A silver lining among damp squibs

Kahaani 2, a sequel to Kahaani (2012), turned out to be only an attempt to cash in on the earlier film. The film has nothing to do with the previous film and, even the character of the protagonist, Vidya Balan, is quite contrary to the original where she was a gutsy fighter on a mission while here she is a helpless woman.

The film has failed to create the required anxiety which resulted in average opening day of about four crore. There was some improvement on Saturday and on Sunday this being a solo release. But, come Monday, the collections dropped. The film collected Rs 15.8 crore for its opening weekend.

Dear Zindagi, a film about a fickle minded young girl and a mature psychiatrist, tried a subject with little identification with the Hindi-speaking audience. Probably an attempt to find a slot for Shah Rukh Khan to play mature and varied roles in keeping with his age.

An unbearable length with no support from music or any other relief, the film showed some promise during its opening weekend but the collections tapered down over rest of the week.

The film ended its first week with figures of about Rs 44.2 crore.

Moh Maya Money is poor, going almost unnoticed. The film collected a poor Rs 25 lakh in its first week.

Saansein: The Last Breath collected Rs 20 lakh in its first week.

Force 2, despite being the only action film in some time, could not reap benefits of weak oppositions. The film managed to add just Rs 4.5 crore in its second week taking its two week total to Rs 30.4 crore.

Ae Dil Hai Mushkil adds Rs 30 lakh in its fifth week to take its five week total to Rs 102.75 crore.

Shivaay adds Rs 40 lakh in its fifth week to take its five week total to Rs 86.1 crore.
