On Friday, Rani Mukherjee’s ‘Mrs Chatterjee v/s Norway’ and Kapil Sharma’s ‘Zwigato’ were released (March 17). ‘Zwigato,’ directed by Nandita Das, has received positive reviews from critics; however, box office numbers have not been impressive.
Rani Mukherjee’s film, on the other hand, has received a mixed bag of reactions till now. However, the film began on a positive note at the box office. “Released at limited screens  and shows, #Zwigato puts up a dull score on Day 1…,” trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted on Saturday. The buzz is positive, but it needs to translate into foot traffic over the weekend… Fri, Rs 42 lacs. #Indiabusiness.”
Zwigato earned 62 lakh rupees on day two. Adarsh estimates that Zwigato witnesses an upward trend on Day 2 [+44.19%], but the 2-day total remains very low due to its biz on Day 1. For a respectable weekend total, Biz must have a miraculous turnaround/jump on Day 3… Friday: 43 lacs, Saturday: 62 lacs. Total: Rs 1.05 cr.
Meanwhile, ‘Mrs Chatterjee v/s Norway’ has more than 3 crore rupees in the lead. MrsChatterjee Vs Norway witnesses SOLID GROWTH on Day 2 [+77.95%]… The super-strong word of mouth should translate into higher footfalls on Day 3… National chains dominate the show [Day 1: 83 lacs, Day 2: 1.58 cr]… Fri 1.27 cr, Sat 2.26 cr. Total: Rs 3.53 cr.
‘Zwigato’ depicts the difficulties of a food-delivery boy and his family. When asked why she chose such a topic, Nandita replied, “This is a topic that I am interested in because we see less of the common man’s story in movies nowadays.”
‘Mrs. Chatterjee VS Norway,’ directed by Ashima Chibber, depicts the life of an immigrant mother who fights against all odds to reclaim custody of her children. The film stars Neena Gupta, Jim Sarbh, and Bengali actor Anirban Bhattacharya.
