'Ek Thi Daayan' falters at box office despite decent reviews
Surprisingly, Ekta Kapoor’s Emraan-Konkona-Kalki-Huma starrer Ek Thi Daayan has not opened up to the mark at ticket windows in India where it released this morning.
The opening was in the region of 30-40% (Box Office India), perhaps because it hasn’t been marketed in the way a usual Hashmi starrer is i.e. high on thrills and sexual content.
The reviews of the film, however are good, and that may pull it through:
“Not a cult film, the film deserves a pat only for the powerful performances of Konkona and Emraan….” – koimoi.com
“Exceptionally novel and attention-grabbing, it's a first of its kind. Watch it for the sheer novelty it puts on display in its genre!” - Taran Adarsh
“The screen holds your attention but sometimes the scale doesn’t match the film’s ambition…” – Mayank Shankar
