OMG collects Rs 159.4 million in opening weekend

MUMBAI: OMG Oh My God! has been much appreciated thus creating good word of mouth for the film which in turn has helped soar its collections over the weekend to Rs 159.4 million.

The movie collected Rs 34.8 million on Friday, Rs 58.1 million on Sunday and Rs 66.5 million on Sunday.

While Gujarat contributed the most to its kitty, collections in East Punjab were affected as the film‘s screening was stopped by the local administration at a couple of centres after objections from activists.

Their demand was to trim certain sections of the film which, however, amounted to over 35 minutes and would have rendered the film senseless. The figures were also affected to some degree due to India Pakistan T20 match on Sunday.

The film collected Rs 159.4 million (which does not include West Bengal, Bihar, Assam and other eastern territories) in its opening weekend. The film remained steady as the week began and is expected to get some added advantage due to a national holiday on 2 October.

Kamaal Dhamaal Malamaal, poor in content, was poor at box office as well. The film collected Rs 44 million during its first weekend.

Heroine was not appreciated and the collections dropped as the week progressed. The film, which collected Rs 245 million for the weekend, managed to collect just Rs 331 million for the first week.

Barfi! was excellent in its second week with figures of Rs 242.5 million taking its two week tally to Rs 828.5 million.

Jeena Hai Toh Thok Daal was out of contention after the second week.

Raaz3 pulled in Rs 22 million in its third week despite new oppositions to take its three week total to Rs 713 million.
