YRF’s latest feature Kill Dil had all the makings of a box office blockbuster - garish sets, massive starcast and a comeback from a popular star like Govinda. But inspite of all its trappings, this Shaad Ali flick has barely managed to scrape through 12.94 Crores in the first two days. It earned 6.53 Crores on day one and while the figure was expected to go up on day two it barely added another 6.41 Crores on Saturday. The film performed well across the northern belt probably since it has a markedly northern flavour but failed in Rajasthan and Maharashtra. Kill Dil has always been regarded as a rehash of Gunday and even the reviews for both films have been similar.
But while Gunday had a blast at the box office, Kill Dil seems to be struggling to in its first week itself. Meanwhile SRK’s Happy New Year continues to dominate at the box office and has managed to collect a whopping 350 Crores worldwide. Next up we have Saif and Ileana’s rom-com Happy Ending which will again feature Govinda. Let’s hope Chichi bhaiya has a better time at the box office next weekend.
