‘ABCD 2’ continues to rise at the BO

MUMBAI: Guddu Rangeela, coming from the same director of Jolly LLB, Subhash Kapoor, which was much appreciated and did well at the box office, proves to be a dud. Rather than a solid script, the film looked more like an attempt to cash in on the goodwill of the past film using Arshad Warsi again as a talisman.

Warsi may be a good performer but what use is a performer without a well-defined role or a script that holds? The film remained in the Rs one crore plus range through its first weekend to collect Rs 5.1 crore in its first three days.

Second Hand Husband, counting totally on Dharmendra to impact its box office, fails badly. With rest of the cast being inconsequential and the film having nothing in the name of a cogent story or script, the film just does not work. The movie hardly makes an impact at the box office remaining far short of a crore mark on any of its weekend days. The movie has collected Rs 1.85 crore for its opening three days.

BezubanIshq struggles through a legal hurdle and change of distributor before it finally sees the arc light. The film, budgeted at Rs 5 crore initially, finally reaches the cinemas at a cost of Rs 18 crore to face a disastrous fate. 

Miss Tanakpur Haazir Ho fares poorly. Catering to no particular set of audience, the film manages to collect a poor Rs 1.4 crore in its first week.

ABCD 2 holds strongly in its second week backed by youth audience and finding favour with the elite multiplex crowd. The film has added a healthy Rs 24.9 crore taking its two week total to Rs 96.05 crore.

Hamari Adhuri Kahani drops to a meager Rs 1.35 crore in its third week to take its three week tally to Rs 32.3 crore.

Dil Dhadakne Do adds Rs 1.45 crore in its fourth week taking its four week total to Rs 75.1 crore.

Tanu Weds Manu continues to regale the audience in its sixth week. The film collects Rs 1.8 crore to take its six week total to Rs 151.42 crore.
