Director Kunal Kohli's latest movie Teri Meri Kahaani (TMK) has topped the collection chart at the Box Office by pushing down Anurag Kashyap's film Gangs Of Wasseypur (GOW). Shahid Priyanka starrer has raked in Rs 16.75 crores nett, while Manoj Bajpayee starrer collected Rs 10.63 crores nett in the first weekend. But it has failed to break the record of Shahid's last film Mausam, which had grossed Rs 23 crores nett in the opening weekend.
Teri Meri Kahaani is one of the most expected romantic thrillers of 2012 and it was expected to get a tremendous opening at the Box Office. But the movie received an average response at the collection centres and concluded the Friday with a collection of Rs 5.25 crores nett at the Box Office in India.
Trade analyst opined that the business of Teri Meri Kahaani would improve on the following days. Yes! There was certain amount of growth in its collection, but it was not upto the mark. The breakup of its first weekend collections Rs 5.25 cr on Fri, Rs 5.50 cr on Sat and Rs 6 cr + on Sun.
On the other hand, Gangs Of Wasseypur, which is also one of the most-awaited movies, opened to a very low response, but there was a big growth in its business in the evening and night shows on Friday. It has received good response at multiplexes in metros, while its business at single screens was weak. The breakup of its opening weekend collections is Rs 3.03 cr on Fri, Rs 3.60 cr on Sat and Rs 4 cr on Sun.
However, the loss of Teri Meri Kahaani and Gangs Of Wasseypur was the gain of old releases like Ferrari Ki Sawaari (FKS) and Rowdy Rathore, which still had a good time at the Box Office. Rowdy Rathore added Rs 3.25 crores to its total collection Rs 133.25 crores nett in the fourth weekend, while FKS collected Rs 5.04 crores nett in the second weekend taking its 10-day total to Rs 26 crores nett.
