Paan Sing Tomar nets Rs 40 mn at BO in dull week

MUMBAI: The week was crowded with as many as four releases, despite a dull period. While all the films had poor or nil opening response, Paan Singh Tomar seems to have found some favour with the audience.

The athlete-turned-dacoit film opened poorly on Friday with figures well under Rs 10 million; however, the second day showed a marked improvement with Sunday collections more than doubling. The film closed its first weekend with a little over Rs 40 million.

London Paris New York had an unimpressive opening coming as it does during exams and, hence, missed out on its target audience. The film could not manage to improve much during the weekend to finish with Rs 34 million.

Diary of a Butterfly and Will You Marry Me found no takers.

Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya collected Rs 112 million in its first week; most of it came from the first three days. Jodi Breakers slid further after the weekend to collect Rs 84 million in its first week.

Ekk Deewana Tha, Married To America and ? (Question Mark) showed a token presence in their second week.

Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu collected Rs 13.5 million in its third week to take its three-week tally to Rs 406.5 million; released as a joint venture between the producer and Hiralaxmi Films with the all-India theatrical price determined at Rs 250 million, the film may fall short by about Rs 50 million.

Agneepath added Rs 5 million in its fifth week to take its total collections to Rs 1.20 billion.
