Abhay Deol's much-awaited maiden production One By Two,
which was released in theatres across globe today, has received a
lackluster response at the Indian Box
Office on its opening day. The romantic comedy, which has been
made a with budget of Rs 15 crores, needs to show a big leap if it
has to recover its production cost.
One By Two, which was released in record number of
theatres across the country, has registered 10% to 20% occupancy in
both single screens and multiplexes in the morning and matinee
shows. The Abhay Deol and Preeti Desai starrer is expected to
witness improvements in its collection in the evening and night
Bollywood trade expert Taran Adarsh writes, "One By Two, a
solo release, did not set the cash registers jingling as the
morning and noon shows witnessed meagre footfalls. The turnout was
very low and the film will need a miraculous jump in business to
put up decent numbers over the weekend." He added, "Jai Ho
is expected to be the moviegoers' first choice."
Written and directed by Devika Bhagat, One By Two is a
coming of age film that is about how two people are destined to
meet, but only when their individual lives are ready for each
other. The movie has garnered negative word from film goers.
