Last weekend there was only one release in Bollywood which was of “Ek Thi Daayan” starring Emraan Hashmi, Konkana Sen Sharma, Kalki Koechlin and Huma Qureshi. Ek Thi Daayan has generated good positive response from both critics and audience and collected 5.24 crores on the first day and then continued its good run by collecting 4.79 crores on Saturday followed by 6.09 crores on Sunday.
The main assets of the movie are its novel story-line and thrilling sound effects. Even the performances of Emraan Hashmi and Konkna Sen sharma were spectacular, music of the movie is topping the charts already especially “Yaaram”.
Collecting 16.12 crores in the first weekend is an exceptional outing with respect to movie’s budget and reach. The movie will have healthy run in multiplexes according to the trade pundits, but will not persist long in the single screens according to them. Movie is a sure shot winner at the box-office.
The movies that released the last week “Nautanki Saala” and “Commando” are still going good. Nautanki Saala collected 19.5 crores in its 1st week whereas “Commando” managed to grab 17.5 crores making both the movies successful.
This is a great start to quarter-2 for Bollywood after a poor show in the previous quarter, hope this continues for the remainder of the year.
