MUMBAI: The Shahid Kapoor and Alia Bhatt starrer Shaandaar fails to find the approval of moviegoers. The film, an attempt to blend comic book approach with a fairytale setting, seems to take the audience and its intelligence for granted and meets with ready rejection.

Opening on Thursday to cash in on the major National holiday of Dussehra and enjoying the solo release status, its opening day collections of around Rs 11 crore leave much to be desired. The first day audience?s disappointment reflected at the box office on Friday as the collections dropped by over 30 per cent showing further decline on Saturday and Sunday to end its four day opening weekend with figures of Rs 30.8 crore.  

Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2 was lapped up by the youth it being a romantic comedy catering to the young lot. That the film enjoyed certain brand equity because of earlier film, Pyaar Ka Punchnama, which was a reasonable success, also helped the sequel. Despite the film following a similar theme and gags as the previous version, the film did not fail to entertain. After a strong opening weekend of Rs 20.8 crore, the film held steady through the week to end its first week with figures of Rs 37.8 crore. 

The film will enjoy a lucrative second week as it enjoys a favourable word of mouth while also benefiting from poor opposition from the new release of the week, Shaandaar.

Wedding Pullav faces total rejection. The film manages to collect a poor Rs 50 lakh for its first week.

Other minor films, released without any promotion, go unnoticed. The films are: Chinar Daastaan-E-IshqBumper DrawHogaya Dimaagh Ka DahiPrivate Teacher and Jaatiwad.

Jazbaa drops to about 10 per cent of its first week figures, which in itself was poor. The film adds Rs 3.1 crore in its second week to take its two week total to Rs 23.7 crore.

Singh Is Bliing collects Rs 1.3 crore in its third week taking its three week total to Rs 73.95 crore.

Talvar remains strong despite new releases. It braves all oppositions. On a strong public appreciation, the film returns impressive figures in its third week. It adds Rs 3.55 crore to take its three week tally to Rs 29.55 crore.
