Box office: 'The Wolverine' steals a march on 'Issaq', 'Nasha' and 'Bajatey Raho'
Not for the first time, a Hollywood movie scored over new Bollywood releases at the Indian box office as the new Hindi releases Issaq, Nasha and Bajatey Raho opened to a dull response in comparison with the Hugh Jackman-starrer The Wolverine.

The Wolverine roared at the box office worldwide on its opening day, with $65 million from North America itself. In India, the film trumped the multiple small budget releases to register a good opening day collection of Rs. 3.15 crore net in its English and dubbed versions.

Of the Hindi releases, Bajatey Raho managed a somewhat face-saving collection with the opening day figure ranging between Rs. 1.20 crore to Rs. 1.35 crore net. The film has got mixed reviews and will need to show a substantial rise on Saturday and Sunday to make an impact.

Poonam Pandey’s much awaited debut Nasha opened to poor reviews and fared decently only at single screens. The film’s first day collection is likely to be in the ballpark of Rs. 90 lakh.

Similarly, Issaq, an adaptation of Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet starring Prateik Babbar and newcomer Amyra Dastur, saw a lukewarm response with a first day collection in the range of Rs. 1 crore. The film has mostly got poor reviews.

The other release, Luv U Soniyo, unanimously panned by the critics, opened dismally.

Meanwhile, the last week’s release D-Day rounded off its first week at Indian box office with Rs. 26 crore net. Ramaiya Vastavaiya was just marginally better with Rs. 26.80 crore in first week.

All eyes are now set on the big releases of August: Chennai Express, Once Upon Ay Time In Mumbai Dobaara!, Madras Cafe and Satyagraha.
