Action, sobriety click at the box office

MUMBAI: This Friday had its own share of apprehensions. But in the bargain, the box-office had a satisfactory run as far as the earnings were concerned.

Shootout At Lokhandwala managed to rake in more than 75 to 85 per cent collections in most of the territories. In Bombay city and suburbs including Thane, the Sippys had reasons to rejoice. The film collected around Rs 42.1 million (Rs 4.21 crore) in this area alone.

On the other hand, Cheeni Kum, had a dull start at the box-office, but managed to garner good collections. It collected around 60 to 70 per cent all over. In Bombay, including Thane, thanks to the multiplex culture, the film grossed around Rs 21.1 million (Rs 2.11 crore) in its first week.

The multi-starrer Fool N Final, an action film blended with comedy, opened to mixed responses. The film seems to be inspired by a Hollywood film, Snatch. Director Ahmed Khan fails to deliver in spite of the huge cast and resources at his disposal. The main drawback is the lackluster story idea. The opening is average and the film is expected to do well in the interiors. Shree Ashtavinayak Cinevision Ltd has released the film in the entire Bombay circuits with 108 prints.

In Mumbai at the Liberty Cinema, the film which opened in three shows collected Rs 1,21,021 on the opening day and registered around 77 per cent collections; while Geeta cinema in Worli collected around Rs 74,000 which is 61 per cent.

Kalpana cinema in Kurla collected around Rs 65,000 (48 per cent) while Ashish in Chembur collected 42 per cent with a figure of Rs 40,587 in its first four shows.

Pirates Of The Caribbean: At World’s End, the English and dubbed versions, opened to a flying start in Bombay and many other places like Nagpur, Indore, Jaipur and others. After setting a box office record in the US, the film opened in India with 320 prints in comparison to Spider-Man 3‘s 597 prints.
