‘Baahubali’ win hearts at the box office

MUMBAI: Special effects and quality of sound design have worked for Baahubali (dubbed) in the Hindi belt too where normally South actors and dubbed versions are not readily accepted. The audience seems to notice little else as the many glitches in the movie have not mattered to the viewers. The film collected a decent Rs 4 crore plus on the opening day and improving it over the next two days to end its opening weekend with a reasonable Rs 20.15 crore.

On the other hand, I Love NY, a dated film starring Sunny Deol and Kangana Ranaut, was an effort to cash in on Ranaut’s recent popularity following a few hits. The film, which was almost written off by the investors themselves, was not accepted by moviegoers either.

I Love NY was released without much fanfare or promotion but only proved that not releasing it at all would have been more economical. The film’s collections on all three day in its first weekend remained poor failing to cross the Rs 1 crore mark on any day. It ended its weekend with figures of Rs 1.55 crore.

Guddu Rangeela has proved to be a loser. Having collected a little over Rs 5 crore for its first weekend, the film has barely managed to add another Rs 2 crore plus to account for its first week figure of Rs 7.75 crore.

Second Hand Husband proves to be loser with a poor weekend and a poorer follow up through rest of its first week to collect a just Rs 2.6 crore.

Bezubaan Ishq is a total loss plus experiment as the film manages to collect barely Rs 2.55 crore against an investment of Rs 18 crore.

Miss Tanakpur Haazir Ho adds Rs 7 lakh in its second week to take its two week total to Rs 1.47 crore.

ABCD2 holds well in its third week to collect Rs 7.2 crore and taking its three week total to Rs 103.25 crore.

Hamari Adhuri Kahani collects Rs 25 lakh in its fourth week to take its four week total to Rs 32.55 crore.

Tanu Weds Manu Returns collects Rs 75 lakh in its seventh week to take its seven week tally to Rs 152.71 crore.
