This week saw two new releases, Vikram Bhatt's Mahaakshay Chakraborty starrer horror flick, Haunted 3D and Y-Films (YRF)'s Luv Ka The End. It was evident before the release that Bhatt's horror flick will dominate Y-Films' love story, but this turned out to be a totally one sided story.
While the collections of Haunted 3D was average in the 2D versions occupying 20 to 45 percent of the seats, it was the 3D version that totally stole the show. The occupancy for Haunted 3D varies from 60-70 to even 100 percent at some screens. The actors of the film, Mahaakshay and Twinkle Bajpai, garnered a lot of appreciation from the movie buffs.
Y-Films' Luv Ka The End with a totally new cast and crew saw an ordinary collection (5-20 percent). The feedback from the commoners was even quite mild as compared to Haunted. However, what took away the icing of the cake was the Hollywood film Fast Five.
The Hollywood release overtook its Hindi competitors at the Box Office by embarking 70% opening on an average across India only on Friday. Fast Five did well at the multiplexes as well as at the single screens too.
