Opening day earning – Since it’s dealing with a subject which is still taboo in society, it’s understandable if the opening has no standing,too low even to report,but with critics going GA GA over it, a jump should be expected.
Maybe too many realistic movies back to back like NEERJA and AIRLIFT, may have a negative impact especially when NEERJA is still toast of the box office ,no1 on audience preferences.
Baba ramdev should be made to watch this movie, as he is one at the forefront of opposing gay rights and marriages, because the message what ALIGARH showcases is that “humanity is where it should begin and end” , which is lacking big time in reality.

Hope the audience feels more alive than dead as it felt when watched the 1st part which was fun on the run, but maybe with Laden dead so is the humor.

Reality bites – Dismal has been both movies opening, hopefully Asia cup cricket , exams etc don’t turn out to be their death knell.
