Sometime back we have done an analysis on how it would be difficult for Pari to sustain at the box office, and how we wish that it would fight all odds to win at the box office. The horror film, co-produced and starring Anushka Sharma in the lead, is a game-changer when it comes horror as a genre in Bollywood. Pari is directed by debutante Prosit Roy and also stars Parambrata, Rajat Kapoor and Ritabhari Chakraborty in other important roles. Thankfully, there is some positive news when it comes to the movie's box office business.
The movie took off on a slow start on Friday, sharing the dias with Pulkit Samrat's Veere Ki Wedding. While the latter is a non-starter, Pari had earned Rs 4.36 crore on Monday, trade analyst Taran Adarsh informs us that the horror film has been showing improvement in its collection on Saturday. The movie collected Rs 5.47 crore, thus bringing its collections to Rs 9.83 crore.
#Pari witnessed an UPWARD TREND on Day 2... Sun biz is crucial... Fri 4.36 cr, Sat 5.47 cr. Total: ₹ 9.83 cr. India biz.

Pari is not the usual Vikram Bhatt horror movie that Bollywood has been watching for some years now. It is a deeply disturbing movie with some gory scenes, with a love story wrapped around a feral woman and a kind-hearted man.
Here's what our review has summed up about the movie - "Pari is the makeover that Bollywood horror desperately needed as a genre. It is genuinely creepy and boasts of some really stomach-churning scenery that we have rarely seen in mainstream cinema. Make sure you don't miss this one, if you are a horror fan and are not weak by heart. Also watch it for Anushka Sharma, who delivers one of the best performances in her career."
