view HARI PUTTAR – A COMEDY OF TERRORS movie stills

The coming Friday will witness two releases, Mirchi Movies Limited's HARI PUTTAR – A COMEDY OF TERRORS and the Shemaroo Entertainment venture, RAFOO CHAKKAR – FUN ON THE RUN. None of the two releases are expected to achieve anything at the ticket window.

Like it has been the tradition over the last few weeks, last Friday threw another surprising success. We are obviously talking about Shyam Benegal's Shreyas Talpade and Amrita Rao starrer, WELCOME TO SAJJANPUR. Released at around 80 cinemas of Bombay city and suburbs by UTV Motion Pictures, the film was off to an ordinary start. In other circuits, the opening ranged from dull to ordinary. Surprisingly the film picked up substantially based on good word of mouth and WELCOME TO SAJJANPUR ended the weekend having netted an impressive 5.35 crores! The film is expected to be a profitable venture for all concerned, especially in view of the low associated costs. The other two releases, Shona Urvashi's SAAS BAHU AUR SENSEX and Jaideep Varma's HULLA were non starters. While SAAS BAHU AUR SENSEX had a poor to weak start, HULLA had a poor start across India. The two films are expected to be losers though thanks to its 1.50 crore budget Sunil Doshi's HULLA may scrape through to safety.

As we had indicated last week, Vikram Bhatt's 1920 is a true comeback for him as it has done quite well in spite of Ramzan. During the week the horror flick collected 1.15 crores from Bombay, 31 lakhs from Ahmedabad, 2.10 lakhs from Bharuch, 3.10 lakhs from Anand, 2.05 lakhs from Vapi, 1.35 lakhs from Patan, 1 lakh from Navsari, 1.50 lakhs from Mehsana, 6.50 lakhs from Baroda, 7.50 lakhs from Surat, 1.10 lakhs from Himmatnagar, 1.15 lakhs Nadiad, 5 lakhs from Rajkot, 1.75 lakhs from Jamnagar, 3 lakhs from Bhavnagar, 35 lakhs from Pune, 2 lakhs from Kolhapur, 1.15 lakhs from Solapur, 1.65 lakhs from Sangli, 4.75 lakhs from Nasik, 1.25 lakhs from Ahmednagar, 1.20 lakhs from Belgaum, 5.25 lakhs from Goa, 56 lakhs from Delhi city, 8 lakhs from Noida, 7.60 lakhs from Ghaziabad, 3.60 lakhs from Kanpur, 3.55 lakhs from Agra, 1.45 lakhs from Allahabad, 2.10 lakhs from Meerut, 1.85 lakhs from Gorakhpur, 1.70 lakhs from Amritsar, 8.50 lakhs from Gurgaon, 4.35 lakhs from Faridabad, 15 lakhs from Calcutta, 1 lakh from Guwahati, 8 lakhs from Nagpur, 1.30 lakhs from Amravati, 2 lakhs each from Raipur and Durg, 8.30 lakhs from Indore, 14 lakhs from Jaipur, 1.35 lakhs from Jodhpur, 1.50 lakhs from Bikaner, 2.80 lakhs from Hyderabad, 2.20 lakhs from Aurangabad, 1.30 lakhs from Nanded, 1.25 lakhs from Parbhani and 1.10 lakhs from Mangalore.
