Akshay Kumar and Tamannaah Bhatia’s Entertainment had above average first day at Box Office India and collected 11.50 Crores on First Day (Friday). The film is getting below average from the critics and word of mouth too is not very good. Due to well planned publicity, the film opened to a good occupancy but it doesn’t have the content to hold the audience flow. The film was promoted as Masala Entertainer but the film disappoint on that front.
Let’s see what some of the notable critics has to say about the film:
Taran Adarsh From Bollywood Hungama:
Sajid-Farhad have been an integral part of Rohit Shetty’s movies and unsurprisingly, Rohit’s influence shows in their very first outing as well.. Really, if you need to de-stress yourself, ENTERTAINMENT — with all its bizarre, outrageous and wacky jokes and superb one-liners — serves the purpose. However, you cannot disregard the loose ends. The humor quotient goes downhill as the comic villains surface slightly before the intermission. The gags and funny episodes, all of a sudden, take a back seat towards the second hour and though Sajid-Farhad do make an attempt to pack hilarious occurrences, you aren’t amused really. On the whole, ENTERTAINMENT is a joy ride that lives up to its title. Go, laugh out loud and get entertained! (Source: Review)
Komal Nahta From Zee ETC Bollywood Business:
On the whole, Entertainment is an entertaining fare but with sectional appeal only. Its ridiculous story-line is a major drawback and will make its appeal restricted. It will be enjoyed by the masses, families and kids. Although it will keep the target audience in splits, its business will be less than its merits because it has just a week-long window, what with eagerly awaited Singham Returns scheduled for release next week. The producers may have made their profit but some of the distributors, particularly those who have paid heavy prices, will not be as lucky. (Source: Review)
