Monday Bollywood Box office report – May 20

Box office saw one major release last week, action thriller, Aurangzeb. The movie featured Arjun Kapoor in a double-role which hasn’t been the theme of any movie since a while now. Active promotions, a big banner in YRF and a cast of Arjun Kapoor, Rishi Kapoor and newbie Sasha Agha were looking bright. With no other Bollywood movie releasing on the same date, there were hopes for an opening of around 40-50% earnings. But soon these hopes turned to ashes as the prediction failed as the movie opened with just 25%

Not that it’s a big surprise or a shock. The film was not bad but not outstanding either.

The film garnered a little over 12 crores in it’s opening weekend. The film shall be remembered for Rishi Kapoor dynamic personality and also for Arjun Kapoor’s breakthrough performance. The rest of the movie was a little baffling to the mind but nevertheless, 12 crores seems just!
