Box Office: ‘Jazbaa’ collects Rs 14.4 crore in opening weekend

MUMBAI: Jazbaa, based on the Korean film, Seven Days, is a story that could have been told in a undeviating manner. However, between adhering to the original and Indianising it is ‘lost in translation.’ The film, which is being touted as Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s comeback film, opened to a meek response at the box office on Friday. However, it improved a great deal on Saturday in comparison to its opening day figures but remained static on Sunday. Jazbaa ended its opening weekend with Rs 14.4 crore, though its real standing will be determined only over next four days after the weekend.


While the film had the advantage of being the one and only release for the week, it had little competition from last week’s two releases,Singh Is Bliing and Talvar. While the first one started losing steam from its first Monday onwards, Talvar has a moderate following and continues to do well within its parameters it posed no threat to Jazbaa after its seven day run.


Talvar, another version of the Noida murder of a 14 year old girl, Arushi Talwar, allegedly by her own parents, generated some amount of curiosity and attracted a decent amount of footfalls. Considering its limited range, the film did fairly well to close its first week with a reasonable Rs 15.5 crore. The powerful media group, one of the makers of this film, is making sure it remains in the news or, to put it fairly, in controversy, so that the film adds a crore or two everyday even in its week two! The film maintained well during its second weekend.


Singh Is Bliing started off well but lost momentum from day two and even further from the first Monday after its release. This action comedy saw the female lead star, Amy Jackson, performing better action than the hero and action star Akshay Kumar, whose action scenes were lame and oft seen before. Akshay’s films have a limit till how much they can score at the box office and this one will stop short of even that limit. The film added Rs 19.75 crore in its four days after a decent weekend to show a figure of Rs 62.15 crore for its first week.


Kapil Sharma’s debut movie vehicle Kis Kisko Payar Karoon maintained well in its second week by collecting Rs 5.1 crore to take its two week total to Rs 43.2 crore.


On the other hand, Madhur Bhandarkar’s Calendar Girls crashes to a meagre Rs 10 lakh collections in its second week to show a tally of Rs 5.2 crore. A major loser.
