Dismal releases help last week's film to turn lucky at the Box Office

MUMBAI: With dismal releases, the week proved lucky for last week?s ?Badrinath ki Dulhaniya? as none of the three films fresh releases this week managed to create any impact on the viewers.

Govinda attempted a make comeback with a stale home production, Aa Gaya Hero, which had been gathering dust for a few years now. Having somehow managing to bring an end to this patchy enterprise, the film was finally released with multiplexes offering it scattered screen times at odd hours. The film will not only loose whatever was spent on producing it but also the monies that went towards releasing it.

The other enterprise Machine had some family interest at stake, though not financial. Director duo Abbas Mustan used the film as a launch vehicle for Mustafa Burmawala, son of Abbas. As it turned out, neither did Mustafa have potential nor were Abbas Mustan tuned in with what the audience seeks now. The script seemed to be a recall of their past films. It lacked the chemistry between the romantic pair and music that such a love story needs.

The third release Trapped was an utter torture. Following foreign trends is fine but knowing which audience one is catering to matters more. Expectations were too high for a non-face value negative film of 113 minute duration to work.

In such a situation, Badrinath Ki Dulhania stands a chance to better its figures in the second week, since the film does offer some entertainment.

Aa Gaya Hero, earlier titled Abhinay Chakra, may not even be able to cross the one crore figure as its lifetime business. With an opening day figures of Rs 25 lakh, the film has managed to collect just about Rs 70 lakh for its opening weekend.

Machine opened with Rs 60 lakh on Friday, which spells disaster for its investors. For its opening weekend, the film collected Rs 1.6 crore.

Trapped, the most unbearable film of the week, suffered the worst fate despite some positive words from a few critics.With just about Rs 30 lakh on its opening day, the film managed to collect Rs 1.4 crore for its first weekend.

Badrinath Ki Dulhania emerged a winner. After an opening weekend of Rs 54.7 crore after facing Holi and North India election results, it added another Rs 17.9 crore through the week to take its first week total to Rs 72.6 crore.

Commando 2 has collected Rs 1.8 crore in its second week. This takes its two week tally to Rs 23.6 crore which is far off the mark.

The Ghazi Attack collected Rs 95 lakh in its fourth week to take its four week total to Rs 18.9 crore. Jolly LLB 2, at the end of its run, has added Rs 35 lakh in its fifth week taking its total to Rs 106.55 crore.
