War Chhod Na Yaar released on October 11

War Chhod Na Yaar has received "an average response" from the audience in its opening weekend, say trade experts.

The film, which released on October 11, witnessed some growth in its opening weekend.

War Chhod Na Yaar stars Sharman Joshi, Javed Jaffrey, Soha Ali Khan, Sanjay Mishra, Mukul Dev and Dalip Tahil.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh said that in three days of its release, the movie has seen "marginal growth".

"War Chhod Na Yaar collected approximately Rs 4.50 crore net in its opening weekend. On Friday it earned Rs 1.30 crore, Saturday Rs 1.50 crore, Sunday Rs 1.70 crore," Adarsh posted on Twitter.

According to Prasanth Narayanan, director at AOPL Entertainment Pvt. Ltd. which has produced the film, the movie was made on a budget of Rs 14 crore.

Released in 754 screens in India, the movie also hit screens in some parts of the Middle East and Malaysia. The makers are hopeful that the response to the film will improve over the week.

"I think the movie will pick up in the coming days," Narayanan said.

However, Bollywood's last big release - Abhinav Kashyap-directed Besharam - which was released on October 2 has failed to evoke the desired response.

Made on a budget of Rs 60 crore plus, Besharam crashed completely, said Adarsh.

"It has collected approximately Rs 3.10 crore net in weekend two. Grand total is Rs 58.46 crore net. Flop," he added.

A source from a leading multiplex chain also said that Besharam didn't put up even an average performance.
