This week saw two new releases, Vikram Bhatt's Mahaakshay
Chakraborty starrer horror flick, Haunted 3D and Y-Films
(YRF)'s Luv Ka The End. It was evident before the release
that Bhatt's horror flick will dominate Y-Films' love story, but
this turned out to be a totally one sided story.
While the collections of Haunted 3D was average in the
2D versions occupying 20 to 45 percent of the seats, it was the 3D
version that totally stole the show. The occupancy for Haunted
3D varies from 60-70 to even 100 percent at some screens. The
actors of the film, Mahaakshay and Twinkle Bajpai, garnered a lot
of appreciation from the movie buffs.
Y-Films' Luv Ka The End with a totally new cast and
crew saw an ordinary collection (5-20 percent). The feedback from
the commoners was even quite mild as compared to Haunted.
However, what took away the icing of the cake was the Hollywood
film Fast Five.
The Hollywood release overtook its Hindi competitors at the Box
Office by embarking 70% opening on an average across India only on
Friday. Fast Five did well at the multiplexes as well as
at the single screens too.
