  - Abid           Let us know what you think about this box-office report
 

`Race 2`, the sequel to Abbas-Mustan`s highly successful `Race`, was expected to embark on a good if not great start. And that is how it has been! The Anil, Saif, John and Deepika starrer, Race 2`, has by and large seen a good start, with many multiplexes of Delhi-NCR and East Punjab seeing a great start.

 Inkaar  Verdict: Awaited
 Weekly Earnings: India 8.75 crore  Total Earnings: India 8.75 crore
 Director: Sudhir Mishra  Producer: Viacom 18 Motion Pictures
 Music: Shantanu Moitra  Lyrics: Swanand Kirkire
 Starring: Arjun Rampal, Chitrangada Singh, Vipin Sharma
 Genre: Thriller  Recommended Audience: Parental Guidance
Last Friday saw the release of Sudhir Mishra’s Arjun Rampal and Chitrangda Singh starrer, `Inkaar`. After a dull opening day (1.60 crore), the film failed to show any significant growth during the next two days, netting around 5.60 crore during the opening weekend from India. The film also had a big drop during the weekdays, and has little or no chances of survival.


 Mumbai Mirror & Bandook  Verdict: Disasters
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: -
The other two releases of the week, Viking Media & Entertainment Pvt. Ltd.’s Sachiin Joshi starrer `Mumbai Mirror` and the Aditya Om directed `Bandook`, fared worse, and are commercial disasters. In fact `Bandook` is a huge debacle and many shows had to be cancelled.

 Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola  Verdict: Below Average
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 8 crore ; UK£15,500  Total Earnings: India Rs. 40 crore ; UK£155,300 ; US$440,000
 PB Rating: 5.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 400 unique users): 5.17
 Director: Vishal Bhardwaj  Producer: Vishal Bhardwaj
 Music: Vishal Bhardwaj  Lyrics: Gulzar
 Starring: Imran Khan, Anushka Sharma, Pankaj Kapoor, Arya Babbar, Shabana Azmi
 Genre: Comedy  Recommended Audience: General
After a so-so opening week, the collections of Vishal Bhardwaj’s `Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola` saw a crash in the second week. The film will have to rely on non-theatrical rights for recoevery. The Pankaj, Shabana, Imran and Anushka starrer has also under-performed (better in US) in the overseas,

 Table No. 21  Verdict: Average
 Weekly Earnings: India 2.25 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 12 crore
Meanwhile Aditya Datt’s `Table No. 21` saw a big fall in the second week, after a decent (given the cost and cast) first week of 9.75 crore. The Paresh, Rajeev and Tena starrer is an average, as the Fiji government subsidy has reduced the costs further.

 Dabangg 2  Verdict: Blockbuster
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 2 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 153 crore ; UK£934,500 ; US$2,502,000
 PB Rating: 5.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 400 unique users): 5.17
 Director: Arbaaz Khan  Producer: Arbaaz Khan
 Music: Sajid-Wajid  Lyrics:
 Starring: Salman Khan, Sonakshi Sinha, Prakash Raj, Arbaaz Khan, Vinod Khanna
 Genre: Action  Recommended Audience:
Concluding with the Arbaaz Khan directed `Dabangg 2`, the film is ending its highly successful run. The Salman Khan, Sonakshi Sinha and Prakash Raj starrer is a super hit in the Overseas, with US being superb.
