The most awaited romantic drama Half Girlfriend has been released and failed to impress the both audiences and critics or received mixed reviews. Many critics called it Half Entertaining film means it’s not like everyone was expecting from Aashiqui 2 director Mohit Suri.
The film is an adaptation of Chetan Bhagat’s novel by the same, directed by Mohit Suri and produced by Shobha Kapoor, Ekta Kapoor, Mohit Suri, and Chetan Bhagat under the banner ALT Entertainment and distributed by Balaji Motion Pictures NH Studioz.
Half Girlfriend has released in 2500 screens. Half Girlfriend Day 1 Box Office Collection is Rs 10.27 Crore which is low as compared to Arjun Kapoor and Chetan Bhagat film 2 States (2014). So the film will perform better over the weekend but can’t score more than Rs 40 Crore in the first weekend.
The film revolves around a rural boy and a high profile girl gets admission in the same college through sports quota. The rural boy Madhav Jha from Bihar falls in love with that rich girl but she never wanted to make her boyfriend like Madhav Jha who is also not good English.
Arjun Kapoor as Madhav Jhan and Shraddha Kapoor as Riya Somani are show-stealing but Mohit Suri missed the several twists in the film. The director is very well known for films like Aashiqui 2 and Ek Villain. So everyone was expecting an epic romance drama, this is a crap according to the previous.
Another side Irrfan Khan starrer Hindi Medium is getting an amazing response from the audiences. IMDB gives 7.2 rating out of 10 to Hindi Medium while Half Girlfriend is poor (4.7 out of 10).
As per the Half Girlfriend Day 1 Box Office Collection, we can say the film will recover its budget easily and will become semi hit or hit, can’t say superhit like Badrinath Ki Dulhania.
