Patiala House fails to strike awe among audiences

MUMBAI: Akshay Kumar continues to fail miserably at the box office with his latest release, Patiala House, getting a lukewarm response. Not having generated any excitement at the time of pre-release, the movie got a poor response with opening collections ranging from 20-30 per cent.

The film started on the opening day with less than Rs 40 million at the box office. It failed to exceed the Rs 40 million mark next day despite it being a Saturday; it peaked on Sunday with a collection of over Rs 60 million.

Patiala House fetched Rs 135.8 million in its opening weekend.

The film‘s theatrical recovery will be meagre and whatever little it salvages of its investment will have to be from satellite rights which, again, is not much since these rights were sold off right at the outset.

In a miserable week of five releases, there is nothing much to cheer Utt Pattang, United Six, Tum Hi To Ho and Hum Dono Rangeen fared miserably with cancelled shows due to lack of patronage; none of them crossed even the Rs 10 million figure.

The one which managed to just about survive, Yeh Saali Zindagi, collected Rs 9.2 million on Friday, peaking on Sunday with Rs 17 million. However, what is noteworthy is that from Monday to Thursday it maintained steady figures bordering around Rs 8 million. The seven-day collection stands at around Rs 64 million.

Madhur Bhandarkar‘s attempt at a rom-com meets a sad ending with the film facing all round rejection. Dil To Baccha Hai Ji adds another Rs 60 million to its first week tally of Rs 210 million, taking its total to Rs 270 million.

Yamla Pagla Deewana has added about Rs 15 million to its total; its net collection in five weeks now crosses Rs 520 million.
