Sooraj Barjatya’s latest directorial venture Uunchai has crossed the Rs 10 crore mark at the box office. The film featuring actors like Anupam Kher and Amitabh Bachchan has collected Rs 10.16 crore so far. Uunchai minted Rs 1.81 crore on Friday, Rs 3.64 crore on Saturday, and Rs 4.71 crore on Sunday, according to film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh.
Adarsh tweeted, “Uunchai touches uunchai on Day 3…. Glowing word of mouth has come into play… Fantastic trending on limited screens/tight showcasing… Double-digit weekend indicates the power of content…. Friday Rs 1.81 crore, Saturday Rs 3.64 crore, Sunday Rs 4.71 crore. Total: Rs 10.16 crore.”
Adarsh gave the film a three-and-a-half star rating and gave it a one-word review of heartwarming. He tweeted, “Sooraj R Barjatya delivers a straight-from-the-heart film that celebrates friendship and hope…. A simplistic plot treated with utmost simplicity, with drama and emotions [post-interval] being its USP.”
He further noted that the film stands tall given its ensemble cast comprising Amitabh Bachchan, Anupam Kher, Boman Irani, and Danny Denzongpa. Adarsh also states that despite its slow first half, the film works due to its second and third acts.
Uunchai focuses on a group of friends who leave the comfort of their homes to embark on a trek to the Everest Base Camp to fulfill their friend’s dying wish. The 60th film of Rajshri Productions features Amitabh Bachchan, Anupam Kher, Boman Irani, Danny Denzongpa, Neena Gupta, Nafisa Ali Sodhi, Sarika and Patineeti Chopra in significant roles.
