Bengali film's box office collections in Mumbai

MUMBAI: Satya Pictures‘ latest Bengali film Bhooter Bhobishyot, released along with The Avengers and Tezz, has had a decent run at the box office in the four screens across Mumbai that it was made available in.

In a week‘s run, the film has grossed Rs 35,000 per screen, according to trade circles.

Showing the problem of urban displacement, of old houses crumbling to the might of high rises, malls and multiplexes, the film is told through the predicament of resident ghosts.

The film begins with Ayan Sengupta, an ad film director, aspiring to start a feature film and is in search of a good plot. He comes to a haunted mansion, the Chowdhury Palace, to shoot for his upcoming commercial ad film. There he meets Biplab who suggests him a story about ghosts who live together and face the difficulties they have to face in finding a place to live in since all the old buildings are being demolished by real estate developers.

He relates the story of the ghosts in the old mansion and the problem the ghosts faced when a developer wanted to turn it into a shopping mall and how the ghosts solved it.

The film, with its references to caste, communalism, consumerism, urbanisation, love and revolution, takes pot shots at various issues without becoming preachy.

Incidentally, the film, in its seventh week run in Kolkata showing in about 22 theatres has lapped up Rs 36 million in box office revenues.

The producers believe that its collections will soon cross Rs 50 million
