Opening weekend box office: ‘The Lunchbox’ picks up, ‘Phata Poster’ fares average
Shahid Kapoor’s Phata Poster Nikhla Hero failed to make a mark at the box office in the opening weekend, while the Irrfan Khan-Nimrat Kaur starrer The Lunchbox saw a tremendous growth.

The Lunchbox, for one, had a limited release but a unanimous praise by the critics and the strong positive word of mouth had the cine buffs thronging the theatres on Sunday and Saturday. Therefore, after a somewhat slow start on Friday with just Rs. 1.25 crore net, the movie showed a growth of 120 percent on Saturday and the collections rose to Rs. 2.60 crore net. Sunday was still better with Rs. 3.25 crore. The opening weekend figures tot up to Rs. 7.10 crore approx.

Movie Review: The Lunchbox

On the other hand, Phata Poster Nikhla Hero, starring Shahid Kapoor and Ileana D'Cruz did not live up to the expectations. After a dull Friday of Rs. 6 crore net, the film showed minimal growth on Saturday with Rs. 7 crore as the day’s collection. Sunday’s collection of Rs. 8.25 crore net took the film’s first weekend collection to Rs. 21.25 crore net, which is below the mark for any big budget Bollywood movie featuring a popular star.

Meanwhile, Grand Masti has continued its triumphant march at the box office. The film has crossed the Rs. 80 crore mark. It remains to be seen if it will hit a century of crores.

The coming Friday will have multiple releases, but the most notable among them are Super Model and Warning.
