According to a latest report on BoxofficeIndia.com, the film has raked in Rs 4 crore on day one of its release. The film fared best in Mumbai and a huge chunk of the premium multiplex business comes from Delhi NCR, further states the report.
‘Ittefaq’ is inspired from the 1969 film by the same name, directed by Yash Chopra. The story revolves around an acclaimed writer and a young homemaker who become the prime suspects in a double murder. Police officer Dev (Akshaye) must figure out who’s telling the truth when both offer conflicting stories about the events of that fateful night.
The story of Ittefaq, is about two killings most foul. In the new take, a twist in the tale delivers an intriguing perfect-murder scenario in which the lawman comes tantalizingly close to bringing a fugitive to book. As a film, Ittefaq is definitely more than half-decent. It is competently mounted, compact and visually classy. As a thriller, however, its twists and turns aren’t exactly of the kind that would blow you away. Ittefaq falls a tad short of being a genuine humdinger. But, to be sure, it falls only a tad short.
