Director Shirish Kunder's latest movie
which is one of most-awaited movies of 2012, has tanked at the Box
Office in India. Its first weekend collection is not even equal to
its expected first day collection. The fantasy adventure has joined
the league of biggies like Abhishek Bachchan's Players and
Ajay Devgn's Tezz, which have utterly failed at the Box
Office early this year.
Joker was expected to open to an earth-shattering
response at the Box Office on Friday. But Akshay Kumar
and Sonakshi Sinha starrer film failed at
the collection centres on the very first day. The movie collected
approximately Rs 5 crore at the Indian Box Office, which is lower
than the collection of medium budget movies like Jism 2,
Jannat 2 and Teri Meri Kahaani.
The makers of Joker are hoping that its business will
improve on Saturday. But negative reviews and bad word of mouth
sent down its collection on the second day to Rs 4.75 crore. The
movie witnessed a jump in its business on Sunday, but it was not up
to the mark. The film added Rs 5.45 crores nett on the day to its
first weekend collection 16.20 crore nett.
However, Joker is a very big budget movie, which has
been made with Rs 45 crore. The theatrical rights have fetched a
whopping price for its makers. But it is the fate of distributors,
who are facing tough time. It should be seen whether the film will
get back their investment in future. Stay locked to this space to
