Half Girlfriend Hit or Flop : Budget, Economics, Box Office Prediction. Half Girlfriend is all set to release on 19th May. Here is our predictions on the opening (1st) day, 1st weekend & 1st week box office collection regarding the film. The movie stars Arjun Kapoor, Shraddha Kapoor in lead roles.
The trailer received a decent response but the music has worked really well. Songs like ‘Baarish’ and ‘Phir Bhi Tumko Chahunga’ have worked really well and they have climbed up the ladder on the music charts. Chetan Bhagat’s novels are got a good following among the youths and that should be a major plus for the film.
Economics wise, it is a safe film for the producers but the trade is all about domestic performance and the perception. It is a very important film for Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor. Arjun Kapoor has managed to gain some momentum with Ki & Ka and will want to continue that where as Shraddha Kapoor is coming off a string of failures and she will want to get back to her A- Game. This is also an important film for Mohit Suri because he is coming of a failure like Hamari Adhuri Kahani and this film is expected to be his comeback.
We had a chat with Leading Exhibitor Akshaye Rathi on Half Girlfriend and here is what he has to say about the film.
Half Girlfriend has a interesting cast and crew attached to it. The combined might of Mohit Suri, his music, popularity of Chetan Bhagat among the youths and the pairing of Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor should help it take a good start at the box office. The film is targeted towards the urban youth and the youth in Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities and it has the possibility of doing well because of the subject
All the movies based of Chetan Bhagat’s novels have been received well as a film and they have successful at the box office. I am hoping Half Girlfriend continues that streak of his success.
The film is the first major release after the IPL and before the month of Ramzan so both these factors should accentuate the numbers if the content is good.
