Prakash Jha's much-hyped movie Chakravyuh, which hit the screens on Wednesday, embarked on a slow start at the domestic Box Office and collected approximately Rs 3.25 crores on the first day of its release (Dussehra). Although it has a positive word of mouth, the movie had a dull response on Thursday and Friday.
Ajab Gazabb Love, which released in theatres today (October 26), has received extremely mixed response in both multiplexes and single screens in morning and matinee shows on its opening day. This movie has better occupancy when compared to the other two films like Chakravyuh and Rush.
Whereas, another new release Rush, which hit the screens today, has a lukewarm start at the desi Box Office. The movie starring Emraan Hashmi and Neha Dhupia in leads, has also got mixed response in both multiplexes and single screens in morning and matinee shows on its opening day. It is expected to pick up in the following days.
However, two weeks ago, Bollywood suffered severe set back when six Hindi movies hit screens on the same day. This bulk release resulted in the viewers rejecting the new release outright and giving another chance to old releases to rock again. The same situation is expected to repeat this weekend too as last week release Student of the Year is leading the race at the Box Office.
