New Bollywood release Inkaar starring Arjun Rampal and Chitrangada Singh in leads, has topped the collection chart at the Indian Box Office in the first weekend, pushing down last week's release Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola (MKBKM) to the second place. But other two new releases Mumbai Mirror and Bandook have done very poor collection at the domestic collection centres in their opening weekend.
The much-hyped movie Inkaar, which had huge amount of promotions, opened to a dull response on the first day of its release with its occupancy ranging between 20-30%. The movie was expected to show a big jump over the weekend. It did improve its collection, but it was not upto the mark. It has collected Rs 6.35 crores nett at the domestic Box Office in its opening weekend. Its breakup is Rs 1.75 cr on Fri, Rs 2.10 cr on Sat and Rs 2.50 cr on Sun.
Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola, which was released on last Friday, was once again seen keeping the bells ringing at the cash counters. In the second weekend, the Imran Khan and Anushka Sharma starrer witnessed 75%+ drop in its business. The movie has collected Rs 4.95 crores nett at the desi Box Office in the second weekend, taking its 10-day total Rs 38.10 crores nett.
Whereas other new releases Mumbai Mirror and Bandook have been announced as disasters at the domestic Box Office. Both the movies opened to a very dull response with their occupancy ranging between 5-10%. And they did not show any big improvement in their collection over the weekend. Hence, they have fetched negligible numbers at the collection centres.
