Few filmmakers in Bollywood do not seem to have learnt lesson from the past as they have released more than seven movies this Friday. Much-hyped movies like Vishwaroop, David, Deewana Main Deewana, Mai, Midnight's Children, Listen Amaya and Unsound have hit the screens across the country. As usual, the result is that all of them have opened to a very poor response at the Box Office.
Kamal Hassan's controversial movie Vishwaroop, and Vikram and Neil Nithin Mukesh's David are much-hyped movies. The makers of these films have had huge amount of promotions for it. These flicks were expected to start with a bang at the Box Office. But they have received below average response at the ticket windows. They are likely to show improvements on Saturday and Sunday.
Whereas, other new releases like Deewana Main Deewana, Mai, Midnight's Children, Listen Amaya and Unsound have registered very low occupancy at both single screens and multiplexes. Their business is much lower than Vishwaroop and David. Trade experts feel that since they lack hype and promotions, they may not see big jump in their collection at the Box Office over the weekend.
However, the loss of the new releases is likely to be the gain of last week's release Race 2, which has continued to do well at the domestic Box Office in the second week. The Saif Ali Khan, John Abraham and Anil Kapoor starrer is expected to cross Rs 100 crore mark at the desi collection centres in the second weekend.
