With older releasing like Bhaag Milkha Bhaag still continuing to rule the roost, Tusshar Kapoor’s Bajatey Raho was by far the best received film this week. The film has collected around 1.25 crore net on its opening day.
The other releases this week were non-starters, with several shows at multiplexes cancelled during to zero turn-out. Poonam Pandey’s Nasha did well in a couple of territories due to its ‘sex content’, although the business was below the 1 crore mark.
Of all the 4 or 5 releases this week (excluding Hollywood release Wolverine, which did reasonably well, even though the business was lower than most Hollywood blockbusters), Isaaq was the worst-hit with plenty of shows cancelled. Again, all-India collections were below 1 crore.
Bhaag Milkha Bhaag is almost certain to cross the 100 crore mark, as the film was rock-steady in Week 3. The film’s 15th day business is around 2 crores, taking its total to around 81 crores.
Last week’s two releases – Ramaiya Vastaiya remained steady in a few centres, but dropped elsewhere. D-Day looked promising initially, but should finish well below the 30 crore mark.
