Nani and Vaani Kapoor starrer Aaha Kalyanam has opened up to mixed reviews. The film, which was simultaneously released in Tamil and Telugu, has failed to make good business at the Box Office.
As per the trade reports, the combined collections of the Tamil and Telugu versions at domestic Box Office has just crossed Rs 2 crores, which is very less considering that it was made on a prestigious banner Yash Raj Films. The film was a remake of Bollywood hit film Band Baaja Baraat.
Band Baaja Baraat was a successful film in Bollywood. This made Yash Raj Films to remake it in South languages. But the film could not create the same magic as the story has not been tweaked to suit the tastes of local audience.
The good promotions made by the Aaha Kalyanam helped the film cross Rs 2 crore mark in Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu, believe traders. Even in international circuits, the film has not made good collections.
According to leading trade analyst Taran Adarsh, Tamil film Aaha Kalyanam is a disaster in the US, Canada, UK, Australia and New Zealand.
He further tweeted, "In the opening weekend, the Tamil version collected Rs.2.21 lakh in the US, Rs.22,835 in Canada, Rs.89,947 in Australia and Rs.16,143 in New Zealand. The Telugu version collected Rs.86,871 in the US."
