Mrs. Chatterjee vs Norway has opened at a very negligible number at the ticket window

This Friday, Rani Mukerji starrer ‘Mrs Chatterjee Vs Norway’ and Kapil Sharma’s ‘Zwigato’ hit the screens. Both the films have emerged as low scorers.

Mrs Chatterjee Vs Norway’ gained some momentum with positive word of mouth and earned Rs 1.25 crore on its first day. The film released in 535 screens and is expected to grow positively over the weekend, tweeted Taran Adarsh. 

The trade analyst also updated that Kapil Sharma starrer ‘Zwigato’ had a limited release in just 409 screens and managed to rake in Rs 42 lakh on Friday.

This entertainer is also getting good word of mouth publicity. While these two releases struggle to make a mark, Shah Rukh Khan starrer ‘Pathaan’ continues to sail smoothly. 

The film has completed over 50 days at the box office and currently stands at a total business of whopping Rs 540.98 crore nett in all languages – Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh reported that Mrs Chatterjee Vs Norway earned Rs 1.27 crore on Friday.

 The number is significantly lower than Rani’s previous release Bunty Aur Babli 2 (Rs 2.60 crore) which released during the pandemic and eventually failed at the box office. 

However, Mrs Chatterjee Vs Norway might pick up pace over the weekend after a decent word of mouth from critics and many Bollywood actors, including Shah Rukh Khan.

One film is based on a shocking real-life incident and the other tells the story of the not-so-surprising hurdles of a lower middle- class man. 

Which film is likely to score more at the ticket windows? 

It seems Mukerji has an upper hand over Sharma for the simple reason that her clout is a lot more cinematically.

Also, the early reviews suggest the makers have a winner in hand, they have struck a chord with their story and the actress seems to have delivered yet another moving performance.Rani Mukerji is back, leading yet another heartfelt story of struggle and emotions with her new film Mrs. Chatterjee vs Norway.

The film is based on the true story of an Indian mother whose kids were taken away from her by the Norwegian government in the name of child welfare. 

The emotional story of a mother’s struggle to get her kids back at any cost should have hit all the right chords with the audience but something about it didn’t click. At least that’s what the Box Office collection of the film hints at.
