MUMBAI: Tanu Weds Manu Returns has braved two vital IPL matches to put up decent weekend figures. The film, while not finding much favour as it went from A to B to C class screens, however, performed well at elite multiplexes improving over Saturday and Sunday over its comparatively weak opening of Friday. The film collected Rs 38.7 crore in its opening weekend and will need to continue the good run to break even.

Anurag Kashyap’s Bombay Velvet met with total rejection from day one by moviegoers. The film ended its opening Friday with pathetically poor collections and failed to improve over the next two days. Monday onwards it was a free fall, collections deteriorating each day to put together a lowly Rs 21.65 crore for its first week. Earlier, when people in the trade cited a high-priced disaster, it was Razia Sultan. For this generation, it is Bombay Velvet. At least, Razia Sultan enjoyed some shelf value and curiosity, thanks to its music and popularity of stars.Bombay Velvet is utterly forgettable.

Piku continued to maintain strong trends in its second week, too. Being a wholesome entertainer, it holds appeal to all which reflects on its box office collections. The film has added Rs 23.8 crore to its first week figure of Rs 41.42 crore and takes its two-week total to Rs 65.22crore. Adding another Rs 6.5 crore for its third weekend, the film’s 17-day tally stands at Rs 71.22 crore.

Gabbar Is Back has managed to collect Rs 4.3 crore in its third week to take its three-week total to Rs 78.8 crore.
