Beiimaan Love opened with very poor collection on its 1st day. The film has seen collections which could well compete with a mere 60 lakhs that One Night Stand had earned. That makes it a losing proposition on Day One itself. Moreover, the reviews too have been all around negative that further seals the film’s fate.
The only film which is seeing some kind of positive response is Saat Uchakkey. Though the Manoj Bajpayee starrer is a delayed release too, it has seen some kind of collections, albeit under the 1 crore mark. The reviews for Saat Uchakkey are fair and since the film aims primarily at the gentry, the family audiences are of course being marginalized. It has to be seen how the film unfolds over the rest of the weekend because if a turnaround has to happens, it needs to be really fast.
As for Fuddu and Anna, there wasn’t anything really going for the films. On the other hand the makers of Anna are now trying to gain Tax-Free status for their film. One wonders if that would actually make much of a difference to the overall collections since for now the film has been a non-starter due to very sparse release.
Mirzya has only crashed further in the second weekend and there are hardly any theaters playing the film. M.S. Dhoni – The Untold Story is the holdover release and still collecting the best of the lot. With 1.51 crore coming in, the film has now collected 122.99 crore at the Box Office.
*Estimates. Final numbers awaited
Note: All collections as per production and distribution sources
