Box office: 'Chashme Baddoor' clicks, 'Himmatwala' flops

David Dhawan comedy 'Chashme Baddoor' has a good first weekend

Dejected by the overhyped Himmatwala, the movie goers seemed to find some relief in the last Friday’s comedy Chashme Badooor. The film had a great first weekend at the box office.

Starring Ali Zafar, Siddharth, Divyendu Sharma and Taapsee Pannu, Chashme Baddoor marks the return of David Dhawan to his comedic form of yore after a few aberrations like Rascals (in 2011) and Do Knot Disturb (in 2009).

Having got good reviews from the critics, Chashme Baddoor on Friday opened with a collection of Rs. 5.18 crore nett, which was good but not great. Saturday brought more cheer to the makers with the collection rising to Rs. 6.27 crore. The biggest day in terms of business was Sunday. The collection peaked to Rs. 8.09 crore.

The first weekend collection of Chashme Baddoor stands at Rs. 19.6 crores nett which is superb for a film of its budget and genre.

On the other hand, Himmatwala, starring Ajay Devgn and Tamannaah and directed by the cocksure Sajid Khan, has bitten the box office dust. The film’s business showed a downward trend throughout the week and the second weekend took all the wind out of its sail. FLOP.

The coming Friday would see the release of Nautanki Saala! starring Ayushmann Khurrana and Kunaal Roy Kapur, and Commando starring Vidyut Jamwal.
