[tps_footer]Three Bollywood films – Radhika Apte’s ‘Phobia’, Ram Gopal Verma’s ‘Veerappan’ and Kalki Koechlin-Naseeruddin Shah’s ‘Waiting’ have released and all the three films failed to create any magic at the Box Office. All the three content oriented films opened to a very poor collection at the Box Office on its first day. RGV’s ‘Veerappan’ has been called as his best film so far by the critics but the film managed to collect decent collection during the weekend.
Kalki’s ‘Waiting’ collected approx. Rs 1.25 crore (12 million) on its first weekend while Radhika Apte’s ‘Phobia’ is heading few numbers ahead and has collected approx. Rs 1.50 crore (15 million). On the other hand, Ram Gopal Verma’s ‘Veerappan’ managed to collect Rs 4.40 crore (44 million) on its first weekend, which is actually very disappointing.
With the kind of reviews ‘Veerappan’ is receiving, it was expected that the film might show a good growth during the weekend but it miserably failed to do so. On the other hand, ‘Phobia’ and ‘Waiting’ showed a good growth on Saturday but could not mint decent numbers at the Box Office during the weekend due to poor opening. The characters of the each film have been widely appreciated by the critics but it seems this did not help the films to mint good numbers at the Box Office.[/tps_footer]
