Katrina Kaif and Sidharth Malhotra latest starrer Baar Baar Dekho is facing not so right time at the box office. The film was failed to release with a great buzz and earned only 6.81 crore rupees on the opening day. The figure was no way positive to give Katrina a hope of coming back in the industry. Sidharth, however, remained as a charming figure nowadays and gave many superhit films. Baar Baar Dekho released with a large production and marketing budget which doesn’t seem to be going well.
The total amount of the film was 50 crores out of which 12 crores were entirely spent on marketing and promotion. Having 38 crores of the production budget, it would be hard for the film to get near to the figures of minting out the actual cost. The film received a severely negative response with opening day occupancy of 30%.
The occupancy during the entire day 1 remains under the mark of 30%. Occupancy ratios had affected the film very much, and it was not able to perform well even during the night shows. However, some metro cities do observe a good rate of occupancy – around 60% during the peak timings.
Film didn’t perform well in single screen theaters and found a good response from multi screens and PVR. The fill out rate remains good from the main cities of North India like Delhi, Punjab, and Uttar Pradesh but the feedback from markets of South India was not good in comparison to Sidharth other films.
On a subsequent day, it was observed that film didn’t open well because of criticism by the movie critics. Baar Baar Dekho, who got a good publicity because of the Kala Chasma song faced a total backlash from fans and potential audience. Since the release of the song, the film was able to create a real buzz in northern areas but as soon as the movie was released, expectations go in vain.Baar Baar Dekho 2nd / 3rd Day Collection
2nd day Morning shows didn’t observe occupancy more than 20% in total. The response despite having a weekend on the day was not good. Baar Baar Dekho stays high in Delhi, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh during the noon and the evening shows. Many theaters also observed almost houseful shows on the 1st day of the weekend.
A big jump of at least 50% was expected on the weekend, but that won’t happen. The movie was successful in fetching out a growth rate of 20-30% in total earnings on the day 2.

Along with the Indian market, the film had performed well in the overseas market. The response from UAE-GCC and USA and UK markets were significantly right. Baar Baar Dekho was also lucky in getting a good number of screens in overseas because of the good buzz and no competition.
