This week saw two new releases, Yash Raj Films' (Y-Films) LUV KA THE END and Vikram Bhatt's Mahakshay starrer, HAUNTED 3D. Though it was obvious that HAUNTED 3D would dominate LUV KA THE END, but the extent of dominance turned out to be totally one sided.
HAUNTED 3D and LUV KA THE END
While the collections of HAUNTED 3D were average in the 2D version (20-45 percent), it was a totally different story as far as the 3D version is concerned as the occupancy varied from 60-70 to even 100 percent at some screens. More than that HAUNTED 3D brings great news for the leading man Mahakshay (Mimoh), who may not have delivered an Oscar worthy performance but the view is unanimous that it is a much improved and confident Mahakshay in HAUNTED 3D as opposed to the Mimoh of JIMMY!
Coming to LUV KA THE END, the film has ordinary collections (5-20 percent) and even the audience feedback has been quite negative.
Having said the above one has to mention here that the Hollywood venture FAST & FURIOUS 5 (RAFTAAR KA JUNOON 5 in Hindi) too has embarked on a good start and will give a tough fight to all the Hindi movies including HAUNTED 3D.
