Box Office Reports… Patiala House has a very dull start…

Akshay Kumar’s latest film Patiala House has opened to an unexpectedly poor response at the box office.

Luck seems to have run out on Akshay Kumar, for after the failure of his Tees Maar Khan, his new release Patiala House too wasn’t able to attract many footfalls in theaters on its opening day, Friday.

The film opened to 30 to 40 percent response in multiplexes, and a dismal 10 to 20 percent occupancy at single screen theaters. This is shockingly low for a superstar whose films used to open to packed houses just two years back. The reviews by critics are mixed and so is the audience reaction to the Nikhil Advani-directed film.

Meanwhile, last week’s release Yeh Saali Zindagi rounded off its first week with a collection of Rs. 7.5 crore net. On the other hand, Madhur Bhandarkar’s Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji continued to slide down and did a business of Rs. 6 crore during its second week. The film’s collection so far is in the proximity of Rs. 27 crore.

The coming Friday would see the release of Vishal Bhardwaj’s much awaited film 7 Khoon Maaf.

  1. @Jaynil Tees Maar Khan wasn’t flop, but it was a faileur like its written above…. because of the much hyped film it only was an averege fare, and with the “hit” jodi Katrina- Akshey it was a faileur at the box office because it couldn’t live up to the expectation!!

      1. No! As written it was an avrege movie… the theatrical revenue of the movie was above averege, but it was a faileur because it didn’t live up the the “juntas” expectation!
