While Salman Khan’s decision to continue backing newcomers despite the failure of their films ‘Hero’ and ‘LoveYatri’ in the last three-four years at the box office is appreciable, the trend looks likely to continue with ‘Notebook.’ The love story starring Pranutan Bahl and Zaheer Iqbal didn’t have the best of openings at the ticket windows, while the movie it was pitted against, ‘Junglee’ has been better, though nothing to boast about.
Vidyut’s return to the big screen after no releases in 2018 has been ‘mixed’ at the ticket windows, according to trade analyst Taran Adarsh. The response in mass circuits has been good, but at other places it is ‘dull/ordinary’, resulting in a ‘satisfactory’ total of Rs 3.35 crore.
Though the trade analyst didn’t tweet the figures of the Salman production, reports claim that the movie earned less than a crore, in the range of Rs 60-70 lakh. Sooraj Pancholi-Athiya Shetty starrer ‘Hero’ and Aayush Sharma-Warina Hussain’s ‘LoveYatri’ had performed a lot better.
'Notebook' has been the better-reviewed film of the two, but it remains to be seen if audiences can help them bounce back on Saturday and Sunday.
