Despite getting rave reviews from the film critics, film I Am Kalam saw poor collection at the Box Office. A prominent star missing is definitely a draw back as there is no strong crowd puller in the film. As compared to I Am Kalam Chala Mussaddi - Office Office, a movie adaptation of the television sitcom of the same name, fared quiet better. Meanwhile, other releases like Chhutanki and Warning were total washed-out.
However, Singham, the only big release since last two weeks has continued to attract footfalls to theatres. On Friday, the film completed its two-week successful run at the theatres with a nett collection of Rs. 73 crores. It is expected that the film will enjoy a good run till the coming Friday and is expected to touch Rs. 90 crore mark by the end of its third week. That calls for a 'Superhit' tag for Singham.
After two weeks of no interesting releases, audiences are eagerly waiting for August 12, when Prakash Jha"s film Aarakshan starring Amitabh Bachchan, Saif Ali Khan, Deepika Padukone, Manoj Bajpayee and Prateik Babbar will release. Since August 13 and 15 are holidays for Raksha Bandha and Independence Day, Aarakshan will enjoy a long weekend and is expected to register a good opening at theatres.
