The coming Friday will witness three diverse releases, Irrfan Khan’s road trip movie KARWAAN, the hard hitting Anubhav Sinha directed Rishi-Taapsee starrer MULK and T-Series’ Anil, Aishwarya and Rajkummar Rao starrer, triumph of the underdog venture, FANNEY KHAN. As far as the pole position goes it’ll be a close fight between MULK and FANNEY KHAN, while KARWAAN too will find it’s loyal set of fans. Having said that, given that all the mentioned releases are of different genres, the audience is likely to be divided!

 

Checking out last week’s releases, Tigmanshu Dhulia’s Sanjay Dutt, Jimmy Sheirgill and Mahie Gill starrer SAHEB BIWI AUR GANGSTER 3 and T-Series and RD Entertainment’s NAWAABZAADE, the outcome was quite obvious. The much better performance (comparatively speaking) was put up by SBAG3 which managed a 6 crore opening weekend as opposed to NAWAABZAADE’s 2.10 crore. Having said that, SBAG 3 performance is below par while NAWAABZAADE faced outright rejection. In fact, the week belonged to the Hollywood venture, Tom Cruise’s MISSION : IMPOSSIBLE- FALLOUT (MI 6), which put up a spirited show netting 37 crore during the opening weekend thanks to brand MI and TOP GUN Tom Cruise’s popularity. As things stand, SBAG 3 will be lucky to get to a coverage status, even with the non theatrical rights, while the fate of NAWAABZAADE is crystal clear.

Meanwhile, after a good opening weekend Dharma Production’s Shashank Khaitan directed Ishaan and Janhvi starrer DHADAK maintained beautifully during the weekdays too as it collected 6.15 crore from Bombay (collections from cinemas unreceived), 1.75 crore from Ahmedabad, 75 lakhs from Surat, 45.25 lakhs from Baroda, 20.75 lakhs from Rajkot, 1.25 crore from Pune, 20.50 lakhs from Nasik, 28.50 lakhs from Goa, 5 lakhs from Belgaum, 3.85 crore from Delhi city, 1 crore from Noida, 87.50 lakhs from Ghaziabad, 53.25 lakhs from Kanpur,1.25 crore from Lucknow, 41.75 lakhs from Agra, 24.75 lakhs from Allahabad, 10 lakhs from Aligarh, 25 lakhs from Dehradun, 90 lakhs from Gurgaon, 43 lakhs from Faridabad, 3.25 lakhs from Kurukshetra, 7 lakhs from Panipat, 25 lakhs from Chandigarh, 10.50 lakhs from Jalandhar, 4.75 lakhs from Patiala, 11 lakhs from Amritsar, 17 lakhs from Ludhiana, 3.50 lakhs from Bhatinda, 2.50 lakhs from Ambala, 1.75 lakhs from Shimla, 5.75 lakhs from Jammu, 1.50 crore from Calcutta,2.50 lakhs from Darjeeling, 14.75 lakhs from Siliguri, 22.50 lakhs from Patna, 11 lakhs from Dhanbad, 22.50 lakhs from Ranchi, 11.25 lakhs from Bhubaneshwar, 20.50 lakhs from Guwahati, 12.25 lakhs from Muzaffarpur, 35 lakhs from Nagpur, 44.50 lakhs from Raipur, 80 lakhs from Indore, 25 lakhs from Gwalior, 50 lakhs from Bhopal(collections from 2 cinemas unrecieved), 1.50 crore from Jaipur (collections from 2 cinemas unrecieved), 25 lakhs from Jodhpur, 13.75 lakhs from Ajmer, 4.75 lakhs from Bikaner, 20.50 lakhs from Kota, 28 lakhs from Udaipur, 1.25 crore from Hyderabad, 20 lakhs from Aurangabad, 1.50 crore from Bangalore, 10.75 lakhs from Mangalore, 7.75 lakhs from Vijayawada, 11 lakhs from Visakhapatnam, 8.75 lakhs from Madras and 6.25 lakhs from Kochi.
