This Friday there will be two Hindi films clashing at the Box Office, Half Girlfriend and Hindi Medium. Both the films are very different and caters certain type of audience. Due to clash and dominance of Bahubali 2, both the films will face a big loss.
Hindi medium movie story is about a family, who struggles from school to school for the admission of their daughter. It talks about how education has become a mere business in current scenario? It stars Irrfan Khan and Saba Qamar in titular roles. On the other hand, Half Girlfriend movie is based on the novel of the same name by Chetan Bhagat. The film stars Shraddha Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor in key roles.
Talking about both the movie predictions, Trade expert Akshaye Rathi told to a leading daily, “Both the movies are very different in terms of the audience that they are catering too. Half Girlfriend is more for the masses, more universal in context. It is one of those films that should work on a pan-India basis and hence it is having a much wider release also, compared to a Hindi Medium. Irrfan’s film will release in 800-850 screens, which is very compact. It caters to a very niche clientele but I really think considering the kind of buzz that both the films have, considering the relevance the topic of Hindi Medium, the buzz around the music and story of Half Girlfriend; I feel both films should do fairly well. Half Girlfriend will release in 2000-2200 screens.”
