If we talk about the new releases of the week, the box office is dull. A Flat, Ramaa - The Saviour and Dunno Y…Na Jaane Kyun all have fallen flat at the BO with bleak to poor collections.
Though A Flat had a slim chance because it came from the producers of A Wednesday, the poor reviews and dull response from the audience couldn’t help its business.
As for now, the box office has only one king and that’s Golmaal 3 which released on Diwali along with Akshay Kumar-Aishwarya Rai’s Action Replayy. The movie had an average opening but its second week business is huge with Rs 19 crore approx. The film’s total collection after ten days is Rs 81 crore approx and by the end of the week it should cross Rs 90 crore mark. Producers must be busy laughing their way to the bank, as it’s expected that the movie can even hit Rs 100 crore jackpot.
Action Replayy has had a poor run at the BO but in comparison to the new movies, its business is still better. As per reports, the film has lost more than 50% of its screen time in week two and that resulted in a huge drop in its collections; the lifetime business of the movie can cross Rs 30 crore mark. It collected just Rs 22.50 crore from its first week.
The coming Friday will see the release of Guzaarish.
