Shahid Kapoor and Mrunal Thakur starrer 'Jersey' released yesterday and the film has received a good response. However, still the film is not doing anything special at the box office. In fact, trade analyst Taran Adarsh has described it as a very slow and drawn out film by giving only two and a half stars rating.
Rating: ½#Jersey has an interesting premise + brilliant performance by #ShahidKapoor, but, when viewed in totality, works only in patches… Slow pacing, overstretched narrative, too much cricket [second hour] are deterrents. #JerseyReview pic.twitter.com/yT35HbWxNH

With this, the film has not got any special bang at the box office. Let us tell you that these days South films are opening in theaters for Rs 50 crore, although Bollywood films are being seen in lesser openings. Shahid Kapoor's film 'Jersey' has done business of only 5 crores on the opening day. Let us tell you that the release date of the film was changed at the last moment as the makers were shying away from releasing it along with South films like KGF 2 and BEAST. However, despite this, the film seems to be stalling in theatres.
Let us tell you that a plus point with the box office collection of Shahid Kapoor's film Jersey has been that the film has already recovered its cost by selling satellite, digital and music rights. In such a situation, even if the film does not play in theatres, then the producers will not suffer much. Let us also tell you that 'Jersey' was a Hindi remake of a blockbuster film from South, which most people had already seen. However, Shahid's performance in Jersey has been commendable and people are calling him the best.
