BO: ’Dil Dhadakne Do’ more hype than hit, 'Tanu Weds Manu Returns' tots Rs 117.95 crore

MUMBAI: Dil Dhadakne Do, one of the most hyped movies in recent times, does not quite live up to the hype and the resultant expectations. The film, its script and the execution took the audience for granted, spinning the story of convenience ending with a grossly unsatisfactory climax.

The film’s performance at the elite multiplex properties in metros gave it some face-saving figures with audience at the lower rung ’plexes and single screens keeping away. The film had a below average first day with day two improving marginally, while Sunday figures showed some promise. Dil Dhadakne Do ended its opening weekend with Rs 32.5 crore. The film will have to show a steady trend during rest of the week, which does not look likely from early Monday footfalls.

A number of insignificant films, most of them made purely out of whims and fancies viz An Unfold Fact- Lateef, Ishquedarriyaan, Chaar Cutting and P Se PM Tak, find no takers managing to collect a couple of lakh each.

Welcome To Karachi managed to add only Rs 1.7 crore in four days after its opening weekend plus Thursday paid previews to finish its first week with Rs 7.25 crore.

Tanu Weds Manu Returns created new milestones as it crossed the celebrated Rs 100 crore mark within ten days of its release. It proves again: the eternal fact is that the Script is the King. The three films that worked this year, Dum Lagake Haisha, Piku and Tanu Weds Manu Returns prove the point. Tanu Weds Manu Returns collected Rs 48.1 crore in its second week to take its two week total to Rs 117.95 crore.

Piku held its own even in the fourth week as it went on to collect Rs 3.85 crore to take its four week tally to Rs 78.72 crore.

Bombay Velvet ended its disastrous run in the third week with total collections of Rs 21.75 crore, whereas Gabbar Is Back added Rs 50 lakh in its fourth week to take its four week total to Rs 79.75 crore.
