Box Office: ‘Badlapur’ delights critics

MUMBAI: Badlapur: Don’t Miss The Beginning gets much acclaim from critics. A noir film with black shades, there is little relief for seekers of entertainment. The fact that greatly cuts down on the expected footfalls at the cinemas. While the ‘A’ certificate keeps a lot of youth away, the genre does so to the ladies and family audience. It had an indifferent opening day of little over Rs 7 crore with Saturday doing only slightly better. On the other hand, collections remained stagnant on Sunday. The film managed opening weekend collections of Rs 23.6 crore.

Qissa (Punjabi) was not expected to do much at the box office but has certainly earned rave reviews.

Roy was a film beyond comprehension for a lot many people. A pretentious film, it gets some fair opening figures thanks to Ranbir Kapoor and Arjun Rampal in top billing. However, poor word of mouth keeps its first week limited to Rs 33.4 crore.

MSG: The Messenger figures don’t matter since the tickets were booked en masse by the makers and whatever figures are released to the media are also by the same source (crossed Rs 100 crore according to them!)

Shamitabh adds Rs 2.9 crore in its second week to take its two week tally to Rs 20.5 crore.

Baby has collected Rs 2.8 crore for its fourth weeks to take its four week total to Rs 78.1 crore.

Khamoshiyan has collected Rs 12 lakh in its third week to take its three week tally to Rs 6.62 crore.

PK has added Rs 10 lakh in its ninth week to take its ten week total marginally up at Rs 330.05 crore.
