Poster Boys, which marks the directorial debut of actor Shreyas Talpade, has shown a solid growth at the box office, after a slow start on day one of its release. The film, which released alongside Arjun Rampal’s Daddy, has earned Rs 2.40 crore on Saturday, taking the total to Rs 4.15 crore. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh wrote, “#PosterBoys shows an upward trend on Day 2… Witnesses 37.14% growth… Fri 1.75 cr, Sat 2.40 cr. Total: ₹ 4.15 cr. India biz.”
The film, which is the remake of the Marathi film Poshter Boyz, brings back the popular Deol brothers on screen after four years. Both Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol enjoy a strong fan base in the northern side of India and hence it was expected to do better, however on Friday it only earned Rs 1.75 crore.
The weekend may be the only opportunity when the film can witness a slight upward trend. Trade expert Taran Adarsh said,”BO following similar pattern for *most* new films… Fri morning/noon = lukewarm… Biz picks up towards evening if film rich in merits…”
“This Friday is no exception… #PosterBoys, #Daddy, other new films start slow… Here’s hoping there’s a +ve turnaround before day ends,” he said in another tweet. Going by the figures shared by Taran Adarsh, Baadshaho and Subh Mangal Saavdhan are still the first choices of the audience.
Film critic Subhra Gupta, who panned the film, said,”To create comedy out of a supposed impairment of the male nether regions requires skills of a high degree, and the ability to bung in just the right degree of crassness and jokey-ness into the film: despite Sunny ‘paa ji’ daring to bare, hawwji, Poster Boys is a poster for a film which does nothing. ‘Na ji’.”
After this, the Deol duo will be seen in the third installment of Yamla Pagla Deewana, along with Dharmendra.
