Both the prominent new releases of the week, Raveena Tandon’s MAATR (selective screenings) and Sonakshi Sinha’s NOOR, failed to make much of an impact at the ticket window. The opening day occupancy hovered between 10-15 percent on an average, with not much improvement during the latter shows. Needless to add that both MAATR and NOOR face an uphill task at the box-office.
Meanwhile, last Friday’s Vidya Balan starrer, BEGUM JAAN, also struggled at the box-office netting 17-18 crore during the opening week from India. The film will be lucky to get to a coverage stats, even after accounting for non-theatrical rights.
Concluding with Vin Diesel’s FAST& FURIOUS 8 (dubbed), aptly titled as the THE FATE OF THE FURIOUS, the Hollywood venture, put up an impressive performance netting in the 68-70 crore range, during during the opening extended week, and is likely to end up as super hit venture, provided it manages another reasonable week.
