Arjun Kapoor-Parineeti Chopra starrer Namaste England and Ayushmann Khurrana- Sanya Malhotra starrer Badhaai Ho are both seeing an advanced release due to Dusshehra, which makes quite sense because now they get a four day long weekend to please the audience.
All the last week released movies have seen a downfall, except Tumbbad but the exhibitors will benefit from bringing in new films, a day early. Badhaai Ho and Namaste England, both are family entertainers and will surely be loved by the audience over this auspicious festive season!
Let’s begin with Vipul Shah’s Namaste England. The movie is expected to have a good opening because Vipul Shah is making back on the director's chair with the franchise of Namaste London, which is still loved today! Featuring Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra in the lead roles might turn out to be beneficial as well. Going by the promotions, songs and promos that have been revealed, everything looks fair but when it could have been better. And they shouldn’t except any more than Rs. 6 crores.
Moving on to Amit Sharma's Badhaai Ho, Ayushmann and Sanya can never disappoint us. My personal recommendation for you this week is Badhaai Ho as it is a fresh new movie with a quirky storyline. The film also features Neena Gupta, Sheeba Chaddha and Surekha Sikri which just makes it better! The movie is expected to see a good opening with somewhere cross to the double digit, maybe Rs. 8-8.5 crores but till then let's keep our fingers crossed!
Nonetheless, both the movies are a must watch this week because hello festivals and long weekend!
