Sunny Deol’s Ghayal Once Again box office collections managed to earn Rs. 7.20 cr on day one and Rs. 7.65 cr on day 2 taking the total collection of the film to Rs. 14.85 cr. The film took off to mixed reviews and a below average occupancy rate during morning shows on day 1. However, with little competition coming in the form of the other release Sanam Teri Kasam, Ghayal Once Again looks set of a good weekend. The two days collections total (gross approx.) is Rs 21.21 crore.
Ghayal Once Again is a sequel to the tremendously powerful and successful 90’s film Ghayal that had also featured Sunny Deol. So much so, that those who have seen the movie, as well as Sunny’s die-hard fans, are expected to form the major part of those who actually see the movie. How big that particular community is will be clear by the end of the weekend.
And yes, it is during the weekend that the actual script of the movie’s fate will be written. However, the lack of hype or buzz surrounding Ghayal Once Again must have been a big setback for the filmmakers.
Better treatment from the critics may have altered how the film fares at the B.O. However, this is too early to say anything with certainty.
On the whole, while Ghayal Once Again may find takers in Sunny Deol fans, the film will have to rely on good word of mouth and positive feedback to entice the rest of the theatre-going public into the seats.
Considering that Akshay Kumar’s Airlift did so well, the thinking would have been that people are eager to head to cinemas and Ghayal Once Again would be able to take advantage of that.
