Poor show by new releases

Of the three new releases last Friday, Waiting happened to be the one people looked forward to thanks to Naseeruddin Shah in the lead. Alas, the box office collections did not show any appreciation in Shah and the film remained a very limited grosser barely managing to cross the Rscrore mark in its opening weekend. It collected Rs1.3 crore.

Phobia, a less publicized film blending horror with Agoraphobia, stayed poor. It managed just about Rs1.4 crore for its opening weekend.

Veerappan, an outdated story about the sandalwood mafia run by Veerappan in the jungles of Mysore, finds some footfalls at single screens. The film has collectedRs4.75 crore for its first weekend.

Fredrick passed unnoticed.

Sarbjit has not been able to make a mark with an inconclusive account of the life of an Indian in a Pakistani jail. There was not much relevance of the story for the moviegoer. The film has collected Rs19.4 crore in its first week.

Azhar has added Rs2.7 crore in its second week to take its two week total to Rs31.65 crore.
1920 London has collected Rs40 lakh in its third week to take its three week tally to Rs14.6 crore.

*Traffic has collected 20 lakh in its third week to take its three week total to 3.7 crore.
Baaghi has added Rs45 lakh in fourth week to take its four week tally to Rs78.05 crore.

The Jungle Book continues its stronghold on the box office. The film has added Rs2.7 crore in its seventh week taking its seven week tally to Rs182.65 crore.
