Saif Ali Khan is back with a romantic comedy film, "Happy Ending", after almost two years. The last romantic comedy film, in which audience loved Saif was "Cocktail".
"Happy Ending" is another light hearted romantic comedy featuring Saif in double role and Ileana D'Cruz as the female lead actress. The film also features Govinda in important role.
The film has not been promoted heavily by the star cast, but the trailer and songs have managed to garner positive reviews from audience. The songs are catchy and are topping chart beat.
Though common belief says that if songs become a hit, the film becomes superhit, one cannot assure that "Happy Ending" will be a superhit film. However, it is expected to have a decent opening at the box office.
The opening day advance booking status is decent and thus is expected to have occupancy of around 60 to 70%.
The occupancy could increase over the weekend keeping in the mind the genre of the film. "Happy Ending" has an advantage as it is the only big release this week. Also, last week's "Kill Dil" had a poor week, which means if "Happy Ending" reviews are positive, it will be the first choice of moviegoers this weekend.
But due to limited screen count of around 1700 screens, the opening day total might be low.
"The casting of the film is quite interesting especially with Govinda being attached to the film as he is someone who you generally don't associate with these niche romantic-comedy films. Saif Ali Khan plays a interesting double role which could surprise the audience in a good way. The music has slowly and steadily started to pick up and the quirky flavor attached to it makes it even more interesting," exhibitor Akshaye Rathi said, according to Talking Moviez.com.
The romantic comedy film will hit screens on 21 November worldwide. Actress Kareena Kapoor Khan, Preity Zinta and Kalki Koechlin have done interesting cameos.
