Last Friday, Bollywood saw only one major movie, Chashme Baddoor which released in theaters. Being a comedy film, directed by a comedy veteran director, David Dhawan did not disappoint the audience who came in huge number.
The movie collected 18 Cr in the first weekend collections. It had one of the highest opening weekend collections in this year. Though the occupancy rate in theaters was around 50% since it had a wide release, the numbers came in. The actors performances, songs and quirky dialogues are the highlights of this movie. Director David Dhawan is a happy man. Having faced ire of the public for his last two releases Do Knot Disturb and Rascals, made neccesary changes to the story of classic comedy film Chashme Buddoor.
Even though the critics response to this movie was bad, good word of mouth among the public ensured that this Ali Zafar,Divyendu Sharma,Sidharth and Taapsee Pannu starrer stay afloat. And also it had a single movie release.
Other small movie which was released last friday was Luke Kenny’s Rise of the Zombies. But due to a limited release and no word from the critics, this movie flopped badly.
On other news, Jolly LLB’s box office collections have surpassed 50Cr mark. Movie was made on a small budget of 14 Cr and it has collected 46 Cr from domestic market and 4 Cr from overseas. The movie make even more profits as the makers have been approached by several producers from south for a remake.
