This Friday, Box Office has received a major comeback of Kajol who’s last seen in Dilwale. With the Helicopter Eela, Kajol has stunned everyone with her role of an obsessed mother whose life revolves around her son Vivan (Riddhi Sen). Moreover, she can be seen going to college so that she can follow him. However, movie Helicopter Eela is receiving mixed reviews as critics are praising Kajol’s comeback but the story fails to impress them.
Besides, the movie can target families to watch it as after the Sui Dhaga, Helicopter Eela can have the maximum audience. Well the movie has started its box office journey and opened up with Rs 75 lakhs.
Trade analyst Girish Johar says, “Helicopter Eela should have a good start as it is being led by Kajol who has a huge fan base. Also, the trailer of the film is impressive and has got a positive response from the viewers. With a decent buzz around it, the film might mint Rs 2.5 crore on the first day of its release. It can even earn Rs 3.5 crore, but it will depend on the competition releases and on the word of mouth.”
“It will be a tough battle at the box office this week since the audience for Andhadhun, Helicopter Eela, Tumbbad and Fryday are almost the same,” he asserts. Adding to it, he says, “Govinda is a charmer and Varun Sharma with his character of Choocha has also won hearts. So, Fryday can lead after Helicopter Eela. Also, its chances of earning at the box office are more because comedy films attract family audiences.”
While Kajol’s movie has to compete with Tumbbad, romantic drama Jalebi and comedy film Fryday which have also hit the cinema theaters.
