Jazbaa was directed by Sanjay Gupta with a budget of Rs 32 crores and released in over 1800 screens. The film has received fairly good reviews, only finding few flaws of overacting.
The film did well in the middle east region, Taran Adarsh reported, #Jazbaa embarks on a STRONG start in UAE and GCC. Collects AED 450,000 [₹ 79.32 lacs] on Thu."
In India, the film has managed to just Rs 4.23 crores, Tran tweeted the collections, "#Jazbaa Fri ₹ 4.23 cr. India biz... Biz gathered momentum towards evening/night shows... Expect an upward trend on Sat."
The business is expected to grow over 50% on Saturday. The collections may have been affected by the release of a top Telugu movie, Rudhramadevi which starred top actors like Allu Arjun, Anushka Shetty and Rana Daggubati.
The competition in South India seems to have affected the collections but with good word of mouth promotions, the film may end up doing well and favour Jazbaa Box Office collections.
With the weekend word of mouth positive reviews spreading, the movie is expected to make Rs 6 crores at the least, making the two days total Rs 10 crores approximately.
I think Shabana Azmi was the leading lady of the film, not Aishwarya. Her character stood out the most :) #Jazbaa

Seems like they kept the best dialogues for Irfan Khan and the cliched non-realistic Hindi ones for aish #Jazbaa

Aishwarya Rai is trying so hard to prove her acting chops that she successfully crosses over to over acting. #Jazbaa

Watched #Jazbaa. A captivating thriller with a powerful finale. Slick, stylish & fast-paced, the film's high point is it's taut screenplay.
