There were two significant releases today – Nargis Fakhir and Sachin Joshi starrer Amavas and Farhan Akhtar and Annu Kapoor starrer The Fakir Of Venice. Let us see which film opened bigger in the morning show at the box office.
Directed by Bhushan Patel who made 1920: Evil Returns, Ragini MMS 2 and Alone, Amavas is yet another horror flick, starring Nargis Fakhri and Sachin Joshi. The film had no star value and the trailer itself was poor. The songs were a letdown and so were the reviews which made Amavas open to just 5% occupancy in the morning shows across India.
The other film was a long delayed project, The Fakir Of Venice, which was supposed to release in 2009. The comedy drama, starring Farhan Akhtar and Annu Kapoor finally the release date but opened to lackluster reviews all around. The film was a washout from the first show itself and will not able to make any impact at the box office.
As both Amavas and The Fakir Of Venice have under-performed at the box office, all eyes are set on URI-The Surgical Strike and Manikarnika-The Queen of Jhansi.
