Shahid Kapur PAATHSHAALA gets 41% at multiplex, PHOONK poor!!

Shahid Kapur, Ayesha Takia, Nana Patekar starrer flick ‘Paathshaala’, which opened this Friday at theatres across the country,  has received.
A decent 41% opening response from the audiences at multiplexes, but Ram Gopal Varma’s latest sequel ‘Phoonk2’ failed to manage even an average occupancy rate on its first day.
The reports from theatres suggest that Shahid Kapur’s own reputation and charm was mainly responsible for the audiences of.

The multiplexes to come to theatres on the opening day and it would be interesting to see if the same response continues on Saturday and Sunday.
Even on Friday at some theatres, the response to Shahid starrer was below forty percent but overall it managed to cut around forty-one percentage points.
The audiences loved the idea of ‘Paathshaala’ but could not like its slow and uninspiring treatment by director Milind Ukey.
The younger audiences wanted some romantic spark to fly between Shahid Kapur and Ayesha Takia(just like it was between Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor in ‘3 Idiots’, another film on our rotten educational system), which was non-existent in the flick. Even Nana Patekar’s character failed to enthuse the viewers as his character was not author- backed and biting dialogues were missing from the flick.
On the other hand, Ram Gopal Varma’s ‘Phoonk 2’ failed in its main motive of scaring the audience. As the film was a sequel to earlier Ramu’s hit flick ‘Phoonk’, the audience  was looking for some scary moments but unfortunately this time the maverick filmmaker could not live up to the expectations of the audience.
And hence the response was poor everywhere.The only hope for Shahid Kapur’s ‘Paathshaala’ and Ram Gopal Varma’s ‘Phoonk 2’ is the upcoming Saturday and Sunday, when people are in mood of entertainment and throng to theatres. Let’s hope for the best.
