Last week’s releases, Fox Star Studio’s ‘Jolly LLB’, Eros International’s ‘3 G’ and Yash Raj Film’s ‘Mere Dad Ki Maruti’ saw a poor opening at the Box office. Despite being big banner films, all the three releases failed to lure the cine-goers.
Compared to the other two, Subhash Kapoor’s Arshad Warsi-Boman Irani starrer proved to be the only film which had a decent earning on the opening day – Rs 3.12 crores. The film had a superb Sunday, collecting a sum of Rs. 5.16 crores. Weekend total of jolly LLB was Rs 12.51 crores.
Neil Nitin Mukesh satrrer ‘3G’ seems to have done better in smaller centres and collected Rs 3.53 cr nett in its opening weekend, with Friday collecting a sum of Rs. 1.08 cr, Saturday – 1.10 cr and Sunday – 1.35 cr. The film’s overall weekend performance remained very poor.
Mere Dad Ki Maruti opening collections were a little over 4 crores. The Northern territories have performed the best, but the business in some circuits was below average. Despite being a low-budget flick, Mere dad Ki Maruti fared better than 3G, all thanks to the film’s branding and advertising.
Another reason why all the three films fared below expectations is because of the on-going exams.
This Friday sees Bipasha Basu starrer Aatma and Jackky Bhagnani starrer Rangrezz.
