Although this should not come across as a surprise given the hysteria that surrounded the release of ‘Ho Mann Jahaan’ but for those living under a rock well here is news for you guys. The eagerly awaited film has scored extremely well at the box office on Day 1. The exact numbers you ask? Well if our friends at Box Office Detail are to be believed then the film has packed a 1.4 crore opening day figure which is HUGE.
Now the next question you’d ask is about the records. Well sadly the film has not managed to beat the opening day numbers of ‘Jawani Phir Nahi Ani’ which with its 2.07 crore is still the biggest Pakistani opener at the local box office. But then comparing the two films doesn’t make much sense either. One is a hardcore commercial mass entertainer while the other has a more limited appeal for the masses. Furthermore when it comes to International releases in Pakistan there are quite a few films who have had bigger opening days so lets not get there.
But the real test for the film would be how it holds up in the coming few days as the word of mouth is extremely mixed. While some cannot stop raving about it others found it just okay. Lets see how it does in the next few days.
