- Half Girlfriend clashed with Sachin: A Billion Dreams today
- 'The film performed consistently on weekdays,' tweeted Taran Adarsh
Shraddha Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor's Half Girlfriend
has been putting up quite a decent show
at the box office. Directed by Mohit Suri, Half Girlfriend
has delivered a good box office performance during the weekend and also over the week, highlighted trade analyst Taran Adarsh. At the theatres, Half Girlfriend
has just completed seven days and made a shade under Rs 50 crore. Currently, the film's collection in terms of ticket sales stands at Rs 49.19 crore, reported Taran Adarsh, who also added that the second week will prove crucial for the movie. "Half Girlfriend
had a good weekend and performed consistently on weekdays. Weekend 2 crucial," tweeted Mr Adarsh.
On its second Friday, Half Girlfriend
clashed with the much-awaited Sachin: A Billion Dreams
, the biopic on Sachin Tendulkar. Half Girlfriend
is also to compete with Hollywood release Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales
this week onwards.
The film, which is based on Chetan Bhagat's novel Half Girlfriend
, casts Shraddha Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor as students of a Delhi college, who are also basketball enthusiasts. In his review for NDTV, Raja Sen explains the title of the film though a summarisation of the story. "Riya is visibly fond of Madhav and loves being with him, but, at 19, is wary of the girlfriend tag and what it may entail. All systems seem go: She's making him meet her folks, she's using the word 'us' to describe them, she's initiating the first kiss, she's singing lovesongs to him across a crowded lawn. This warmth is countered by bewildering bouts of insecurity from the otherwise devoted but semantically obsessed Madhav, who disregards her affectionate requests to take things slow by manhandling her, and snapping that she should bed him or buzz off. She chooses the latter," writes Mr Sen.Half Girlfriend
marks Shraddha and Arjun Kapoor's first film together.
