Mumbai: March, which is considered as the month of exams for
schools and colleges, seems to be unlucky month for Bollywood.
Except Jolly LLB, most of the big-ticket films released in
this month have bombed at the Indian Box Office. Aatma and Rangrezz, which
hit the screens this weekend, are the latest entrants in this list.
Both new releases have stooped before last week's release Jolly
Aatma and Rangrezz are highly-talked about
Bollywood movies and the makers of the films had massive promotion
prior their release. They were expected to start with a bang at the
Box Office. But they opened to weak response and did not witness
major growth all through the weekend. They have become disasters at
the domestic Box Office.
Aatma starring Bipasha Basu and Nawazuddin Siddiqui in
leads, has collected Rs 5 crores nett at the domestic Box Office in
first weekend. Whereas Rangrezz featuring Jackky
Bhagnani and Priya Anand in leads has raked in Rs 4 crores nett
at the desi collection centres. Trade experts feel that they may
struggle to recover their production cost.
