‘Tevar’ collects Rs 21.7 crore in opening weekend

MUMBAI: The solo release of the week, 'Tevar' suffered due to its outdated theme as the film is a remake of a 2003 Telugu original, 'Ukkadu'. The action, the film's mainstay, is oft repeated over the past few years. The film also lacks in romance as well as chemistry between the lead pair - Arjun Kapoor and Sonakshi Sinha.


'Tevar' opened to an average response and the collections dropped in the following shows as unfavourable reports emerged. The film has collected a mere Rs 21.7 crore in its opening weekend.


On the other hand, the Rajkumar Hirani directed 'PK' starring Aamir Khan continued its dream run at the box office. Making the most of Christmas holidays and poor oppositions for three weeks, the movie crossed the Rs 300 crore mark. The film has collected Rs 42.1 crore in its third week to take its three week total to Rs 311.7 crore.


'Take It Easy', a film aimed at children, performed poorly at the box office, having collected only Rs 35 lakh in its first week.


'Mumbai Can Dance Saala' had a disastrous first week with collection figures barely crossing Rs 10 lakh mark.


Anurag Kashyap's 'Ugly' has managed to put together Rs 2.3 crore for its second week taking its two week total to Rs 7.8 crore.


'Linga' (dubbed) starring superstar Rajinikanth and Sonakshi Sinha has fared below average. The original Tamil movie has also suffered at the box office and not much was expected from the Hindi dubbed version as the South legend has little following in the Hindi market.


Ajay Devgn's 'Action Jackson' has added another Rs 10 lakh in its fifth week to take its five week tally to Rs 58.9 crore.
