Bollywood’s performance in the first quarter of 2013 is not up to the mark according to the trade pundits. Out of 40 films that were released so far only 4 movies could generate magic numbers and overall revenue generated is 450 crore which is very less compared to 2012.
The only movie that could manage to join the 100 crore club is Race -2 but in terms of profits generated Race-2 did not do much justice to the distributors. Other movies that made some good money are Akshay Kumar’s “Special 26” which managed to collect around 70 crores but not much profits, Remo De Souza’s dance flick “ABCD” grossed 40 crores which is a great achievement, “Kai po Che” which had new comers all over it did a business of 50 crore.
On the flipside, movies like “Murder-3”, “Jolly LLB”, “Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns” could generate positives response from the audiences and critics but did average business without even crossing 20 crore mark. Movies like “Zila Ghaziabad”, “Vishwaroop” have bombed at the box-office and gave tears to the distributors.
However, quarter 2 looks pretty good for the Bollywood considering the high profile movies that are releasing with “Himmatwala” being the 1st movie which is all set to release on 29th of march and movies like “Ek Thi Daayan”, “Shootout at Wadala”, “Ganchakkar”, “Zanjeer”, “Jeh jawani Hai Deewani”, “Yamla Pagla Deewana -2” are lined up for the release.
