Bollywood witnessed the release of six movies like Aiyyaa, Bhoot Returns, Makkhi, Chittagong, Login and In The Name Of Tai, but all of them have opened to a poor response at the Box Office in India. Rani Mukherjee's Aiyyaa got good occupancy in theatres when compared to five other releases.
Aiyyaa, Bhoot Returns and Makkhi are much-hyped movies, and Aiyyaa is the front-runner in the race. The Rani Mukherjee and Prithviraj starrer has registered 25% occupancy, which is very disappointing for the makers. It is comeback film of Rani Mukherjee which is made with a big budget. It is expected to show a big jump in the evening shows.
Bhoot Returns is Ram Gopal Varma's latest horror movie and its promos have created a lot of curiosity among viewers. But the movie has an average of 10% occupancy across the country. Makkhi is the dubbed version of SS Rajamouli's Telugu movie Eega, which has received an earth-shattering response in Andhra Pradesh. It was expected to continue the same in the Hindi too. But this movie has also registered just 10% occupancy in both single screens and multiplexes.
Whereas, other new releases like Chittagong, Login and In The Name of Tai are medium budget movies and they have had a massive hype of promotions prior their release. Now, trade analyst feel that there is a chance for Aiyyaa, Bhoot Returns and Makkhi to pick up well in the collection centres, but the other three may washout completely.
