Half Girlfriend got average to negative reviews from critics. However, the hype surrounding the movie was high. We would expect it to collect in the range of 15cr keeping in mind that it came from the makers of Aashiqui 2 and Ek Villain. Forget the 15cr mark; Half Girlfriend struggled to even cross the 10cr mark on Day 1. Despite the hype and a fresh pair with the support of good music; Half Girlfriend has brought in average collections on its first day. These collections would be termed decent but expectations from the film were high, and it has disappointed everyone.
The film was released on 2500 screens across Indian theaters. It has managed to collect *10cr on its first day. Shraddha and Arjun promoted the movie heavily, but it looks like the Bahubali storm is still in action. Bahubali 2 which is getting closer and closer to 500cr has maintained the interest of the audience. This has affected Half Girlfriend. Despite the negative reviews, we expect it to grow in the weekends. However, the occupancy reports for Saturday deny our expectations yet again.
There are individual reports that single screen audience has rated Half Girlfriend in good to average section. The multiplex audience is not keen on watching the film either. Though, there are fewer chances of witnessing any growth in numbers. The movie opened with around 35% occupancy yesterday. The occupancy has been the same today as well. We expect it to collect in the range of 9-11cr today.
Half Girlfriend is a film revolving around the love story of a Bihari boy and a Modern Delhi girl. It features Shraddha Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor in lead roles. The Mohit Suri directorial also stars Rhea Chakraborty and Vikrant Massey in supporting roles. It is out in theaters. Watch it and share your experience. [Movie Rating – 2 stars]
