This week’s two releases, Irrfan Khan’s BLACKMAIL and the Manoj Bajpayee and Tabu starrer MISSING, failed to embark on a good start. As expected BLACKMAIL lead the show with a 15 percent start while MISSING lagged far behind.
As things stand BLACKMAIL, which has already shown an uptick in collections during the latter shows, is likely end up as a success, based on the reviews and audience feedback, while the survival battle for MISSING will be tougher. What must be mentioned here is that both BLACKMAIL and MISSING took a hit from the still piping hot BAAGHI 2.
Meanwhile, Sajid Nadiadwala and Fox Star Studio’s production, Ahmed Khan directed Tiger Shroff starrer, BAAGHI 2, saw an amazing opening week, with the film netting 112 crore (to be validated. The film is sure to end up as a blockbuster hit.
Concluding with YRF’s Rani Mukerji starrer HICHKI, after a good opening week, the film continued it’s steady run by adding 12.50 crore, thus netting 39 crore in two weeks from India and is a clean hit. A very creditable effort indeed, given the not so audience friendly genre.
