However, it is Balaji's RAGINI MMS which has expectedly taken the lead, though the 20-25 percent start is nothing to write home about. The film did show a marked improvement towards the latter shows as the occupancies increased to 35-40 percent. Amongst the other releases it was Rajshri's LOVE U...MR. KALAKAAR which followed next but once again with dull collections. It must be added here that LOVE U...MR. KALAKKAR is doing quite decently at the single screens. The other two releases, STANLEY KA DABBA and SHAGIRD, have managed to get attention but only at select cinemas of Mumbai city and suburbs.
Trade predicts that from the four above mentioned releases it will be RAGINI MMS which will emerge as a clear success while LOVE U...MR. KALAKAAR may be a slow starrer but will appeal to the single screens, more so in the North, East and Central India.
Meanwhile Vikram Bhatt's Mahakshay starrer, HAUNTED 3D has already emerged as a success netting close to 14.75 crores in its opening week and is expected to improve its position further, especially from the 3D version.
