Farhan Akhtar and Vidya Balan-starrer "Shaadi Ke Side Effects" didn't create fireworks on the opening day but showed good growth over the weekend, say trade experts.

Co-produced by Balaji Motion Pictures and Pritish Nandy Communications, the film is about the relationship of a young and urban married couple. Made at a budget of about Rs.50 crore, it hit approximately 1,500 screens Feb 28.

"'Shaadi Ke Side Effects' has collected about Rs.23 crore in India in four days. Expectations were higher due to the star cast. It didn't have a good opening but picked up on the weekend," Rajesh Thadani of Multimedia Combines told IANS.

Trade analyst Komal Nahta was disappointed with the film's story.

"'Shaadi Ke Side Effects' is funny upto a point but then it loses the plot completely," he tweeted.

Though the trade pundits aren't very thrilled, Farhan was content with the weekend box office collection and tweeted: "Weekend's side effects for our film 'Shaadi Ke Side Effects' have been good. Thank you all for your love and please keep the feedback coming. Big hug."

Vir Das, who also features in the romantic comedy directed by Saket Chaudhary, is overjoyed with the film's response.

"Did 'Shaadi Ke Side Effects' to goof around and have a laugh with fun folks. Never ever expected this explosion of kindness. Thank you so much," he posted on Twitter.

    F.M.D. oh really?
    "She is only suited for small budget movies like kahaani."
    then she should keep doing them because she makes these small budget films blockbusters and sweeps the awards with the small budget roles.
    She is one of the best in bollywood right now.
    Haters gonna hate.

    Oh please, haters are hating here but they conveniently forget how Vidya carried the dirty picture and kahani on her shoulders.
    She can at least act and is not overrated like the others.
    Dhoom 3 had no script yet it was the biggest blockbuster
    and Vidya does a rom com and she receives flak
    Producers should invest more on making good movies that, and Vidya and Farhan are awesome <3
    hope they are cast together in future

    Funny in parts,Farhan has done a terrific job,but the film didn't stand upto expectations. The 1st part was a lot funnier! Vidya's talent was wasted

    Such movies can never be blockbusters since they do not have OTT actors doing Pon Pon... no cars flying ... no Train running endlessly, and no female lead giving same expression in last 5 movies. So I guess it was treated as should have been by audience.. Who cares for good performance or concepts..

    Its not doing well at all. Its a failure. Mondays drop in business says it all. Vidya has no star power. Dont understand why producers spend so much money on movies where she is in the main lead. She is only suited for small budget movies like kahaani.
