Bareilly Ki Barfi Box Office Collection: Ayushman Khurrana, Rajkummar Rao, Kriti Sanon starrer Bareilly Ki Barfi is was considered to be Bollywood’s underdog this month. However it has managed to shock with its earnings. Three weeks on and the movie is still going strong. The movie which was made on a lean budget has done quite well proving the power of great plot and a strong cast. The movie has by far made Rs 30 crore at the box office. It had started with a modest 2.42 crore on day one, Rs 11.52 crore on the opening week and Rs 18.72 crore by end of week one.
The movie is living proof that no big publicity can rescue your movie if it has a weak plot or a weak cast. The movie is probably cashing on Rajkummar Rao’s mind blowing performance. The actor stunned the audience with his dual role in the movie. Other than Rajkkumar Rao, Pankaj Tripathi who is playing the Kriti Sanon’s father in the movie has also been able to impress the masses with his subtle yet powerful dialogue delivery and comic timings.
Other than having a powerful cast and plot, the movie was also a bit experimentative. Unlike most mainstream movies, Bareilly ki Barfi did not have a single protagonist or an anti protagonist, what it had were actors shifting characters throughout the movie and that proved to be the winning streak for this Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari’s flick. From Seema Pahwa who plays Sanon’s mother in the plot to Ayushmann Khurrana, most of the characters in the film undergo a personal journey and in the process, enriching the plot.
