This Friday’s new release, Kumar Mangat Pathak’s Sunny Singh starrer UJDA CHAMAN, could not quite make an impact, opening to around 10 percent on average with no appreciable pick up during the latter shows as the HOUSEFULL 4 dominated in a big.
Meanwhile after a decent to good (for the dull pre Diwali) 50 crore weekend, Fox Star Studios & Sajid Nadiadwala’s HOUSEFULL 4, starring Akshay, Bobby, Riteish, Kriti and Rana, picked up in a big way Monday onwards, and ended the opening week netting 138 crore (to be validated), and is a already a hit, on way to super hit! HOUSEFULL 4 has also impressed in the overseas, especially US, grossing $1,300,000 at the end of the first week.
Concluding with the other two Diwali releases, Reliance Entertainments’ Tapsee-Bhumi venture SAAND KI AANKH and the Dinesh Vijen produced Rajkummar- Mouni starrer MADE IN CHINA, the former dominated the latter as the two netted (approximately) 12 crore and 10.50 crore, respectively. From the two it is just SAAND KI AANKH which can still harbour some hopes of at least a coverage.
