Directed by Shri Narayan Singh (Toilet Ek Prem Katha fame), and starring actor Shahid Kapoor, Shraddha Kapoor and Divyendu Sharma in lead roles, along with Yami Gautam, the recent flick Batti Gul Meter Chalu has started low at the Indian domestic box-office. The film released on Friday 22nd and managed to earn only Rs.6.76 crore, which is really below expectations.

Set in Uttarakhand and dealing with the issue of overcharged electricity bills, the social drama was also received in a mixed manner by critics too, which may have prevented many moviegoers from theaters and watch it.

Movie Review: Batti Gul Meter Chalu starts low at Box-Office With Mixed Reactions

The reactions have been mostly mixed to lukewarm. After Padmaavat, one of the biggest blockbusters of this year, this is Shahid Kapoor’s second film; while basking in the success of Stree, which was released last month, Shraddha Kapoor is back in a small town girl avatar.

Performances of the film have been good, but according to many, it’s the length of this film that bothers, at 2hours and 43minutes.

Batti Gul Meter Chalu has been made with a budget of around Rs.95 crore. Now, looking at the current opening on the first day itself, it seems critical that it will be able to even surpass its cost of production.

Nonetheless, it’s just the first week itself and the film may attract a larger audience in the next week. But that also seems uncertain, because of the tough competition not from the upcoming Bollywood movies, but Hollywood flicks too!

Sony/Marvel’s Venom, starring Tom Hardy is releasing next Friday in India and considering the fact that Indians are also superhero fans, it’s obvious to say that Venom too, will be able to lure many moviegoers.

Watch the trailer for Batti Gul Meter Chalu below.

Thugs of Hindostan becomes the new Race 3! Social Media Endlessly Mocks Trailer

Ever since the official trailer for Thugs of Hindostan released on YouTube on September 27th, 2018, there has been a flood of memes by many social media users, not only mocking the trailer in every way possible but also calling it a ‘copy-paste’ of Hollywood film franchise, Pirates of the Caribbean!

From the get-go, the film’s trailer, though getting praises from the Bollywood industry, is also getting a negative response, thanks to the huge similarities between the movie and Pirates of the Caribbean.

Especially, Amir Khan-who is called Mr. Perfectionist of Bollywood-is being trolled heavily due to his character’s near-similar looks with that of Johnny Depp’s Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean films. Also, other members of the cast like Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Sheikh have also become the subject of viral memes. Some users trolled Katrina Kaif for having no dialogue, and just dancing throughout the duration of the trailer. Same goes Fatima Sana Sheikh’s character as well who also doesn’t speak a single word and is seen only performing action stunts.

In the film, there is Amitabh Bachchan (in the role of Khudabaksh Azaad), Amir Khan as Firangi Mallah, Fatima Sana Sheikh as Zafira and Katrina Kaif as Suraiyya. There is also Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub.

Apart from the cast and scenes, the VFX in the trailer has come under fire too. As per the fans on social media, the special effects are appearing to be overly scattered and looking less real, considering the humongous budget of Thugs of Hindostan which is about Rs.210 crores!

See for yourself below how much love the film is getting from the trollers, meme-makers and most of the Twitter users combined, even before its release, which is still a month away. You will definitely try to resist your laugh, though it’s not guaranteed.

Thugs of Hindostan is directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya (Dhoom 3) and produced by Yash Raj Films. The film will be releasing on the eve of Diwali, on November 8th, 2018.
