This week has seen the release of four much-hyped Bollywood movies like Bajatey Raho (BR), Nasha, Issaq and Luv U Soniyo, but all of them have failed to fare well at the Indian Box Office in the first week. Instead, they have paved way for Farhan Akhtar's two-week old release Bhaag Milkha Bhaag rock again at the ticket counters. With 10 new films that hit the screens this Friday, they may not be able to recover their production costs.
Bajatey Raho, which has been made with a minimal budget, debuted with an average response, but when compared to others, it had a slightly better response at the Box Office. The movie failed to be stable on weekdays. It has collected approximately Rs 7 crores nett at the Indian Box Office in the first week. The Shashant Shah-directed film has to do well in the second week, if it has to recover its production cost.
Among the four movie, Nasha was the most-hyped and highly-talked about film. Surprisingly, this movie debuted with a poor response and failed to pick up over the weekend and on weekdays. The Poonam Pandey starrer has collected approximately Rs 5 crores at the Indian Box Office in its opening week.
Like Nasha, Prateik Babbar starrer Issaq met the same fate at the Indian Box Office with its collection reaching approximately Rs 5 crores in the first week. Among the four, the poorest opener is Luv U Soniyo. Starring newcomers, the movie could not do well either in the weekend or on the weekdays. It has turned out to be a disaster at the Box Office.
