MUMBAI: Mr X paid for its poor content and the resultant negative word of mouth. Having opened to below par collections on day one, it failed to better its opening day collections on Saturday and Sunday and ended its opening weekend with Rs 12.45 crore.

Margarita With A Straw, despite limited screens release, put up a poor performance at the box office. Except Kalki Koechlin, who earned some plaudits for her performance, nobody looks likely to benefit from this enterprise. The film collected Rs 1.9 crore. NH 8 Road To Nidhivan is starved of audience and has no hope at the box office.

Nanak Shah Fakir carried lots of hope coming as it does after a very successful Char Sahebzaade, another film on the Sikh saga, but fails to even get a decent opening.

Ek Paheli Leela, with Sunny Leone’s skin show being the draw, had a limited appeal, which wears out after its opening weekend. The film added little over Rs 7 crore for the rest of the four days to end its first week with Rs 18.7 crore.

Dharam Sankat Mein proves that best of performers can’t carry a film if the content is poor. The trio of Paresh Rawal, Naseeruddin Shah and Annu Kapoor could do little to salvage this poorly crafted film, which opened to weak response and remained that way through its first week. The film could manage just about Rs 7.6 crore for its first week.

Detective ByomkeshBakshy, despite its deficiencies, managed a reasonable second week thanks to poor oppositions. The film collected Rs 5.2 crore to take its two week tally Rs 25.17 crore.

Dum Laga Ke Haisha, the best performer at the box office so far this year, added a symbolic Rs 5 lakh in its seventh week to come to the end of its run at the box office with total of Rs 30.37 crore.
