MUMBAI: Toh Baat Pakki and Click, the two films that released this week, have had a very weak opening with around 15 – 20 per cent occupancy.
Both the films have failed to pull in the crowd and the response has been very bad. Most of the multiplexes are expecting not more than 20 – 25 per cent occupancy over the weekend. My Name is Khan, on the other hand, is still maintaining the box office specially in North India.
Speaking to Businessofcinema.com, Fun Cinemas COO Vishal Kapur said, "The opening of both the films has been very ordinary and we don"t expect more than 20 – 25 per cent over the weekend. My Name is Khan is still doing good."
Inox vice president programming and distribution Utpal Acharya added, "Both the films are not up to the mark, content wise Toh Baat Pakki is better but otherwise the collections have been very poor. My Name is Khan is still doing better though there has been a natural fall."
Cinemax India senior vice president Devang Sampat said, "The films are nothing great. The opening has been dismal with around 12 – 25 per cent, while My name is Khan is still doing well especially the evening and night shows."
All eyes are now on Excel Entertainment’s Kathik Calling Karthik, which stars Farhan Akhtar and Deepika Padukone and Teen Patti, which stars Amitabh Bachchan, Sir Ben Kingsley and R Madhavan.
