Box Office: Kapil Sharma's debut film rakes in Rs 23.85 crore in opening weekend

MUMBAI: TV stand-up comedian Kapil Sharma’s film debut and veteran director duo, Abbas Mustan’s gamble to cast him in a film, has paid off more than expected. Kis Kisko Pyaar Karu opened to an excellent response even as the two other films in contention,Calendar Girls and Bhaag Johnny helped its cause.

Sharma’s debut movie opened to a fantastic Rs 8 crore range on Friday and sustained at the same level on Saturday. The movie managed to peak on Sunday. The film collected Rs 23.85 crore in its opening weekend and has already come into profit soon after its opening weekend considering its cost.

On the other hand, Madhur Bhandarkar’s rehashed idea of Page 3 film, Calendar Girls, has majorly backfired. The film has poor script if there is one, no direction and lacks a purpose. Also, the film cost almost five times to the producer as compared to what the look of the film makes you believe. There is nothing for the investor to look forward to as far as returns are concerned. The film opened to a very poor response and closed its opening weekend with a measly Rs 3.8 crore.

Time Out, a decent film with a youthful appeal, as expected, has gone mostly unnoticed. There was no promotion and awareness created around the film.

Meeruthiya Gangsters fails miserably and collects just Rs 75 lakh in its first week.

Bhaag Johnny, a poorly directed film, has failed badly with lack of face value.

The Kangana Ranaut - Imran Khan starrer Katti Batti has flopped miserably. This was indeed a senseless film with no appeal. Even Ranaut’s popularity could not salvage it. The film, which collected Rs 15.5 crore in its opening weekend, could barely add another Rs 6 crore for the rest of the week, taking its first week total to Rs 21.5 crore.

Hero could add little to its collections with a major drop in its second week earnings. The film collected Rs 2.5 crore in the second week to take its two week total to Rs 31.7 crore, which is poor.

Welcome Back continues to struggle to make it to the Rs 100 crore mark as the film collects Rs 3.3 crore in its third week to take its three week total to Rs 93.9 crore. So close yet so far; it won’t make the mark.
