Himmatwala gets a lukewarm response at the BO

MUMBAI: Sajid Khan‘s remake of the 1983 hit Himmatwala failed to live up to expectations.

Social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter were flooded with jabs at the movie and the director with one of the jokes making the rounds in the trade being that Himmatwala is the first film to be titled after its viewer.

Mere Dad Ki Maruti collected about Rs 25 million in its second week taking its 17 day total to Rs 101 million.

Tigmanshu Dhulia‘s critically acclaimed and appreciated sequel to Saheb Biwi Gangster, Saheb Biwi Gangster Returns collected Rs 7.5 million in its third week to take its three week tally to Rs 214.5 million.

Abhishek Kapoor‘s Kai Po Che which has been adapted from Chetan Bhagat‘s Three Mistakes of my Life collected Rs 11 million in its fifth week taking its total collection since releasing to Rs 486 million.
