Last Friday release, Ragini MMS 2, which has Sunny Leone in the lead role has had a superb start at the box-office counters and experts are also recommending audience not to miss ‘Lakshmi’ and ‘Ankhon Dekhi’ as well!
Critics and viewers have, however, given ‘Gang Of Ghosts’, which released Friday along with the other three, a cold shoulder. Directed by Bhushan Patel, ‘Ragini MMS 2′ has collected about Rs.16 crore in two days. It looks like the extensive marketing strategy paid off. Reportedly, Sunny also sold movie tickets to the awe-struck crowd at a theatre.
“‘Ragini MMS 2′ has a solid start at the ticket window. Despite India versus Pakistan cricket match making a dent in business, Friday total is impressive. ‘Ragini MMS 2′ (earned on Friday) Rs.8.43 crore, Saturday Rs.7.50 crore. India business only,” tweeted trade analyst Taran Adarsh.
Ragini MMS 2 hit the theaters on March 21, on this very day, almost the entire nation must have been glued to their TV sets to watch the India-Pakistan match in Bangladesh as part of ICC World Twenty20 tournament.
“‘Ragini MMS 2′ has sex, horror, comedy and hit music to ensure that it will prove a hit at the box-office,” trade analyst Komal Nahta tweeted.
‘Gang Of Ghosts’, also a horror film with comic elements, neither made the audiences roll with laughter on the floor nor gave them goose bumps.
“‘Gang Of Ghosts’ was meant to be a laugh-riot. But it hardly makes you laugh. Poor show,” Nahta posted on Twitter.
The movie which was made on a small budget of Rs 15-16 crores, collected about Rs 1 crores in it’s opening two days, said Rajesh Thadani of Multimedia Combines.
