Tara Sutaria and Siddharth Malhotra starrer ‘Marjaavaan’ opened to negative reviews by the film critics. The film has been termed as a stale production force-fitted in 2019 when it belongs in the 80’s era.
But despite the negative remarks, the film has managed to entertain a certain section of the movie-watching society. ‘Marjaawaan’ collected 7.03 crores on the release day itself and 7.21 Crore on Saturday. These collections are considered quite good for a film that is made on the paper-thin plotline with too many unpleasing one-liners.
Additionally, the Milap Milan Zaveri film has performed exceptionally well in single screens and smaller multiplexes, especially in areas like Gujarat, Nizam, Bihar, UP, CP Berar and Maharashtra. On the contrary, ‘Marjaavaan’ has failed to pull the audience to theaters in the metro cities.
The revenge drama also stars Riteish Deshmukh as a 3-feet-tall dwarf son of Mafia don who cares too little about his little son. On the other hand, the same Mafia has well-trained and appointed the orphaned Siddharth Malhotra as his right hand. Overly jealous Riteish gets into a full-blown, overdramatic, cringe-worthy and below acceptable standards kind of battle with the hero.
Tara Sutaria is all kinds of pretty but mute. So, you hardly get to see her ‘acting’ in the film. ‘Marjaavaan’ is a half-hearted attempt at creating something epic but miserable failure is quite evident as the movie unfolds.
The 3rd-day collections for ‘Marjaavaan’ will not soar sky-high, instead, the film will mint a total of Rs 23-25 crores max in its opening weekend. Saturday might bring a little footfall at larger multiplexes in the metro cities but no miracle can save the day for a poor film like ‘Marjaavaan’.
Despite the release of ‘Marjaavaan’, Ayushmann Khurrana’s ‘Bala’ is doing well at the Box Office even in the second weekend of its release. The film is expected to rake in 100 crores by the end of the second weekend.
