bollywood box office report of the week : 21 august 2015

Adv.

The coming Friday will witness a couple of interesting releases, Umesh Shukla’s Abhishek, Asin, Rishi and Zeeshan starrer ALL IS WELL and the Ketan Mehta directed Nawazuddin and Radhika biopic MANJHI – THE MOUNTAIN MAN. One feels that the front runner will be Aby baby’s ALL IS WELL (thanks to some good promotion and star cast) while the Dashrath Manjhi biopic MANJHI – THE MOUNTAIN MAN too is sure to find its audience, especially amongst the class audience.

Last week saw the release of the Karan Malhotra directed Akshay, Sidharth, Jacqueline and Jackie starrer BROTHERS. The film set the box-office rolling once again (post BAJRANGI BHAIJAAN), netting 52 crore during the opening weekend. BROTHERS has also maintained quite well during the weekdays and should end up netting over 70 crore (estimated) during the opening week. The film has also impressed in the overseas grossing $2.45 m with £142,000 from UK and $360,000 from the US, during the opening weekend (August 14-16).

The second release (limited), Siddhivinayak Cinevision’s Vinay Pathak starrer, GOUR HARI DASTAAN – THE FREEDOM FILE saw mind-blowing reviews but is unfortunately a washout at the box-office, wherever it released.
