According to film trade analyst Taran Adarsh, ‘Roohi’ had a pleasant day 1 despite the Covid-19 situation. He further said that the “MahaShivratri” holiday has proved to be advantageous for the movie. Multiplexes at metros and other Tier-1 cities contributed Rs 1.89 crore, while theatres at other cities also had decent footfall.

According to film exhibitor Akshaye Rathi, a 3 crore plus start is as good as a 9 to 10 crore opening in a normal situation. He further informed footfall jumped 200 per cent from morning to evening.

Roohi has opened at 2200+ screens said producer Priyanka Chaudhary, CFO, Jio Studios, who is delighted about people returning to theatres in large numbers.

Saurabh Verma from Inox called Roohi, “perfect post-pandemic stress relief film.”

Roohi has been directed by Hardik Mehta and backed by Dinesh Vijan’s Maddock Films. The film also stars Varun Sharma, Sarita Joshi in other key roles. The foot-tapping movies had earlier created quite a buzz among fans.
