Box Office: Baaghi and The Jungle Book – great run

Sarbjit, with its choice of subject and casting, was not expected to carry much appeal and it did not. With its lacklustre treatment, length and lack of soul, it failed to touch the audience. The film had a poor opening day with a marginal increase on Saturday and Sunday. It ended its opening weekend with collections of Rs 12.1 crore. The film has dropped further from today.

Azhar, a biopic on Indian cricketer Azharuddin, which claims to be based on the cricketer’s life, took the help of a disclaimer at the very start of the movie to twist and turn the events that happened during this cricketer’s tenure as a player as well as captain of the Indian team, to make a victim out of him. Not expected to strike a chord with the audience, it failed badly. The film managed to put together just Rs 28.95 crore for its first week.

Dear Dad had a poor run in its first week.

Buddha In Traffic Jam made a symbolic presence at the box office by collecting about Rs 30 lakh for its first week.

1920 London has collected Rs 2.1 crore in its second week to take its two week tally to Rs 4.2 crore.

Traffic added Rs 30 lakh in its second week taking its two week tally to 3.5 crore.

Baaghi has had a great run at the box office as it collected Rs 3.1 crore in its third week taking its three eek total to Rs 77.6 crore.

The Jungle Book has had an excellent run at the box office even during its sixth week as the film went on to collect Rs 4.3 crore to take its six week total to Rs 179.45 crore.
