As fever of the film Baahubali goes down, we have two movies in B Town hitting this Friday, which certainly include the film Hindi Medium. If you check the recent figures the film Hindi Medium starring Irrfan Khan and Saba Qamar has taken a poor start of 10-15% at the box office in morning shows, which however, increased to some amount reaching to 25% at some places. In fact, the film Hindi Medium is trailing both Half Girlfriend and Baahubali 2 on its opening day in the morning shows and it also the one with lowest number of screens.
As per reports the 1st day box office collection for Hindi Medium tolled to around 3 crores, which isn’t that impressive figure. Despite having a decent screen counts of around 2200 the film seemed to have been a poor performer. The reviews have been mixed while the promotions of the film seemed low that has hampered the movie in a big way.
Hindi Medium is a word of mouth movie and should show better results if the word of mouth is good though the reviews look good so far. Though Hindi Medium is also tax free in lucrative Mumbai circuit consisting of Maharashtra and Gujarat. Hindi Medium is made on a budget of Rs 23 Crores all inclusive hence it has the chances to make a comeback provided the word of mouth for the films move in a decent pace. And talking about the producers of the movie, they claim that they have covered around 10 Crore of the budget with music + satellite + overseas+ digital. So, it is likely to turn a decent grocer now.
