Sunny Deol starrer action packed film ‘Ghayal Once Again’ has yesterday hit the screens. This is the most ambitious film of Sunny, who has given his 2 years to this project, but Day one of the film at the box office was not upto the expectations of the makers. It has only collected Rs 7.20 crore, which is considered as a moderate start.
‘Ghayal Once Again’ is the sequel of Sunny’s 1990 hit action-drama ‘Ghayal’, that was the blockbuster. The makers have tried their best to co-relate this second installment with the earlier one, but they have failed to match up the similar heights what ‘Ghayal’ achieved. Although, Sunny this time has taken the extra responsibility of writing and direction of the film but the critics had not given positive response to this action-packed film.
On day one, the occupancies were around 40-50 percent and there was not seen any kind of buzz about Sunny’s film as it was happened earlier. Akshay Kumar starrer ‘Airlift’ is still strong after its 3rd week and giving tough fight to ‘Ghayal Once Again’. The other release of the week ‘Sanam Teri Kasam’ had got average reviews and done just par business on day one.
It has said that Sunny has invested a big amount of his life in making of this film and he had to mortgage his Mumbai studio for the film but the way day one went, it is not good news for Sunny as he had expected more than this.
Now, all eyes are on coming weekend which is very crucial for ‘Ghayal Once Again’ and Sunny. The collections would surely gone better and anything around Rs 30 crore plus weekend will ease the pressure from the distributors but for that, the film has to do exceptionally well in coming two days.
