Happy Bhag Jayegi has done decently in first day (Friday) at box office. Film collected around 2.3 crore nett on day one.
Film started poorly in Morning shows. Film remained in lower level in Noon shows. However film saw decent to good growth from Evening onward. Now film needs to see growth through the weekend to post any kind of respectable total.
Good part of HBJ is film is made on low budget and if film shows even a decent trending through the first weekend, then it has a chance to recover the investment. As for film word of mouth it is mixed to decent which is not that bad in fact.
