This week, the Box Office saw the release of two different genres, producer Vishesh Bhatt's directorial thriller Murder 3 and the romantic Jayanta Bhai Ki Luv Story featuring Vivek Oberoi. With the continued success of Race 2, Special 26 and ABCD, these films had tough competition against them this past weekend. 

The murder mystery, Murder 3 saw a decent amount of footfalls these past few days with an average collection of Rs. 4 Crores on its opening day.  Unfortunately it wasn't good news for the Bhatt camp as this was the lowest opening seen from their popular 'Murder' franchise. It was quite disappointing as both Murder 1 and Murder 2 managed to rake in about 7 Crores on their first day. This mixed review remake of the Spanish thriller 'La cara Oculta' (The Hidden Face) managed to bring in about Rs. 13 crores over the entire weekend. This film is likely to fade into oblivion leaving its music on the lips of many for the days to come. We wonder whether the numbers reflect the fact that the Bhatt's lucky charm Emraan Hashmi was not a part of this project.

The other release of the day was one that hold the power to either make or break the career of a struggling actor. This Vivek Oberoi starrer Jayanta Bhai Ki Luv Story proved to be a disappointment with a meager Rs 2-2.5 crores collection over its first weekend. The film revolves around Jayanta, a Mumbai thug who ends up falling for a highly educated girl named Simran, played by Neha Sharma. With the lack of screen space, tough competition, lack of promotion and mixed reviews we won't be surprised if the film bids adieu fairly quickly in the coming days. 

Though both the films did poorly considering the successful opening so far this year, Murder 3 atleast managed to recover its budget and make better business than its competitor Jayanta Bhai Ki Luv Story. With the promising Kai Po Che starring television known face Sushant Singh Rajput releasing this week we hope to see the cash registers chiming once again!

    Looking forward to Kai Po Che and Sushant Singh Rajput's debut in it. I'm sure both the film and Sushant will rock.
