‘Happy New Year’ continues its successful run

MUMBAI: Rekha on screen after a long gap does not quite manage to attract the audience in Super Nani. Her fans, old as well as those who grew up on her legend did not quite fancy her in the role of a suppressed grandmother. The film has had a very poor opening despite limited screenings. The film has collected Rs 1.4 crore for the opening weekend.


Roar, with its curiosity value and effective promos, has opened fairly well despite a theme with appeal mainly limited to young audience and has managed to put together a face saving Rs 4.7 crore for its first weekend.


Happy New Year collection figures vary from one media to another as in most cases they are guess estimates and according to loyalists since the figures are being released to media only by the producers with other sources having been blocked.


However, according to numbers  put together with inputs from circuits, the first week total for the film is expected to be from Rs 128 - 130 crore. While the opening day collections were huge, the gap between the opening day and the days between days that followed started widening each day. The film faces poor opposition from two new releases, Super Nani and Roar which will help the film with decent figures in its second week.


Haider has added Rs 45 lakh in its fourth week to take its four week tally to Rs 40.40 crore.


Bang Bang has collected about Rs 1 crore in fourth week to take its four week total to Rs 145.65 crore.
