Mumbai: The latest Bollywood sensation Ranbir Kapoor has hit the bull's eye yet again. The star actor has stunned the audience again with his fabulous performance in his latest release 'Barfi!'.
Ranbir is playing a deaf and mute boy named Barfi. So, it is clearly shown that the scrip is unconventional and no 'box-office success funda' has been used for the promotion.
Even then, the audience is giving an awesome review to the movie on its opening day.
Rakesh Sippy of 'Raksha Entertainment Pvt Ltd' told that 'Barfi!' has opened pretty well in multiplexes and in the single screen cinema halls.
"In fact, the film had around 90 to 100 percent occupancy for the morning shows. It is doing exceptionally well. The film will pick up by word of mouth," he added.
Another touching tale narrated by talented director Anurag Basu, 'Barfi!' has wowed the critics and the audiences alike. Distributors are equally happy with the response to the movie.
Besides Mumbai, the film has struck a chord with audiences in other cities too.
Sanjay Ghai of Mukta Arts said in Delhi that, "The film has opened to 100 percent occupancy. The weekend shows are full because of advance booking. The report of the film is also very good".
In Rajasthan, according to Sunil Bansal of Yash Raj Jai Pictures Pvt Ltd, the film has opened to 60 to 65 percent occupancy, which is quite good. "The film will pick up during the weekend," he said.
If Ranbir is deaf and mute, Priyanka Chopra's character is autistic in the film. However, despite picking up sensitive issues, Basu has given it a light touch and presented it as a triangular romantic comedy.
Rajesh Thadani of Multimedia Combines said the opening is pretty good and that it will certainly do well in multiplexes "as the reports of 'Barfi!' are very good. Let's wait till the weekend and see what the film does at the box office".
Apart from superb performances, sound script and deft execution, the backdrop and music will do the trick.
