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 shows.
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.
