Happy Ending has just completed a disastrous weekend at the box office. The weekend business is much lower than Saif Ali Khan’s last release Humshakals (37 cr) and worse than Bullett Raja which collected Rs 23 crore in its first weekend.
The opening has come as a shocker for the trade, who had their hopes pinned on Saif returning to a genre that he usually excels in. The reports for the film aren’t bad, but the audience has decided to skip ‘Happy Ending’ – the reason for which could be the unexciting promos and flop music.
Like we mentioned in an article yesterday, the third week of November has been disastrous for film releases. In fact, a month that looked promising with releases like ‘The Shaukeens’, ‘Kill Dil’, ‘Happy Ending’ and ‘Ungli’ has been disastrous for the industry, what with 3 films failing to recover costs (two of them falling well short).
The buzz for this week’s release ‘Ungli’ is also pretty low and that film too will rely on word-of-mouth publicity. But, like Happy Ending, if the opening is so low, it becomes an uphill task even with decent growth over the weekend.
Happy Ending Weekend Collections
- Friday – 3.92 cr
- Saturday – 4.48 cr
- Sunday – 5.19 cr
- Total – 13.59 cr
Yo @Ultron just pipe down and wait for avengers
Saif need to learn a lesson from Hrithik Roshan and start fudging collection and be happy in its own la la land
@Sameer: during Love aaj kal, deepika isnít top actress, inface love aaj kal was deepika 2nd clean hit after oso n deepika comes tops after cocktail befor she gave disaster desi boyz. And for Srk, if his film didnít work(jthj,ra1) credit goes to him, if his film works(ce,don2) credit goes to actrees n director. SRK is the only actor who gave blockbuster CDI without any actrees, n he repeat it with Fan.
SAIF ALI KHAN’s Latest quote
……….ďI aiming for commercial success but with a nice movie. I will do good movies. The films that I have picked up now are all going to be good films even if they are not Rs. 100 crore films,Ē he added………..
This what I respect about him. When he started in early 1990s, he could barely act.
His choice of roles from PARINEETA to OMKARA to PHANTOM are extremely satisfying. Class directors like Tigmanshu, Sriram, Rensil, Kabir, Vishal B, Abbas-Mustan, Prakash Jha, Farhan etc have worked with him.
Thats one hell of a resume and easily beats Akshay, Ajay, Sallu resumes.
Next up for Saif might be Anurag.
ACTION JACKSON is waiting to be ultra flop!
Did anyone see the trailer of AJ. It was the worse thing I have seen this year.
I cannot believe people will wait for this Junk. I think audience will save money for P.K.
