'A Flying Jatt' flies average; 'Rustom' touches Rs 115 cr

MUMBAI: A Flying Jatt a film with Tiger Shroff playing a superhero, aimed at children, gets an average opening response and meets with mixed reactions. Besides trying to imitate Hollywood superhero films, the casting of the gigantic foreign actor, Nathan Jones, as villain also makes the film’s superhero, Tiger look puny in front of him.

The film, released on Thursday to reap the benefit of Gokulashtami holiday in parts of the country, collects a not so impressive Rs. 6.8 crore on day one. The film drops on Friday, even as the Saturday figures remain almost similar to the opening day while on Sunday, the film does a little better to end its opening weekend with Rs 27.85 crore. The film will find it tough to sustain in remaining four days of the week.

Happy Bhag Jayegi, after a reasonable opening weekend, sustains well through the week in the absence of a major opposition as well as its simplistic and light comedy theme. The film collects 16.9 crore for its first week.

Rustom continues a healthy trend in its second week. The film, having added to the popularity of Akshay Kumar following a lineup of his purposeful films in recent times, adds Rs. 24.75 in its second week to take its two week total to Rs. 114.8 crore.

Mohenjo Daro proves to be a box office disaster meeting with a total rejection all over. A poorly conceived and executed film, its second week figures fall to less than 10 per cent of its first week. The film collects a measly Rs. 4.6 crore in its second week taking its two week total to Rs. 53.8 crore.

*Budhia Singh- Born To Run adds Rs 1 lakh in its third week to take its three week total to Rs 2.16 crore.
