There was much hype about Ayushmann Khurrana and Parineeti Chopra starrer Meri Pyaari Bindu.. until the film released. The film, which was being highly awaited by a lot of us, has let viewers down big time. The first day box office collection is extremely low as the film has collected only Rs 1. 75 crore. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter to share the figures. “#MeriPyaariBindu Fri ₹ 1.75 cr. India biz.”, he tweeted. Our trade expert – Akshaye Rathi (exhibitor and distributor) revealed to us exclusively that Meri Pyaari Bindu might collect Rs 10 crore at the box office over the first weekend. But with such a poor opening, that seems highly impossible.
The trailers and movie posters had created a lot of buzz around Parineeti and Ayushmann’s onscreen pairing. People seemed to be loving the chemistry which is there in the film too, but somehow Meri Pyaari Bindu lacks a lot of other important elements. Considering that Parineeti was making a comeback after a gap of two years, her fans were really looking forward to the film. Also, not to forget, she made a fantastic singing debut with Meri Pyaari Bindu and that was the cherry on the cake. In case if you have been wondering whether the film is worth a watch, here’s what our film critique Rashma Shetty Bali has to say about Ayushmann and Parineeti’s Meri Pyaari Bindu: “The film is bland and lacks the masala that is attached with most Bollywood commercial films of this genre. Characters that are superficial and flimsy storyline makes Meri Pyaari Bindu a tedious watch. Ayushmann and Parineeti are the only melody in this out of tune love story. And yes, if not for Ayushmann and Parineeti, this film is a BORE!”
Along with Meri Pyaari Bindu, Amitabh Bachchan’s Sarkar 3 also hit the movie screens. The box office numbers haven’t come out as yet but it doesn’t look like Sarkar 3 has done a great job either. So for now, Baahubali: The Conclusion continues to reign the box office.
