Sidharth Malhotra, Riteish Deshmukh starer Marjaavaan opened to a collection of Rs. 7.03 crores on its first day at the box office. Despite mostly bad reviews by critics, the film has performed moderately well. The film is being slammed for being too melodramatic and for not having a compelling story.
Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted saying, " #Marjaavaan posts respectable numbers on Day 1... Mass circuits / single screens very good, contribute to the total... Metro multiplexes ordinary... Multiplexes of Tier-2 + Tier-3 cities good... Should witness growth on Day 2 and 3... Fri ₹ 7.03 cr [2922 screens]. #India biz".
Marjaavaan tells the story of a revenge saga. Riteish Deshmukh is playing the role of a man suffering dwarfism while Tara Sutaria is the female lead in the film.
Talking about his film Siddharth recently said, "look at it from a learning point of view. Even massive superstars of the country can’t predict the future of their films. It’s a part and parcel of the business. I have a lot of gratitude that I am a working actor. You can’t let your previous Friday affect your coming Friday.”
The film is also having trouble at the box office because of the continued success of Ayushmann Khurrana's Bala which is well received by both critics and audiences alike. Something that can't be said about Marjaavaan.
