On the other hand, Radhika Apte;s Parched earned a meagre Rs. 12 lacs on day one. The film did open on a smaller scale, as compared to Banjo. Hence the film;s numbers seem quite fair. Plus, add the fact that Parched is meant for a niche audience. Hence, it won;t be really a competition to Banjo. On the second day, the Leena Yadav film did manage to rake in Rs. 22 Lacs on Saturday, rounding up to Rs. 34 Lacs. For a film made in low budget and having gone through a lot of piracy, the film has received good numbers. Trade Analyst Taran Adarh, shared numbers of Parched on his Twitter as he tweeted, ;#Parched Fri 12 lacs, Sat 22 lacs. Total: 34 lacs limited release . India biz ... Biz grew by 83.33% on Sat.; (ALSO READ: Banjo box office Day 1 collection: Riteish Deshmukh and Nargis Fakhri s this musical drama rakes in only Rs. 1.72 crore )It is quite sad for Banjo that the film hasn 't earned as much as it 's contemporaries Seems like Amitabh Bachchan is still reigning the box office for the week with Pink.

With a very strong word of mouth, the film has received a tremendous response at the box office
Pink is not just any regular women-centric film that speaks about womenâ€™s rights. Thereâ€™s more to it than just that. Itâ€™s hard-hitting and realistic. Shoojit Sircar and Amitabh Bachchanâ€™s chemistry gets stronger and even better after Piku. There have been so many movies based on rape, molestation and thousand other things that women have to deal with in this country; Angry Indian Goddesses, Mardaani, Damini, Dor, Lajja and so on. Pink adds to these but with a special message that hasnâ€™t been spoken about yet, a message that every woman will relate to very strongly. Pink is the answer to all your WHYs about an â€˜appropriateâ€™ lifestyle for women. No woman or girl deserves to be molested, raped or gawked at irrespective of what she wears or how she speaks. Before I start talking about how effing brilliant the movie was, I want to talk to about the general concerns we Indians have about the codes of conduct of a man and woman in the society. A lot of feminists and social activists have protested and raised the issue about how a woman is judged by her lifestyle and her clothes. Parents force their daughters to cover themselves up and forbid them to befriend anyone of the opposite sex. Most of them donâ€™t do it because they arenâ€™t as liberal as the current or the future generation. They do it to protect their daughters from the judgmental eyes of the society, to protect their daughterâ€™s dignity and most importantly, from other men. Do we hate that our parents canâ€™t sleep till we reach home? We despise it! An independent woman is perceived to be open to multiple sexual relationships. The â€˜akeli ladki khuli tijori ki tarah hoti haiâ€™ mentality still prevails no matter how much we progress and how educated we are. While there is a part of society that strongly supports initiatives like â€˜Beti Bachaoâ€™ and myriad others, there is a section of the society suppressing it with rules and regulations for women. Whatâ€™s it about The movie might remind you a little of Sunny Deol, Rishi Kapoor and Meenakshi Seshadriâ€™s Damini, especially the courtroom scenes but Pink addresses a rather larger issue which is consent. Amitabh Bachchan plays the role of Deepak Sehgal who used to be a famous lawyer and quit his practice after being diagnosed with bipolar disorder. He lives under the shadow of his ailing wife who is in the ICU. He, himself, has several health problems and constantly wears a mask to breathe properly (which reminds you of Darth Vader a little bit). Taapsee Pannu (Meenal Arora), Andrea Tariang (Andrea) and Kirti Kulhari (Falak Ali) are three flatmates who become best friends. They party together, laugh together and spend time with each other while focusing on their individual careers. Life changes for them after they get involved in a fight with Rajvir (Angad Bedi) and friends. Naturally, the girls are scared since the guys have been blackmailing them ever since they had the fight. Rajvir is the son of an MLA and obviously has his ways with the law. What follows later is a courtroom drama with several accusations and ruthless comments on the girls and their lifestyle. Amitabh Bachchan decides to represent the girls in court.
