'Dishoom' collects Rs 11 crore on first day ; 'Sultan' inches to Rs 300 crore

MUMBAI: Dishoom, despite mixed reactions, opens to decent houses to show a healthy first day collections of about Rs. 11 crore. The film sustains almost to the first day performance showing little growth on Saturday but peaks on Sunday crossing Rs. 14 crore.

The film caters more to youth with its fun and action based theme. Varun Dhawan plays to the gallery to earn the film the category a general entertainer. The film ends its opening weekend with Rs. 37.4 crore.

The other two releases, Murder Madhuri and Love Ke Funday prove to be damp squibs.

Madari, promising much as it did with Irrfan Khan and Jimmy Shergill, had a fair amount of critical appreciation and audience applause but not enough to spell a healthy box office returns. After its opening weekend of Rs.8.4 crore, the film could add just about 50 per cent more during rest of the four days of the week to take its first week total to Rs 12.7 crore.

M Cream, a misconceived theme of a contemporary young bunch of boys and girls pretending to live in 1960s is very poor failing to collect just about five lakh in its first week.

Indrakumar’s third instalment of his Masti series adult comedy fails to cash it on its brand equity and does badly. The film, after a weak first week of Rs. 12.5crore, adds just Rs. 45 lakh in its second week taking its two week tally to Rs. 12.95 crore.

Sultan rides on strong Salman Khan shoulders to hold its own in its third week to add Rs. 15.75 crore thus taking its three week total to Rs. 293.71 crore (total 23 days) as it now trudges through to make to the Rs. 300 crore mark which should be attainable by the end of this week or early next weekend.

Kabali (Hindi dubbed from Tamil) has not matched the media hype it created when it comes to its box office performance with its Hindi dubbed version. Despite an extensive exposure at over 1000 screens, the film has managed to collect Rs.20.8 crore in its first week.
