Bollywood What's Happenin'

"London Paris New York" recovers 7.5 cr in first week

The Fox Star Studios and Rose Movies fresh rom-com, London Paris New York, released on 3rd of March. It is a delightfully unconventional movie, as acclaimed trade analyst and critic Taran Adarsh puts it. With a steady but encouraging opening, the movie has managed to collect over 7.5 crore in the opening week.

Unlike usual Bollywood rom-coms that have a hotchpotch of characters, London Paris New York relies heavily on conversational relationship of two individuals in three meetings. The leading couple of the movie, Ali Zafar and Aditi Rao are the only major characters which makes this movie something more than an average standard rom-com. The film’s deviation from the ordinary, shorter length and refreshingly new concept is already getting thumbs up from fans and critics. Last week Karan Johar, Abhishek Bachchan and Hrithik Roshan tweeted about the film calling it “a movie to fall in love with”. The film’s music, directed and produced by Ali Zafar, is also talk of the town with 3 songs already listed in top 10 charts.

The urban youth is responding well to the film, which can be guaged by the fact that Sunday showed a hike in figures as compared to the opening Friday. This low budget film that was targeted at a niche market has already recovered its initial cost. The CEO of Fox, Vijay Singh, confirmed to IBN live “Well on its way to recovering its investment, the film that was made on a budget of Rs 7 crores has already grossed Rs 7.5 crore worldwide over the weekend”.

What did all of you think of the movie?  Have you seen it?
