Bollywood movie Rivaaz, which features Deepti Naval, Reema Lagoo and Vijay Raaz in the leads, has made a very poor opening at the Box Office. Director Ashok Nanda"s film is said to have failed to impress the movie buffs. Its bad beginning has benefited previous releases like Mere Brother Ki Dulhan and Bodyguard at the Box Office this weekend.
Mausam was postponed to next week and there was no other big release this weekend. So the film Rivaaz was expected to do well at the Box Office, but it took a very poor opening, which benefited the collections of MBKD and Bodyguard to gain momentum. They did well at the collection centres.
However, Rivaaz had a limited release and was not being screened in the states like Punjab, Orrisa and Assam. This was also one reason for its poor collection. Its rival MBKD went down by more than 50% in the second week, but it earned decent money over the weekend and gross collections amounted to around Rs 16 lakh.
