English Vinglish nets Rs 132.5 mn in opening weekend

Mumbai: English Vinglish, which opened to a tepid response, has managed steady collections on Monday.

Having collected Rs 22.5 million on Friday, it showed a marked improvement on Saturday by collecting Rs 45 million and Rs 62.5 million on Sunday, a 250 per cent jump over Friday figures. It ended its opening weekend with a net box office collection of Rs 132.5 million. The film, which saw the return of Sridevi after 14 years, has caught on with the women audiences and the afternoon shows have become popular with the Kitty Party groups.

KLPD Kismet Love Paisa Dilli is very poor in content and box office collections.

OMG Oh My God! got stronger through the week and created a rare phenomenon that does not occur since the era of multi screen/ multiplex releases. The film, which had collected Rs 159.4 million for its opening weekend, has gone on to collect Rs 178.6 million during the following four days (excluding Eastern Circuits collections). This despite T20 world cup cricket matches and the fact that admission rates are reduced after the weekend. The 2 October holiday also helped to a great extent on which day it collected over Rs 70 million.The first week total collection for the movie is Rs 338 million and the film continues to do well in its second week.

Kamaal Dhamaal Malamaal has collected Rs 72 million in its first week, while Heroine has netted Rs 32 million in its second week. The collections by Heroine are below average.

Barfi remains strong at the box office. The film collected Rs 157 million in its third week taking its total tally to Rs 985.5 million.
