It was in January 2010 when ISHQIYA released. The film did reasonably well at the box office (Semi Hit), but it is remembered mostly for Vidya Balan. She impressed many with her acting in this film and then continued that streak by impressing the audience with NO ONE KILLED JESSICA, THE DIRTY PICTURE, and KAHAANI.
Now four years later comes DEDH ISHQIYA. Although Arshad Warsi and Nasserudin Shah (who were in the original) are in this film too, the lead actress Vidya Balan has been replaced by Madhuri Dixit. 

The theatrical trailer of DEDH ISHQIYA has been liked by those who have seen it, but the problem is that the buzz for the film has been quite low. I think that a part of the reason for that is that out of all four leading actors in the film-Arshad Warsi, Naseerudin Shah, Madhurix Dixit, and Huma Qureshi- none of them are crowd-pulling stars. Madhuri Dixit was a huge star in the 90s, but she has hardly been seen in the last several years, and of course she has gotten older.

There is nothing really for the youth in this film, as the film carries a dark feel and some of the leading actors in the film are of older age. The youth would much rather watch this week's other release YAARIYAN which carries a youthful, entertaining feel.

But, the early reviews for DEDH ISHQIYA are very good, so I think that the small section of the audience that will watch the film will enjoy it. This may translate into more collections, and the low budget will also help to some extent.

My Box Office Predictions for DEDH ISHQIYA:
Opening Day: 3 crores net
Opening Weekend: 10+ crores net
Lifetime Collections: 20+ crores net
Overall Box Office Verdict:  Average

Dedh Ishqiya First Day Business


Saturday 11th January 2013 10.30 IST

Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network


Dedh Ishqiya grossed around 2.75-3 crore nett on day as per early estimates with business being bad across India with North being a bit better that too because of Delhi NCR while UP and Punjab not collecting well. The collections in Mumbai circuit were low. The figures from some circuits are as follows.


Delhi/Up - 68,00,000


East Punjab - 31,00,000


CP Berar - 13,00,000


CI - 12,00,000


Rajasthan - 22,00,000
