Box office: 'Aiyyaa', 'Bhoot Returns' have a dull start

Rani Mukerji’s comeback film has a poor start at box office

A film-studded weekend but few footfalls at box office. The new releases Aiyyaa, Bhoot Returns, Makkhi and Chittagong have been greeted with a lull at ticket windows.

Many were agog to know how Rani Mukerji’s comeback film Aiyyaa that has her playing a day-dreaming Marathi girl would fare at box office. The first signs are anything but heartening. The film, directed by Sachin Kundalkar and introducing south star Prithviraj Sukumaran to Bollywood, opened to a dull response ranging between 20 to 25 percent. As is the norm, the collections would pick up on Saturday and Sunday, but it would take nothing short of a huge turnaround in the collections for the film to make a mark at box office. Moreover, the reviews have been mixed. Some critics have found the film watchable, while the others have slammed it outright.

Ram Gopal Varma, who recently make snide remarks at Karan Johar, may have to eat a humble pie as his 3D horror film Bhoot Returns had a poor start with a response ranging between 10 to 20 percent. Makkhi, the Hindi version of the Telugu hit Eega, fared still poorer and the worst of all was Chittagong, despite getting rave reviews from critics.

Meanwhile, Sridevi’s English Vinglish rounded off its first week at box office with a collection of Rs. 21 crore. But the happiest of all would be Akshay Kumar and Paresh Rawal, whose Omg Oh My God! showed a miraculous turnaround after a bleak start to reach the Rs. 60 crore mark at the end of second week.

The next week would see the release of Karan Johar’s film Student Of The Year, introducing Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt and Siddharth Malhotra. The first reactions to the film from those in Bollywood who have watched it are positive.
