BOX OFFICE: Here’s how much Baar Baar Dekho collected in its first 2 days of release

Katrina Kaif and Sidharth Malhotra’s Baar Baar Dekho’s first two days’ collection at the Box Office is just about okay, and certainly less than what was expected. Here are all the numbers….

Looking at the pre-release buzz, looked like the Sid-Kat starrer and director Nitya Mehra’s debut film ‘Baar Baar Dekho’ will be close to a superhit, and will set the cash registers ringing. But it was all a matter of great expectations. Baar Baar Dekho Box Office Day 1 earning was about 6.81 crores.

And the second day, that is Saturday, didn’t see any major hike in the collections either. Day 2 Baar Baar Dekho Box Office was about 7.65 crores. This totals to a sum of about 14.46 crores in two days.

Despite a drop-dead gorgeous couple, a new time-travel theme (although taken highly from Hollywood flicks), many blockbuster songs, such meagre collections came across as nothing less than disappointing. Also, Sidharth and Katrina’s bankability at the Box Office is about above average. Hence, we had expected more. Critics’ report is that the two have not been able to execute a decently written script well due to lack of expressions, etc.

BUDGET TALK
Nitya Mehra’s ‘Baar Baar Dekho’ has been made on a budget of about Rs 50 crores. As per reports, the production cost was close to 38 crores and the rest 12 crores were splurged on the promotions. Going by the first 2 days Box Office Report, looks like it will take the film a few more days to recover its production cost, and only after that can we come to discussing the profit percentage. The first Sunday’s earnings, for sure, will be a great determinant in this case.
