Seven new releases go down at box office
‘Aashayein’ doesn’t live up to hopes
There were altogether seven releases this Friday, out of which Aashayein was expected to do well. But the Nagesh Kukunoor film couldn’t seem to take off right from the beginning.Other releases like Antardwand with rave reviews, Gumshuda, Geng, Hello Darling, Madholal Keep Walking and Soch Lo, all failed to make a great opening at box office with just 0-10% occupancy.
Lafangey Parindey seems to have had lackluster performance at BO, but the movie faired well in its first week with the collection of Rs 17 crore approx. The absence of good films this Friday has benefitted this Yashraj film a lot. The film will also profit its producers with a good satellite rights price.
Aamir Khan’s production Peepli [Live] entered its second week but witnessed a drop in its collection. Now the movie’s two-week total is Rs 27.50 crore approx.
The next film for you is Karan Johar’s production We Are Family which is releasing on September 2.
