Batla House Review (Box Office) : Expectations
John Abraham has been giving back to back hits at the Box Office in past some years. His script sense has shown growth and Batla House seems like just a fresh addition to his list of successful films. The trailers were promising and to make the things even more bright, it has released on Independence Day.
Batla House Review (Box Office) : Impact
The film is based on a real life controversial case and sheds much deserved light on it. In a very gripping way, the film takes you on a thrilling ride where you continuously look for the truth. As the drama builds up and reaches the end, you feel pretty satisfied as an audience.
There are some scenes like the pre-interval scene in Nizampur, the interrogation scene where John translates an Aayat from Holy Quran to alleged terrorist, the court drama and scene just before the end which will make your Paisa Wasool.
Also the whole romantic angle between hero and his wife is so well crafted. It rarely happens when you like to watch the romance in thrillers like these and it’s beautiful because the angle actually adds to the screenplay.
Nora Fatehi’s song is a treat for masses.
Talking about the performances, John Abraham shows immense growth as an actor. He acts ably and brings out the vulnerabilities of his character very well. He is in terrific form and it’s so good to watch him on big screen at this stage of his career.
Mrunal Thakur lends good support as she plays the wife of John’s character.
Batla House Review (Box Office) : Prospects
Batla House is yet another big Hit in John’s career. The film will face competition from Mission Mangal but has high chances of crossing 100 crores mark.
BH can do a lifetime business somewhere in 90-110 crores range.
