Indian box-office is going through that season which has been witnessing a dull business for the past few years. While the sun is burning hot, making people stay wherever they are, the ongoing cricket season is another damper at the box-office.
With ICC T20 World World Cup ending last week, IPL is all set to start next week. And suffering the crisis in between is Bollywood.
This week’s solo release, ‘Bhoothnath Returns’, which had everything going in its favor, from being a sequel to having fairly good promotion, saw a dismal response at the box-office. While the movie was widely praised by critics upon its release yesterday, the response at the ticket window hasn’t been much encouraging yet. The movie on its opening day ended collecting just 3.50 cr.
Another biggie, ‘Main Tera Hero’, which was released last week, however managed to survive. After registering a good business of 36 cr in the first week, the movie did a business of 1.75 on its 2nd Firday. The total collection of the movie now stands 37.75 cr.
However, seeing the word of mouth ranging from good to very good for both the movies, there is definitely a chance for both the movie to score higher numbers on the business front!
