Tees Maar Khan collects Rs 375 mn in opening weekend

MUMBAI: Tees Maar Khan, despite its ordinary merits and reports, makes the most of the Christmas weekend. Amply aided by its item number Sheela ki Jawani…. It takes tremendous opening at the box office; maintaining steady figures on Friday and Saturday at around Rs 130 million each. It registers a marginal drop on Sunday with Rs 117.5 million. While the weekend collections total up to Rs 375 million, the film starts a drastic slide as the new week begins with a drop in collections by more than 50 per cent.

Meanwhile, animation live action film Toonpur Ka Superhero fails to attract even kids, and Rajshri‘s blend of traditional family fare cum contemporary - Isi Life Mein- suffers on account of lack of face value and promotion. Both films fare poorly with no prospects any more.

Having opened to poor response, the three nondescript films released last week, Kaalo, 332 Mumbai To India and Payback join the also ran list with Mirch joining in despite ample appreciation from media as well as public.

No Problem has its share of problems at the box office adding just another Rs 74 million to its first week tally. In its two week of run, the movie has collected Rs 294 million.

Cashing in on open field, Band Baaja Baaraat managed to sustain through its second week and collected Rs 85 million, thereby taking the tally to Rs 185 million for two weeks. However, the film runs out of steam and is out of contention for another week.
