Fukrey had a slow start on its release day. The film has a promising new cast who gave performance like pros. The story of the film was good and the film, a good watch. But despite of decent reviews and interesting promos, the film did not do business as expected in its first weekend. A large part of the reason was actually external. A giant of a film released on the same day, Man Of Steel. The target audience of the film was the youth. But with a Superman film releasing after 7 years, pulled 90% of the moviegoers to the screenings of Man Of Steel, especially in the multiplexes. Also with Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani still going strong, a part of the youth have migrated towards the blockbuster this weekend.
Fukrey’s Weekend Box Office Report:

This medical thriller Ankur Arora Murder Case from the Bhatt Camp proved an utter disappointment at the box office. Based on true incident, the film had a promising scope but got squandered away in the process of crucifying the accused, Kay Kay Menon. The film could have been a salvaged by strong actors like Kay Kay Menon and Tisca Chopra. But Menon’s capabilities as an actor have been left untouched and Chopra was just not given the chance to shine as a bereaved mother. The film made a lowly collection of 2.15 Crore on Friday. The film will very soon disappear into oblivion from the theaters and the audience’s mind.
