Barring 'Sultan', dull weekend at box office

MUMBAI: While the recent films since the release of Sultan have been bad for the trade, especially the exhibition trade which needs a flow of crowd pulling films to sustain, the next week promises to be full of hope. Two major films releasing simultaneously has been avoided by the trade as both would eat into each other?s business prospects. But, the exhibitors never had it so good as Mohenjo Daro and Rustom face each other this Friday.

Budhia Singh-Born To Run, a National Award winner for the Best Children?s film, wins much critical acclaim, but no footfalls. The film could manage only Rs. 1.2 crore in its first weekend.

Fever, an attempt to make a polished thriller, turns out anything but that. It is a badly scripted film concentrating more on steamy scenes rather than thrill and suspense. A good musical score as well as captivating cinematography are wasted in absence of substance. The film collected Rs. 55 lakh in its opening weekend.

The Legend Of Michael Mishra meets with a disastrous fate at the box office. To think of Arsad Warsi essaying a teenage romance in itself is a put off and to expect the film to draw audience is rather ambitious! There is nothing in the script or direction or music to salvage the film to any extent. The collections have been poor as the film could collect only Rs. 60 lakh in its first weekend.

Dishoom, an action thriller with a youth favourite. Varun Dhawan, providing the entertainment quotient, does well. The film had its flows and routine second half but managed to make the most of the absence of any decent entertainer for a while.

The film collects 51.8 crore in its first week. With poor opposition in its second week, the film stands a fair chance of adding another Rs. 16 to 17 crore in its second week for a decent lifetime business.

Love Ke Funday and Murder Madhuri make it to the total loss category.

Madaari?Sshhh Desh So Raha Hai collects Rs. 2.75 crore in its second week to take its two week tally to Rs. 15.45 crore.

Kabaali (Hindi-dubbed from Tamil) drops drastically in its second week taking its two week total to Rs. 24.9 crore.
