On Friday, Arjun Kapoor and Anil Kapoor’s Mubarakan started on a low note business . The film collected an opening of Rs 5.25 crore on its first day. While, Taran Adarsh the Trade analyst tweeted,” Mubarakan had a slow start from Fri + Sat + Sun are crucial. On Fri its collection is ₹ 5.25 cr according India biz.com. ” The movie is expected to show some growth till the weekend. It has been expecting that “Arjun Kapoor” starrer film will give a decent first weekend collection and will remain stay steady throughout the whole week. However, the movie will face some stiff competition with Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma starrer movie “Jab Harry Met Sejal” which is releasing next week.
Pretty girls along with Ileana D’Cruz, Neha Sharma and Athiya Shetty showed up, the former getting in the line or may be two. The role of a Muslim girl (‘haaye haaye’) in love is played by very fineactress Sharma with the one of the brawny Punjabi ‘mundas’, and you cheer that just a little, because then hey, who knows, which might be in for some inter-religious amity. And then a comedy of errors is set into the, revolving around the reluctant grooms and the runaway brides, and the good Punjabi ‘praa’ (Pavan Malhotra) and his equally loving ‘bainji’ (Shah).
So far, I’m really not wincing. And then the post-interval set is upon us, and suddenly, the film’s funny bone gets lost. After that It becomes a very long, maudlin harangue on the family values and very good sisters and brothers, while slipping in a few distasteful jokes about the wives and women. And that Muslim girl angle? It is just a ruse, and a total cop-out.
