Box Office: 'Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2' takes Rs 21 crore in opening weekend

MUMBAI: 'It is the season for small budget comedies be it about romance or sex. Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2 appeals hugely to youth and proves that a film has to be youth oriented for they are the ones who guarantee a decent opening at the box office and also spread good or bad word of mouth.


Despite very limited promotions, the film took an impressive opening and the figures reflect the fact. The film only showed a marked rise in collections on Saturday and Sunday. And, despite being Navratri period, which is not the best of times for a new release, especially one counting mainly on its youth appeal. The film collected a heartening Rs 20.8 crore in its opening weekend.


Wedding Pullav is poor and failed to get footfalls through its opening weekend.


On the other hand, Jazbaa, a comeback film for Aishwarya Rai Bachchan after a five year break and an expected hat-trick for Irrfan Khan, who has given two much appreciated films in Piku andTalvar, falls prey to its bad scripting and inapt handling. The film could not sustain its collection after its opening weekend and the figures dropped through the week. The film could manage to put together just Rs 20.6 crore for its first week.


Singh Is Bliing loses the plot in its second week with the collections dropping by a major chunk as the film collects Rs 10.5 crore to take its two week total to Rs 72.65.


Talvar maintains a strong trend in its second week cashing in on the appreciation received. The film collects Rs 10.5 crore to take its two week tally to Rs 26 crore.


Kapil Sharma's Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon has added Rs 75 lakh in its third week to take its three week total to Rs 43.95 crore making a star out of the TV comedian in the process.
