Good Weekend for MNIK , But dropped
Most awaited and hyped movie of 2010, My name is khan opened to mild to very good response at boxoffice on Friday. There was trouble in release on Friday at Mumbai and some parts of Maharashtra, Friday was partially opened at some places, but from Saturday onwards there was no hurdle any more. Weekend collections were excellent for Delhi/UP and south. Mumbai despite highly controversial area for movie, show improvement in collections(in terms of occupancy) on Sunday only. On average weekend was in range of 50- 60%. It collects 27.75 Crore over first weekend. Friday (7.5 Crore) , Saturday (9 Crore), Sunday(11.25 Crore). MNIK enjoyed good weekend, but Monday was most crucial for movie to prove whether it being liked or not. Unfortunately MNIK dropped for around 65% on Monday (compared to Sunday). Monday saw approx. 4.5 Crore. Today it crashed further 20-30% at many centers, Delhi and UP is doing best business followed by Bangalore, Hyderabad, Bombay (though dropped heavily now).But Still MNIK can become HIT based on excellent overseas business (2.3M $, if continues to do with same pace)
From past releases, Ishqiya has done average business of 19 Crore in two weeks and Rann is flopped by just 8.5 Crore in two weeks. Both movies are wash out in third weekend. Rann is out on DVD now.
