Jimmy Shergill, Abhay Deol, and Ali Fazal starrer light-hearted comedy-drama Happy Bhag Jayegi had received positive reviews from the critics and these low but stable numbers on day one reveal that it got good numbers of footfalls on opening day.
Happy Bhag Jayegi is a low budget film having no big names in the star cast plus it hadn’t promoted on the much bigger level. Then also, the film had so much excitement among the fans and the word of mouth it is getting would result in further growth in the weekend.
Although, the occupancies in the morning and afternoon shows were kept low, but it had further taken a far better lift in the evening and night shows. Mostly the family audience along with their relatives have seen in greater number and they like the film.
Despite, it is receiving a stiff challenge from Akshay Kumar’s last week released Rustom, which is on the edge of 100 crore club but then also Happy Bhag Jayegi hasn’t lost its shine and keeps there strongly.
Now, coming the first weekend is very crucial for Happy Bhag Jayegi and it has to grow with good numbers to recover its cost of production.
