Looks like the good times have started for Bollywood. After the
great business done by films like Murder 2 and Delhi
Belly at the Box Office, the latest releases Zindagi Na
Milegi Dobara and Harry Potter The Deathly Hallows Part
2 also opened with a big bang.
Zoya Akhtar's direction Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, which
created a lot of hype before the release opened with a flying start
at almost all multiplexes across the country. Though Zindagi Na
Milegi Dobara got mixed reviews from the film critics, it did
not affect the occupancy at the plexes. Infact, the occupancy at
plexes ranged from 70%, 80%, even 100% at several properties.
However, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara is expected to
accumulate a hefty amount at the end of the weekend thanks to the
gigantic contribution from plexes.
Harry Potter The Deathly Hallows Part 2 also had an
electrifying start in its 3D version. The non-3D version, however
reported lesser occupancy. The successful franchise is expected to
garner healthy figures in its opening weekend.
The best part was that both the films Zindagi Na Milegi
Dobara and Harry Potter The Deathly Hallows Part 2
did not eat into each others business. The Mumbai Blast has also
quiet not affected lats Fridays releases.
