Box office: New releases flounder; 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag' enters 100 crore club
New Bollywood releases failed to keep pace with the unmitigated run of Bhaag Milkha Bhaag at the box office last weekend.

Three releases came out at the weekend, but none could set the box office afire, while director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's Bhaag Milkha Bhaag , which is in its fourth weekend, continued to be the audience's favourite.

Rabba Main Kya Karoon, "Chor Chor Super Chor" and B.A. Pass came out this Friday.

Director Amrit Sagar's "Rabba Main Kya Karoon" had Arshad Warsi as the star attraction, which talked about marriage and extra marital affairs. Even though Arshad had promised that the movie would be a treat to married men, it failed to impress either married or unmarried folks.

Next in the line was director Ajay Bahl's "B.A. Pass", which starred Shilpa Shukla of "Chak De! India" fame and Shadab Kamal. Made on a budget of about Rs. 3.5 crore, it was an erotic drama, but didn't have enough steam to race ahead and beat "Milkha...".
According to trade analyst Taran Adarsh's post on Twitter, among the new releases, "B.A. Pass" has fared better.

"The word of mouth has been strong, which translated into ample growth over the weekend. Opening weekend is approx Rs.4 crore," he tweeted.

Commenting upon the success of "Bhaag Milkha Bhaag", Adarsh tweeeted that it crossed the Rs.100 crore mark in its fourth weekend. "Emerged the second biggest grosser of 2013 thus far, after YJHD ('Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani')... Overall, super hit. Blockbuster in North circuit."

Puneet Sahay of Spice Cinemas told IANS: "There was 70 percent occupancy, but less takers for the movie on Monday. 'Rabba Main Kya Karu' had only 20 percent opening."

Another movie that received cold response from the viewers is director K. Rajesh's offering "Chor Chor Super Chor", actor Deepak Dobriyal's first film as lead actor.

"' Chor...' had least buyers. There were hardly 20 to 30 people who watched the film on the first day," said Sahay.

Rajesh Thadani of Multimedia Combines too gives thumbs up to "B.A. Pass".

"'B.A Pass' is the best among the three...but I doubt if any of them will be able to move to the next week," Thadani told IANS.

Meanwhile, "Bhaag Milkha Bhaag" has entered the Rs.100 crore club and Thadani added: "'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag' has been a landmark movie and I am sure it will hold the position even in the next week."
