1920 Evil Returns trumps Chicken Khurana

MUMBAI: 1920 - Evil Returns, a sequel, collected the highest in a week that saw seven releases, netting Rs 125 million in its opening weekend as it drew strong audiences from second rung multiplexes and single screen cinemas. The collections today are steady.

Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana, a Punjabi romantic comedy, has not been appreciated even in North where it was expected to do well. The film has collected Rs 47 million in its first weekend.

The other four releases of the week, Ata Pata Laapat, Le Gaya Saddam, Future Toh Bright Hai Ji, Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro (revised restored version) and Sons Of Ram, which is co-owned by Amar Chitra Katha (ACK) Media and Cartoon Network.

Sons of Ram is ACK Media‘s first feature film titled ‘Sons of Ram - Heroes will Rise‘.

Chakravyuh, a dry subject on the Naxals vs System, lacked totally in entertainment quotient and found few takers. The film had a poor run at the box office with collections of Rs 160 million to show for its first nine days.

Student of the Year benefitted due to the weeklong Dussehra holidays in Delhi- NCR and Dussehra holiday in general to collect a reasonable Rs 142 million in its second week, thus taking its two-week tally to Rs 602 million.

English Vinglish added Rs 19 million in its fourth week taking its four week total to Rs 358 million.

OMG Oh My God! braved the dull period and an onslaught of new releases to hold steady in its fifth week by collecting Rs 195 million, taking its total to Rs 756.5 million (excluding figures from Eastern circuits).

Barfi! has come to the end of its fruitful run at the box office. The UTV Motion Pictures release collected Rs 3.5 million in its seventh week, taking its tally swell to Rs 1.08 billion.
