In a country hooked to masala entertainers, a Farah Khan film is indeed a cinematic event, and humungous expectations were attached to her film Tees Maar Khan.
The film witnessed a good opening at box office, raking in third largest first weekend collection for any Hindi movie with the business of a little over 38 crore nett. Only two films, Dabangg and 3 Idiots boast of better first weekend collection.
Starring Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif, TMK opened to the first day business of Rs 13 crore on Friday. It picked up marginally on Saturday, with a collection of near about Rs. 13.25 crore. The business fell on Sunday - when it should have gone up - with the film making about Rs 12 crore.
Negative reviews and word of mouth dented the movie’s collection further on Monday.
Normally, Christmas weekend is big for Bollywood. Since last three years, Aamir Khan has been giving hits like Taare Zameen Par, Ghajini and 3 Idiots during Xmas weekend. TMK has fallen below expectations when compared to the mammoth business that Aamir’s films did.
