan, Shraddha Kapoor-starrer dropped to Rs 2.01 crore range while Kangana’s film should be in the Rs 75 lakh range. Street Dancer now stands at a total of Rs 58.78 crore.
