Bhaag Milkha Bhaag holds its own with no major competition

MUMBAI: There were seven Hindi films slated for release last Friday out of which four, Bajatey Raho, Issaq, Nasha and Luv U Soniyo made it to the theatres but have received poor responses.

Bajatey Raho, a film with better known faces, was expected to do well. But, the comedy film failed to provide entertainment. The film opened to a weak response and ended its first weekend with figures of Rs 4.25 crore.

Issaq, a Shakespearean love tragedy from UP, did not work either. Except presenting a talented actor to the industry in Amyra Dastur, the film proved utterly forgettable. The film collected Rs 3.1 crore for its opening weekend.

Nasha starring Poonam Pandey, despite nudity and titillation, remained behind other releases in weekend figures. The film collected Rs 2.5 crore over its first weekend.

Luv U Soniyo had poor patronage, resulting in ‘No audience No show‘, at most places.

Ramaiya Vastavaiya has not worked for the debutant Girish Kumar. The film was too clichéd very similar to medley of old films which had worked commercially. The film collected Rs 20.3 crore at the end of its first week.

D-Day, despite all the praises and positive word of mouth reports, has not been able to convert all that into cash. The film opened to indifferent response and continued to remain so all its first week to close the week with Rs 14.5 crore.

Ship Of Theseus managed to collect about Rs 50 lakh along with much acclaim during its first week.

Bhaag Milkha Bhaag is holding well and has had a lucrative second week even as other new releases could not find favour with the public. The film has collected Rs 25.65 crore for its week two taking its two week total to Rs 78.15 crore.
