‘Tanu Weds Manu Returns’ on a barrier-breaking spree; collects Rs 69.85 crore

MUMBAI: Tanu Weds Manu Returns is on a barrier-breaking spree. Riding solely on Kangana Ranaut’s petite shoulders playing her double roles, the film is slated to set new benchmarks at the box office.

This is Ranaut’s hat trick after Tanu Weds Manu and Queen, all three being her personal triumphs and rewards of her outstanding talent. The film had a sort of tepid opening day but went on to consolidating over the weekend as well as taking a solid grip on the box office to end its first week with Rs 69.85 crore.

Welcome To Karachi, yet another attempt to launch Jackky Bhagnani in a home production, comes as a cropper. A poorly selected, mundane subject, unimaginative treatment and patchy making take their toll. Rather overconfidence of opening the film on Thursday evening for paid previews marred the film’s Friday prospects as the bad reports spread instantly. Resultantly, the film failed to attract viewers on Friday ending it with poor collections even as the following Saturday and Sunday could not lend any respectable figures to the opening weekend tally of Rs 5.55 crore.

P Se PM Tak, a script Kundan Shah had been working and reworking on for eons, released post undergoing a slaughter at the Censors and lack of promotion, fails miserably.

Ishqedarriyaan, a comeback vehicle for Mahakshay Chakraborty, son of Mithun Chakraborty, fails to find audience to avail of screenings. An also ran.

Bombay Velvet drops to about Rs 1 crore in its second week after a miserably devastating first week of Rs 21.65 crore. The film rates as the biggest disaster in last few decades and will lose almost all of its investment and some.

Piku managed to hold its own during its third week despite the Tanu Weds Manu Returns onslaught to put together a decent Rs 9.65 crore to take its three-week total to Rs 74.87 crore.

Gabbar Is Back collects Rs 1.45 crore in its fourth week taking its four-week total to Rs 79.25 crore and marginalizing its deficits.
