Once again word of mouth has played a significant role in determining Box Office collections of a Bollywood film. Half Girlfriend was greeted with average reviews right from the start. The film received mixed responses from the audience. On the other hand, Hindi Medium was received very well. The film managed to grow well during its first weekend and stayed steady during weekdays.
Both the films have entered their second week, and Hindi Medium has finally crossed Half Girlfriend. Hindi Medium brought in 2.20 crores while Half Girlfriend managed to collect one crore. The difference between the collections is noticeable. Hindi Medium now stands at a total of 39.55 crores. Being a mid-budget film, Hindi Medium has impressed everyone. The film will aim to cross the 50 crore mark in its third week.
The story of Half Girlfriend has been disappointing since the start. Before the release, everyone thoughts that the film would easily cross the 100 crore mark. The numbers came down to 70 crore lifetime, but as of now, even that looks hard to achieve. The movie now stands at a total 56.30 crores. Half Girlfriend will eventually cross the 60 crore mark, but it will be interesting to see if it will get close to 70 crores.
Hindi Medium is a comedy-drama film which features Irrfan Khan and Saba Qamar in lead roles. Half Girlfriend has Shraddha Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor in lead roles.
