Anushka Sharma is back. After the underwhelming box office performance of Jab Harry Met Sejal, she must have a lot of expectations from Pari. Directed by Prosit Roy, this film also stars Parambrata Chatterjee and Rajat Kapoor.
According to early estimates, Pari raked in around Rs 6 crore on Friday. The evening shows fared better; the morning shows had lower footfalls due to safety issues associated with the festival of Holi.
Akshaye Rathi, film distributor, had said previously, “Pari honestly looks interesting. Till now, the space of horror films was being dominated by Vikram Bhatt and to an extent Ram Gopal Varma but in a way, all the stories that were presented to Indian audiences were similar. 1920 was a bit similar to Haunted 3D which was again similar to Shapit. After years, in fact, after Bhoot (starring Urmila Matondkar in 2003 Ram Gopal Varma directorial), this is for the first time when an A-lister actor would be appearing in such a film. It is a brave attempt by Anushka Sharma.”
Pari has been getting mixed reviews from critics. Anushka’s husband Virat Kohli called it “one of the best films I’ve seen in a long time” and said that it was her “best work ever”.
Whether the film picks up over the weekend or fizzles out at the box office, remains to be seen. You can share your feary experience after watching this movie in the below comment section.
