‘Bang Bang’ shoots ahead of ‘Haider’ at the Box Office

MUMBAI: The last minute tug of war for screen time domination between Bang Bang and Haider to cash in on a five day holiday weekend starting Thursday did not help much as these holidays fell during, what is known as the dull period. Both the films could not manage to collect what was expected.


Bang Bang opened with inflated admission rates which its content did not justify. The film catered action for the sake of action with the main villain being kept out through most parts of the movie. While the film registered a two figure drop the next day of its release, on Saturday the drop was more significant with around 30 per cent and not making much on Sunday either. The film collected Rs 80 crore for the first five days.


Haider which also released on Thursday with the long weekend in sight, opened to an average collection and remained steady on the lower side through the weekend. There is little of universal appeal in the film. While there are not many takers on Kashmir’s terrorism, this film however binds a bunch of family members with terrorism with each one bending back over backwards to betray the other. The film managed to put together Rs 23.3 crore for the first five days.


Desi Kattey was poor and collected Rs 3.1 crore in its first week while 3 AM is a loser with Rs 1.9 crore to account for its first week.


Daawat-e-Ishq did average in its second week by collecting Rs 5.1 crore to take its two week total business to Rs 25.56 crore. On the other hand, Khoobsurat has managed to do well in its second week by collecting Rs. 7.5 crore to take its two week tally to Rs. 23.95 crore.


Finding Fanny added Rs 65 lakh for its third week to take its three week total collection to Rs 27.70 crore. The biopic Mary Kom has added Rs 80 lakh for its fourth week taking its four week tally now to Rs. 56.55 crore.
