Keeping in line with a box bureau decline, a latest 3 releases were nearby duds
None of a 3 films – ‘Dishkiyaoon’, ‘O Teri’ and ‘Youngistan’ – that expelled final week left an sense during a marquee. Simply put, large producers creation tiny films didn’t unequivocally work wonders. Of a three, ‘Youngistan’ took a series one position during a box bureau followed by ‘Dishkiyaoon’ and ‘O Teri’.
Of a 3 Friday releases, ‘Youngistan’ (above) took a series one position followed by ‘Dishkiyaoon’ and ‘O Teri’ respectively
According to exhibitor Rajesh Thadani, it was one of a misfortune weekends in 2014. He says, `’Youngistan’ raked in Rs 4 crore during a initial weekend while ‘Dishkiyaoon’ collected Rs 3.5 crore and ‘O Teri’ overwhelmed usually about Rs 2.25 crore. It was intensely bad for all three.`
Interestingly, directors of all a 3 films – Syed Ahmed Afzal, Sanamjit Talwar and Umesh Bisht – are debutants.
Vishal Anand of Fun Cinemas adds, `Although final weekend was a lowest week of March, altogether a month was good with films like ‘Queen’, ‘Ragini MMS 2’ and ‘300’.` Trade researcher Amod Mehra has rated all a 3 films in a dumb-dumber-dumbest category. He says, `I can't even speak about a numbers these films made. we can assure we that a numbers of all a 3 films put together will not cranky Rs 10 crore. It was really an advantage for ‘Queen’ and ‘Ragini MMS 2’ that continued to move in a numbers during a box office.`
The sum collection of a Kangna Ranaut-starrer is now pegged during Rs 55 crore while a Sunny Leone-starrer is going clever during Rs 43.5 crore. Not during all bad for woman-centric films.
First entertain collections
With a initial entertain entrance to a close, a attention is confounded with a opening of films during a box office. Of a 40 films that expelled from Jan to March, usually about half a dozen did good business. Thadani says things competence urge in a entrance months.
`The initial entertain has not been really enlivening exclusive films like ‘Yaariyaan’, ‘Queen’, ‘Ragini MMS 2’ and ‘Gunday’ that was average. This duration has not been good for a film industry. Jan to Mar has been a diseased period, though good calm always works and Queen’s operative has valid it.`
Anand compares this calendar year with 2013. `The initial entertain didn’t do that good due to bad calm in Feb distinct final year when we had 3 hits – ‘ABCD’, ‘Special 26’ and ‘Kai Po Che’.`
