Mary Kom earns Rs 27.3 crore at BO

MUMBAI: Mary Kom opened with a weak response despite being a solo release for the week with much hype. Media critics did not quite favour the film as was expected and panned it liberally. The film has been granted tax exemption in Maharashtra and Uttar Pradesh so far and collected Rs 27.3 crore in the opening week. The film improved on Saturday and Sunday but has not been able to sustain as well on Monday as most of Western India will be busy with the last day of Ganesh Utsav while in Delhi schools, terminal exams start today.


Raja Natwarlal is poor at the end of its first week managing to collect barely Rs 21 crore.  Emraan Hashmi pays the price for keeping on doing same kind of roles film after film not to mention this time the content as well as treatment were mediocre  and taking your audience for granted never works. Music was poor too to add to the woes.


Trip To Bhangarh, Last Benchers and Identity Card have proved to be disasters.


Mardaani held on well in its second week to collect Rs 8.19 crore taking its two week tally to Rs 31. 16 crore. With its limited budget and YRF advantage of distribution network, the film will make it to earning status.


Singham Returns collects Rs 4.6 crore in its third week to take its three week tally to Rs 136.4 yet still short of target.


Entertainment has collected Rs 30 lakh in its fourth week to take its four week tally to Rs 63.4 crore.
