Chakravyuh was the next biggest directorial venture of
Jha after Aarakshan and it was expected to start with
a bang at the Box Office. But the film, which hit the screens on
Dussehra holiday, on October 24, could not register a big opening.
The movie has collected Rs 12.25 crores nett at the domestic
collection centres in the first weekend. Its breakup is Rs 3.25 cr
on Wed, Rs 2 cr on Thu, Rs 1.65 cr on Fri, Rs 2.50 cr on Sat and Rs
2.85 on Sun.
Romantic comedy Ajab Gazabb Love was promoted well and
it was expected to get the best opening of the three new releases.
Despite having a good word of mouth, the film has failed to make it
big at the collection centres. It has raked in approximately Rs
4.25 crores at the desi Box Office in the first weekend. Its
breakup is Rs 1.25 cr on Fri, Rs 1.40 cr on Sat and Rs 1.6 cr on
The worst of all the three movies is Rush, which stars
Emraan Hashmi and Neha Dhupiya in leads. Emraan has scored two hits
with Jannat 2 and Raaz 3, and this much-hyped
film was expected to be his third hit in 2012. But it has received
a worst opening and collected just Rs 2.10 crores at the desi Box
Office in the first weekend. Its breakup is Rs 60 lakhs on Fri, Rs
70 lakhs on Sat and Rs 80 lakhs on Sun.
However, Chakravyuh, Ajab Gazabb Love and
Rush have done very poor business at the domestic Box
Office in the first weekend. From this, it has once again become
clear that the bulk movie release would always result in poor show
for all the films at the collection centres.
