English Vinglish had a poor start of 20% though was better in the evening at premium multiplexes mainly the DT, PVR and Inox chains. The collections in smaller cities were awful. The film will pick up as reports are much better than the collections but it will have to be huge jumps to get a respectable weekend as starting point is so low.
Kismet Love Paisa Dill was also poor at 10% and has little chance of box office. The film did open a bit better in UP single screens but collections came down as the day went along.
OMG! Oh My God had a very good first week of around 35.50 crore nett and the second week has started very strongly. The film is set to dominate the box office for another week and heading for 60 crore nett plus business.
Kamaal Dhamaal Malamaal had a poor first week collecting around 7 crore nett. Despite no appreciation it also got benefit of holiday and collected 70-80 lakhs more than it would have on a normal week. FLOP
Heroine fell heavily in the second week as it collected around 3 crore nett taking it to 33 crore nettin two weeks. The film is unlikely to hit the 35 crore nett mark but was saved by a good start. BELOW AVERAGE
Barfi has sustained extremely well and collected around 15.75 crore nett in its third week taking its three week total to around 97 crore nett. The film will hit 100 crore in its fourth week and it could even be by Sunday. SUPER HIT
