Box Office :Indifferent

MUMBAI: The week had a lineup of releases, mostly irrelevant and unpublicized. Strange, how they were expected to draw audience! Raman Raghav 2.0 was the only noticeable release, thanks to its controversy with CBFC; this only gave the film better of the bad lot status. The other film to register some footfalls was Junooniyat. The rest, Rough Book, 7 Hours To Go, DilTohDeewana Hai, were poor.

Raman Raghav 2.0 could not breach the one crore mark on day one despite grabbing media columns with its controversy with CBFC; probably, Anurag Kashyap’s own standing controversy with CBFC because of Udta Punjab eclipsed Raman Raghav 2.0.

The film collected Rs85 lakh on day one, adding a little extra to cross the Rs One crore mark on Saturday and Sunday being static, it ended its opening weekend with Rs3.6 crore.
Junooniyat, though on a very low side, made its presence felt at the box office by collecting Rs2.3 crore for its first weekend.

Udta Punjab did its most in its opening weekend with collections of Rs33.75 crore but failed to sustain Monday onwards as, over the next four days, the film managed to collect barely 50 percent of its weekend figures of Rs 14.05 crore, to take its first week total to Rs47.8 crore.

Dhanak, despite positive word of mouth, remained a low grosser. The film collectedRs1.25 crore for its first week.

Te3n, after an indifferent first week reception at the box office, goes for a free fall in its second week. The film collectedRs2.1 crore in its second week taking its two week tally to Rs17.2 crore.

Do Lafzon Ki Kahaniadded Rs25 lakh in its second week to take its two week total to Rs3.65 crore.

Houseful 3 saw through its third week with Rs3.5 crore taking its three week tally to Rs106.6 crore.
