Box Office: Shorgul poor collection

MUMBAI: Shorgul, a film based on contemporary politics in the state of UP, is not the kind of subject that would interest or provide entertainment in any form. The film is a waste of some talented actors as well as the money and efforts.

In this case, it is not surprising that there were hardly any takers for the film and, in the era of crores, the film managed a poor opening on day one in the range of Rs30- 40 lakh. The film collected a meagreRs1.3 crore for its opening weekend. The film was not released in some centres of UP fearing protests, not that the film would have done much better otherwise.
The other release of the week, Kerry OnKutton, as expected, spelled disaster.

Raman Raghav 2.0, a purposeless film depicting gore and mindless violence, gets its undue publicity thanks to the makers’ tendency to generate it, in this case because of Censor cuts. Only, in this case the controversy generated publicity backfires. After an opening weekend of Rs 3.6 crore, the film added less thanRs two crore in the remaining four days of the week to show just Rs5.5 crore for its first week.

Junooniyat, a grossly underpublicized film, released unceremoniously, still managed an opening week of Rs3.75 crore.

7 Hours To Go is poor, collected about Rs50 lakh in its first week.

Rough Book remains very poor.

A Scandall fails badly.

Udta Punjab added Rs 8.55 crore in its second week to take its two week total to Rs56.35 crore.

*Dhanak added Rs 20 lakh in its second week taking its two week tally to Rs1.45 crore.

*Te3n added Rs 30 lakh in its third week to take its three week total to Rs17.5 crore.

*Houseful 3 still has some life left in it. The film has collected Rs1.2 crore in its fourth week to take its four week tally to Rs107.8 crore.
