Fan has a reasonable opening, Ki & Ka still strong

MUMBAI: Fan had a reasonable opening though the viewers’ reports were not going in its favour. The public holiday on the occasion of Ram Navami on Friday and enhanced admission rates by as much as 20 to 25 per cent at many cinemas helped the film to put together Rs 19.2 crore on the first day.

The word of mouth being mixed, the collections showed a drop to the tune of nearly Rs 4 crore. On Sunday, the film did as little compared to Saturday to end its opening weekend with a total of Rs 52.35 crore. However, after bringing down the admission rates to normal from today, the film has been showing noticeable decline in footfalls.

Love Games failed to attract the audience with skin show as its main attraction. With poor face value and a rundown story, it falls further after a low opening weekend managing to add less than Rs 1 crore over its next four days of the week to show just Rs 3.9 crore for its first week.

Club Dancer fared miserably to make its first week also its last. 

Jungle Book, with its combined versions, has done better than the lifetime box office of many takings of many midrange Hindi films. The film has been lapped up by all strata of audience and also drawing repeat audience. After an impressive weekend, Jungle Book remained rock steady through its first week to collect about Rs 74 crore. It is expected to continue its good run in the second week as well.

Ki & Ka has maintained good collections in its second week. It collected Rs 11.8 crore to take its two week tally to Rs 49.25 crore.

Kapoor & Sons has collected Rs 1.6 crore in its fourth week to take its four week total to Rs 71.9 crore.
