This week saw multiple releases in the form of Anurag Kashyap's Nawazuddin starrer RAMAN RAGHAV 2.0, A SCANDALL featuring Johny Baweja, Raja Bundela's DIL TOH DEEWANA HAI, Aerika Cineworks' Ananth Mahadevan directed ROUGH BOOK, Sandeepa Dhar starrer 7 HOURS TO GO and Vivek Agnihotri's Pulkit Samrat and Yami Gautam venture, JUNOONIYAT.
While none of the mentioned films made much headway, the front runner was (comparatively speaking), RAMAN RAGHAV 2.0 followed by JUNOONIYAT, though the collections are nothing to write home about.
Until and unless there is a big turnaround in their fortunes, even the two above mentioned films face tough days ahead, as the audience preferred the week old UDTA PUNJAB and Diljit Dosanjh's SARDAARJI 2 (Punjabi) in Delhi and East Punjab.
Meanwhile, after a good opening weekend (33.50 crore), last week's Abhishek Chaubey directed Shahid, Kareena, Alia and Diljit starrer, UDTA PUNJAB, saw quite steady weekdays and has ended the first week netting in the 48-49 crore range. The film is already a success (based on the worldwide run); how big or small time will tell.
