Lage Raho at the Box Office

    MUMBAI: Soon after the Ganpati celebrations, the film industry had to face inauspicious shradh period. Naksha and Dil Diya Hai, the two films that were released this week on September, opened to unfavourable response from both the classes and masses on the first day itself.


    The adventure film Naksha falls below the mark due to weak script and thin story line. Even the climax is a let down. Being an action film, it may get patronage in single screen cinemas in cities and small towns in the North. But looking at the production cost, the recovery looks beyond expectation. All over the film recorded 40 to 50 per cent collections.


    In Bombay, at New Excelsior (V.T.) (daily three shows) Naksha collected Rs 55,884 against the capacity of Rs 1,36,674 (41 per cent). In Minerva, the tale is similar. Against the capacity of Rs. 1,51,872 (daily three shows), the film grossed Rs. 61,676. Even in the suburbs Naksha met with the same fate. In Fame Adlabs (Andheri-W) the film collected Rs. 49,998 in four shows (Rs. 6,206; Rs. 7,480; Rs. 11,206 and Rs. 22,106). The total capacity here is said to be Rs. 1,28,000.


    Dil Diya Hai is a film with a love-story set in London. The charm of director Aditya Dutt, actors Emraan Hasmi, Ashmit Patel and Mithun Chakraborty with musical sensation Himesh Reshammiya could not find heart amongst the patrons. Overall the film managed 30 to 40 per cent collections.


    In Bombay, at Uday cinema (Ghatkopar) the film collected Rs. 23,022 in three shows against the capacity of Rs. 45,000 (51.16 per cent) while in Kamran (Kurla) the film managed Rs. 20,711 in four shows against Rs. 43,972 (47 per cent).


    Dubbed films Khooni Khanjar – an action film on martial arts and Khiladi – The One Man were also released. Bhojpuri film Chhaila Babuu starring Ayub Khan and Rani Chatterji too was released to lukewarm response.

    Lage Raho Munnabhai – the extension to Munnabhai M.B.B.S. could not touch the 100 per cent mark anywhere across the country. But overall the film managed to collect a share of Rs 60 million (Rs 6 crore). Bombay collected 88 per cent; Delhi 80 per cent; U.P. 84 to 90 per cent; East Punjab 52 per cent. C.P. Berar 75 per cent; C.I. 63 per cent; Rajasthan 85 per cent. South Circuit 93 per cent.
