Released in around two thousand screens, the film has managed poor collections. Directed by Ashish R. Mohan, Welcome 2 Karachi has been made at an estimated cost of about Rs 25 crore.
The film happens to be the second venture of director Ashish R. Mohan. Sadly, Ashish sinks mercilessly as a director with this film. The plot and direction go haywire right from the word go.
The film is based on a dangerously regressive premise, with two Indians across and how things go out of hand.
For starters, the film’s content was weak and the movie’s Box Office collections started slow owing to the success of Tanu Weds Manu Returns.
Apparently, the film clocked a measly ten percent occupancy rate during morning shows.
Welcome 2 Karachi collected about Rs 50 lacs nett in paid previews on Thursday (May 28, 2015), then it collected Rs 01.45 cr nett on Friday (May 29, 2015), on Saturday (May 30, 2015) managed to collect Rs 01.55 crore nett, Sunday (May 31, 2105) the film managed Rs 01.75 crore nett, on Monday (June 01, 2015) the collections fell to Rs 70 lacs nett, Tuesday (June 02, 2015) it collected Rs 64 lace nett, Rs 54 lacs nett was the collection on Wednesday (June 03, 2015) and on Thursday (June 04, 2015) the film managed about Rs 52 lacs nett at the Box Office; thus, making it a total of about Rs 07.65 crore nett at the end of it’s first week.
Year 2015, has been very disappointing for Bollywood, with only three films Dum Laga Ke Haisha, Piku had Tanu Weds Manu Returns doing well.
Rest of the films have either been washouts or might have just broken even.
Today, June 05, 2105, Dil Dhadakne Do has released. The film is too urban and will only work in metros especially Mumbai.
The trailer of Welcome 2 Karachi did generate a lot of hope when it came to the film, but when one saw the film it was a huge disappointment. Relea...0.5
