MUMBAI: There have been a few biopics made earlier on sport personalities, most with tepid reception with, may be, a couple of them making an impact and sustain at the box office. However, cricket has no barrier between audiences as it enjoys universal following.

To add to the delight of the lovers of cricket, M S Dhoni: The Untold Story tells about the struggles of an aspiring cricketer from a small town middleclass India, M S Dhoni, who went to lead the Indian cricket team on the path of glory. The combination proved just the recipe to draw the viewers. Cricket and Dhoni lovers alike took to the film instantly overlooking all its flaws.

M S Dhoni: The Untold Story opened to an excellent response all over befitting a regular commercial star cast film. The film collected about Rs 20 crore on day one, sustained very well on Saturday with a negligible drop but held on very well on Sunday. Being a solo release after a deluge of mediocre and poor films also helped its cause. The film collected Rs 61.6crore for its opening weekend.

However, the film has shown a noticeable drop today (Monday), especially at single screens. The film was exempt from entertainment tax in UP (200 screens over two months) which may utilized next Friday onwards. Tax exemption is also expected from Delhi government soon.

While the collections match the appreciation the film has earned, the film faces a massive challenge for the status of a commercial success is its huge price tag.

*Banjo, a film about a gully bred Banjo player, suffered due to its outright regional Marathi flavor; the musical instrument as well as the flavor, both lacking all India identity.

However, what this purported musical lacked the most was what it needed the most, music. The film lacked grossly in popular songs. The film met with rejection on the very onset. Having met with a poor response and collecting a mere Rs 4.45 crore for its opening weekend, the film continued with its poor run through the week to collect Rs 7.6 crore for its first week.

*Parched will have to remain contended with the festival circuit as the film has not been able to make an impact at the box office. The film managed just Rs 1.2 crore for its first week.
*Days OfTafree: In Class, Out Of Class, a remake of the Gujarati film, Chhello Divas, goes overboard with its theme of college campus fun, as it depicts the fun few would identify with. The film collected Rs 1.75 crore in its first week.

*DilSala Sanki and Chapekar Brothers fail miserably at the box office.

*Pink makes the most of poor oppositions in its second week and sustains with excellent collections of Rs 22.4 crore to take its two week total to Rs 57.9 crore.

*Raaz: Reboot collets 1.35 crore in its second week taking its two week tally to Rs 24.05 crore.

Irada....Docu-thriller?

The title Irada comes across as B-grade 1970s and it has little relevance to the theme of the film, which is honourable. The film is about an ecological problem, almost a disaster. The issue dealt with here, though, is not as infamous or as well known as the Bhopal gas tragedy.
