Vicky Kaushal’s film The Great Indian Family has a slow opening weekend, earning just 1.4 crore

Box office results for The Great Indian Family: Vicky Kaushal and Manushi Chhillar’s movie had a very slow start.
The Great Indian Family, a family drama movie starring Vicky Kaushal, opened in theatres on Friday but did poorly at the box office. As to early estimations, the movie debuted in theatres with 1.4 crores, according to a post on Sacnilk.com. According to the source, the film’s Friday theatrical attendance was just about 10%.

The movie is made by Yash Raj Films and is directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya. Along with Vicky Kaushal, Manushi Chhillar, Manoj Pahwa, Kumud Mishra, Sadiya Siddiqui, and Alka Amin also appear in the film. The main character is Vicky’s Bhajan Kumar, a bhajan singer who fails to find a girlfriend despite women respecting him by touching his feet. One day, he receives the shock of his life when he learns that he might possibly be a Muslim.

Analysis of the movie
According to the Hindustan Times’ assessment of the movie, Vicky Kaushal’s honest performance saves The Great Indian Family from becoming little more than an ordinary slice-of-life. Perhaps it tries to convey a significant message, but too much gets lost in translation.

Vicky on his appreciation of family-friendly performers
Vicky has mentioned his appreciation of family films during the film’s publicity. According to ANI, he had remarked, “If I jog my memory, films like Swarg, Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, Hum Saath Saath Hain, and Hum Aapke Hain Koun are imprinted in my head with such lovely recollections. I used to watch these lovely films with my parents, and I genuinely enjoyed spending time watching some of these oldies as a family.

There is a reason why these films became major talking points, Vicky continued. They were deeply ingrained in Indian culture and they honoured the unique ties that bind every Indian family. Therefore, when I saw TGIF, I snatched it up because it brought back fond memories of viewing similar flicks. I sincerely hope everyone enjoys viewing it as much as we liked making it because it is a special movie with the proper heart.
