News Room

Vicky Kaushal’s recent Hindi film Zara Hatke Zara Bachke is inching close to $10 million collections in India, even as it faces tough competition from the giant Indian movie – Adipurush. According to producers Maddock Films, Zara Hatke Zara Bachke has made nett collections of $9.2 million in India alone in 25 days since it first hit theatres last month.

Featuring Kaushal in the lead role opposite Sara Ali Khan, the film recently completed its fourth weekend and registered good numbers at the ticket windows. It has roughly grossed $13 million worldwide. In India, the gross collections stood at $11.5 million. Zara Hatke Zara Bachke was made on an estimated budget of $6.5 million.

Interestingly, the film continues its successful journey at the box office even two weeks after Prabhas-Kriti Sanon-starrer Adipurush release in theatres. While the new film has been scoring bigger numbers, it has been mired in controversies and legal cases. The drama surrounding the Om Raut directorial has adversely affected the film’s collections. It has also provided a better window for Zara Hatke Zara Bachke to perform at the box office.

Directed by filmmaker Laxman Utekar, Zara Hatke Zara Bachke released in a little less than 4500 screens worldwide and registered opening weekend collections of $3 million in India alone. Apart from Kaushal and Khan, the film also stars Sushmita Mukherjee, Inaamulhaq, Neeraj Sood, Sharib Hashmi and Rakesh Bedi. It has been produced by Jio Studios and Maddock Films.

Set in a small Indian town, Zara Hatke Zara Bachke talks about the struggles of a young couple desperately seeking privacy and space in a typically Indian middle-class house. The lead copule resides inside a family home that houses the parents, an uncle-aunt and their child. In theuir desperation for privacy and independance, Kapil (Kaushal) and Saumya (Khan) dupe the system and their own families when an ugly turn of events renders them helpless and dejected.

Zara Hatke Zara Bachke underlines the importance of family values – the joint family set up typical to the Indian society. It relies heavily on the Indian middle-class milleu that is high on moral values but low on resources. The film manages to bring forth the tussle between traditional values and modern aspirations while maintaining a fun-filled setup.

A remarkable part of the film is the way Saumya navigates the entire struggle amid romance, trust, and even a bit of misunderstanding. She is a financialy independant woman who does not hesitate in helping others but is also not someone who’d shy away from making demands for her own desires. As a young woman who sails through a day job at a coaching centre while taking care of an entire family of six grown-ups and one child, Saumya is the balance that typical society seeks in a modern Indian woman.
