New releases Aiyyaa, Bhoot Returns, Makkhi, Chittagong, Login and In The Name Of Tai have failed to make it big at the Box Office in India. Old releases like OMG Oh My God and English Vinglish have overtaken them at the collection centres across the country and landed in first and second spot respectively at the business chart in the country.
Six new releases were expected to push down the collection of OMG Oh My God and English Vinglish at the domestic Box Office. But they have failed to do so. Instead they have been pushed down by them in the business centres. OMG Oh My God has collected Rs 8.5 crores in the third weekend taking its 17 day total to Rs 68.5 crores, while English Vinglish added Rs 8 crores to its 10-day total Rs 29 crores.
Rani Mukherjee and Prithviraj starrer Aiyyaa is one of the most-hyped movies of 2012. But this big budget movie embarked on a poor start at the Box Office. The movie has collected approximately Rs 5 crores nett at the domestic Box Office in the first weekend. It has landed in the third spot in the collection chart.
Filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma's Bhoot Returns starring JD Chakravarthy and Manisha Koirala in leads, has landed in fourth position with its first weekend collection crossing Rs 3.75 crores nett. It has become another flop movie from RGV after Department. Whereas another much-awaited movie Makkhi, the dubbed version of SS Rajamouli's Telugu movie Eega, has collected Rs 2.06 crores nett in three days.
However, other new releases Chittagong, Login and In The Name of Tai have announced as big flops. They have to struggle to recover their production cost in coming days. All six new films have failed to fetch even Rs 15 crores together at the Box Office in the first weekend. And trade analysts call it an effect of bulk releases.
