The rom-com Bachaana created quite a buzz before its release, thanks to the film’s trailer that got viral and heavily done promotions in Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad. The film also got favorable reviews from the critics and movie buffs before it opened to the public on Friday, which increased the hype of the film and improved its prospects at the box office.
However, the real test of the film is executed when it gets released and the people buy tickets to watch it with their friends and family. In this regard Bachaana seems to have qualified with good scores, as the film registered a strong first weekend on the domestic box office.
The film opened to a low start but it saw the growth on Saturday and Sunday. It grossed around 2.35 crore in the first weekend, making it decent collections for a film with relatively newer cast and releasing in the cricket season.
The day to day collections of Bachaana, as shared by Box Office Details, are as follows:
- Friday: 0.65 cr
- Saturday: 0. 70 cr
- Sunday: 1.0 cr
- Total: 2.35
This trend is expected to continue the ongoing week as well and it will be interesting to see where does the film stand before start of the second week.
The film is also lucky not to have a competition with any big Bollywood flick at least for next two more weeks until 18 March when Fawad Khan, Sidharth Malhotra and Aliya Bhutt starer Kapoor and Sons will make its way to the cinema houses in Pakistan (hopefully).
