Saif Ali Khan, Radhika Apte and Chitrangda Singh starrer Baazaar is struggling at the box office. While Baazaar did decent business in the first weekend, the film saw a significant dip on Monday.

On Tuesday, film trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the box office figure of the film and tweeted, “#Baazaar registers the normal weekday decline [44.63%] on Day 4… Mumbai circuit continues to lead and will be driving its biz till #TOH arrives in #Diwali… Fri 3.07 cr, Sat 4.10 cr, Sun 4.76 cr, Mon 1.70 cr. Total: ₹ 13.63 cr. India biz.”

Directed by Gauravv K Chawla, Baazaar is facing competition from Ayushmann Khurrana’s family entertainer Badhaai Ho.

The Indian Express’ film critic Shubhra Gupta called Baazaar an “uninteresting and an uninvolving film” and gave it one-and-a-half stars in her review. She wrote in her review, “Saif Ali Khan plays Shakun Kothari, a top Mumbai player, the king of the stock market, who risks big, and wins bigger. Till one day, he doesn’t. Newbie Rizwan Ahmad (Mehra), small town boy from Allahabad understands hunger and drive and is willing to cross a line. Till one day, he isn’t.”

“The clash between Kothari and Ahmad is one we’ve seen often, between the established biggie and the rapid climber. That’s how Michael Douglas’s Gordon Gecko got to redefine greed in Wall Street in 1987 to the up and coming Charlie Sheen’s bright new boy on the floor; Baazaar in 2018 is almost the same film in a different setting, but with none of the sharpness of the original,” she added.
