- The movie is expected to make a total of Rs 10 crore on the second day of business
Aiyaarystarring Manoj Bajpayee and Sidharth Malhotra in lead roles earned Rs.33.36 million on the first day. The movie didn`t witness a booming start and has failed to impress the audience with an ordinary first-day occupancy.
The movie, starring Sidharth Malhotra and Manoj Bajpayee had created much buzz on the internet with a gripping trailer and a decent music score. However, the movie debuted rather slow at Box Office. The movie is expected to make a total of Rs 10 crore on the second day of business, only if it gets lucky. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh wrote on Twitter regarding the movie’s first-day earnings, saying, “#Aiyaary has a DULL Day 1… Opening day biz is lower than Sidharth Malhotra’s last two films: #AGentleman [ 4.04 cr] and #Ittefaq [ 4.05 cr]… Evening/night shows were slightly better… Sat and Sun biz is extremely crucial… Fri 3.36 cr. India biz.”
As far as the film is about the business of the coming days, Taran wrote: "The Saturday and Sunday film business will keep me very much." The movie also stars Rakul Preet, Naseeruddin Shah and Anupam Kher in major roles. Apart from facing a ban in Pakistan ( for some reason), Aiyaary also has had a tough time finalizing a release date.
The film has not received much applaud. Film reviewer Alaka Sahani wrote about the action flick, “A veteran in Pandey’s movies, Manoj Bajpayee carries the film on his shoulders. But, one expects more from this collaboration, especially since Manoj is a versatile actor. As a former army man turned arms dealer, Adil Hussain brings his usual finesse to the screen. What is particularly disappointing are the sketchy women characters. Even though Pandey has written and produced Naam Shabana, which revolves around a woman spy, he fails to create any remarkable woman characters.”
The movie is cat and mouse chase between a protege Colonel Abhay (Manoj Bajpayee) and his pupil Major Jai (Sidharth Malhotra).
