14sep_FindingFanny-Creature3DIt was always a given that Finding Fanny would find its audience at the multiplexes while Creature would do better at the smaller centers. Still, one didn’t expect a huge gap between the two films over the weekend at least. However, at the box office it turned out to beFinding Fanny all the way as it went on to do double the business of Creature. Though the two films were not really competing with each other to begin with, eventually the collections spoke the loudest and in that perspective, it is ‘Finding Fanny’ which is set for a much more stable week ahead.
As was expected, Finding Fanny saw good reviews coming from all quarters and considering the fact that it was parallel cinema despite stars like Deepika Padukone and Arjun Kapoor, that was needed as well to boost the film’s fortunes. That happened too with decent collections on the opening day. However, post that it was word of mouth which did the talking, as a result of which the Homi Adajania directed film managed an opening weekend of around 20 crore. Now for a film of this genre, it is a good enough start and one waits to see the kind of distance that it eventually covers.
On the other hand Creature didn’t have much going for it right from reviews to opening. Though for this genre reviews don’t really make a difference, at the least some good footfalls are expected in the mass centers. When that was minimal too on the opening day despite Vikram Bhatt and Bipasha Basu, there were early alarm bells already. Post that when weekend stayed low too with collections only around the 11 crore mark, the writing was clear on the wall. The film would have to be super-strong during the weekdays which would be a task as the momentum should have been gained during the weekend itself.
