The new releases of the week, GUDDU RANGEELA, SECOND HAND HUSBAND and BEZUBAAN ISHQ, fared as expected and predicted. It was the Arshad-Amit starrer, GUDDU RANGEELA, which was the front runner with a dull 20-25 percent start, followed by SECOND HAND HUSBAND (better in East Punjab). The third release, BEZUBAAN ISHQ, saw a poor start.

Obviously, it is just the Subhash Kapoor directed, GUDDU RANGEELA, which has some chances, and for that it has to show a good pick up during the two remaining days of the weekend, though it will not come anywhere close to the director’s last venture with Arshad Warsi, JOLLY LLB.
Meanwhile, Walt Disney Pictures and UTV Motion Pictures’ Remo Dsouza directed Varun Dhawan, Shraddha Kapoor and Prabhu Dheva starrer, ABCD- ANYBODY CAN DANCE 2, saw a reasonably steady second week with about 25 crore, thus netting 97 crore (to be validated) in two weeks from India, and is a super hit. The film is sure to hit a century during the third weekend.
Concluding with the Madhavan, Kangana and Deepak starrer, TANU WEDS MANU RETURNS, the film crossed the 150 crore mark at the Indian box-office and is not only an all time blockbuster, but the biggest hit of 2015, taking the return on investment into account.
