Behen Hogi Teri box-office collection day 1: The rom-com of Gattu (Rajkumar Rao) and Binny (Shruti Hassan) hit the Indian screens this Friday but failed to take-off. The film only minted 32 lakhs on its opening day, as per the figures released by Bollywood Hungama. In this era of box-office giants, this attempt of placing a ‘cliched-juvenile-love story ‘ on the silver screen seems to be outcasted by the audiences. The story seems to be from the past era, where boys used to get into their safe-houses on the Raksha Bandhan, swear each other with childish curses and cry for the money to buy love.
Even after 2 hour long self-less efforts, Gattu finds himself to be labeled as the childhood rakhi-brother of Binny, and the story revolves nearby. The rom-com was carried by the face of the critically-acclaimed actor Rajkumar Rao, and the bylanes of Lucknow. However, Rao’s talent wasn’t used properly in the movie.
Film analyst, Taran Adarsh tweeted that Ajay K Pannalal directorial flick, released on 727 screens across India on this Friday, June 9. The movie clashed with the much advertised Raabta of Sushant Singh Rajput on the silver screen and seems to be lacking behind the ‘masala flick’, again. So far, mixed reviews have come from the theaters across India. Some watched it for Rajkumar Rao while others for the Shruti Hasan, some felt the drag in this tangled tale while others enjoyed the same factor.

Experts listed a number of reasons for the box-office failure on its first day of release. Many credited its collection failure to the Hollywood giants, running on the screen at the same time including a little domestic Baywatch. The Mummy, Pirates of the Caribbean and Sachin: A Billion Dream also assisted in burying down Rao’s rom-com. This light-hearted take on the infamous style of suburban Indian love story is looking forward the upcoming days to get a better response.
