Averages dominates box-office, Bombardments of small movies this week, sweeps under 3 Crore weekend
As good as seven new bollywood releases (AASHAYEIN, HELLO DARLING, ANTARDWAND, MADHOLAL-KEEP WALKING, GUMSHUDA, SOCH LO, GENG) met with hurricane like response never seen before, hold your breath, combined weekend business of seven movies is less than 3 Crore, Major contribution came from Hello Darling.
Lafangey Parindey joins the league of averages like Atithi and Badmash Company. Movie did OK business in first week (17 Crore). Collections dropped by 65% on second weekend, Ten days estimate is around 20.5 Crore. Movie did better business than new releases in second weekend, should get benefit from lack of prominent releases for next two weeks.
Peepli [Live] after bumper first week [21.5 Crore] , dropped heavily on second week[6.5 Crore] and third weekend registered stable collections under 2 Crore. Overall movie of this caliber, had released without brand Aamir, would have been collapsed under 5 Crore, Now enjoying 30 Crore status. Drill down the chain of investors and everyone made handsome money. Overall HIT.
OUATIM crossed 56 Crore mark. Movie just missed the Super Hit Status. But none the less is Hit+.
