Past weekend, Box Office seemed to have trouble attracting movie-goers,
with 22nd March seeing the two major of it's four releases failing
miserably. Both Aatma (2013)
were promoted majorly and were much talked-about, yet, they opened to a weak response which saw no improvement.
stars Bipasha Basu
and Nawazuddin Siddiqui
in the lead roles and got
mixed reviews from the critics. The box office collection was Rs 1.52
crores on Friday. It marginally went up to Rs 1.73 crores on Saturday
and Rs 1.89 crores on Sunday, bringing the total collection of it's
first weekend to merely Rs 5.14 crores.
starring Jackky Bhagnani
was worse with a total collection of only Rs
3.75 crores in it's opening weekend. It barely managed Rs 1.03 crore on
Friday, Rs 1.17 crore on Saturday and Rs 1.55 crore on Sunday.
The other two releases for the week, Sona Spa
and Zindagi 50:50
also fared poorly.
With Sajid Khan's Himmatwala(2013)
and Tamannah releasing on 29th March, we hope that Bollywood
will manage some decent business on the last weekend before the next
financial month opens.Author: Neethi B.
