Special 26, ABCD hit the right notes at the BO

MUMBAI: Akhsay Kumar-starrer Special 26 opened slow on Friday but as the word of mouth spread, the film started picking up from Friday evening itself and went on to consolidate over the weekend. The film‘s performance is at its best at premium multiplexes.

The film‘s cost for Indian theatrical rights is about Rs 320 to 340 million and should face no problems making it. The film has been appreciated for all round performances by the artistes as well as for its climax. The film collected Rs 265 million for its first weekend. Some extra benefit is expected on Valentine‘s Day.

Remo D‘souza‘s ABCD: Any Body Can Dance with no stars on the billboards had an excellent opening, in fact better opening response than the star cast film Special 26. ABCD has greatly drawn the youth and its choreography has been much liked by the youth. The film had a wonderful weekend and collected Rs 184 million for its first three days. The film should get a major boost on the Valentine‘s Day.

David with Neil Nitin Mukesh in the lead continued to do poor collecting a mere Rs 35 million for its first week with as much as Rs 15.8 million coming from the Bombay Circuit.

Mira Nair‘s much talked about Midnight‘s Children has been rejected by moviegoers. No amount of controversies and staying in the news has helped the film which collected just Rs 12.5 million to show for its first seven days.

Vishal Bharadwaj‘s Matru Ki BIjlee Ka has added Rs 1.2 million to its collections in its fourth week taking its tally to Rs 393.7 million.
