‘Dum Laga Ke Haisha’ opens weak at the BO

MUMBAI: Dum Laga Ke Haisha opens weak due to lack of promotion and Ayushmann Khurrana’s dropping popularity thanks to his last couple of films but, the film, being a simple and sincere theme and handling earns some good word of mouth.


This shows on its collections on day two, Saturday, when the collections doubled while on Sunday they were two and half times of day one. However, all these in a lower range ending the opening weekend with Rs 6.08 crore.


Ab Tak Chhappan 2, an attempt to ride the sequel wave, fails badly: the subject is outdated this being a sequel to an 11 year old original. Also, the subject and its lead players are no more relevant. And, to top it all, the content is poor and lacks imagination. The film fails to draw audience facing no show status at many theatres. The film’s collections remain as low on Saturday as on the opening day with a negligible rise on Sunday to collect Rs 4.4 crore for the first weekend.


Badlapur sustains to an extent thanks to Varun Dhawan and Nawazuddin Siddiqi fans and the positive media hype as well as reviews. The film ended its first week with Rs 35.8 crore and may add some more as the week has poor oppositions in its second week.


Roy suffers a huge drop in its second week collecting just about Rs 2.45 crore to take its two week total to Rs 35.85 crore.


Shamitabh has added Rs 60 lakh in its third week taking its three week total to Rs 21.1 crore.


Baby has added Rs 1.15 crore in its fifth week to take its five week tally to Rs 79.25 crore.
