New Delhi:

Crew, the heist comedy directed by Rajesh A Krishnan and starring Tabu, Kareena Kapoor and Kriti Sanon, has started its theatrical run with a promising start. According to a report by Sacnilk, the film grossed Rs 8.75 crore at the domestic box office on its opening day. The Good Friday holiday boosted the film’s sales, especially in metropolitan areas like Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore and Calcutta, contributing significantly to its first day earnings. The film recorded an overall Hindi occupancy of 26.34% on Friday. While the opening day collection of Rs 8.75 crore seems promising, it falls slightly short compared to Kareena Kapoor’s previous chick flick, Veere Di Weddingco-produced by Rhea Kapoor and Ekta Kapoor, which earned an impressive Rs 10.7 crore on its opening day in 2018.

The storyline of Crewrevolves around three dedicated friends who work as cabin crew for Kohinoor Airlines. Their quiet life takes a chaotic turn when they become entangled in a complex situation engineered by someone with ulterior motives.

Reportedly, Crew was released in 2000 theaters. It premiered in more than 75 countries in more than 1,100 locations. The estimated budget for the film, which covers production and advertising costs, is reportedly around Rs 60 crore.

Crew opened to largely mixed reviews. Film critic Saibal Chatterjee, in his review for WhatsNew2Day, gave the film 2 out of 5 stars and wrote: “Crew would have been a lot more fun if only they had known how to liven things up with touches of real inspiration. Yes, that’s what’s sorely missing in a film that goes for gold but fails to find a source of sustained sparkle.

Produced under the banner of Balaji Telefilms and Anil Kapoor Film & Communications Network, Crew not just the three leading ladies, but also Diljit Dosanjh, Kapil Sharma, Saswata Chatterjee, Rajesh Sharma and Kulbhushan Kharbanda in the ensemble cast.
