Just a couple of weeks after six Hindi movies hit the screens at the same time and all of them bombed at the Box Office, here comes another three biggies like Chakravyuh, Ajab Gazabb Love and Rush, which have had a disheartening start at the Box Office in India. Their collection was worse than that of last week's release Student of the Year, which has overtaken them at the domestic business centres.
Chakravyuh was the next biggest directorial venture of Prakash Jha after Aarakshan and it was expected to start with a bang at the Box Office. But the film, which hit the screens on Dussehra holiday, on October 24, could not register a big opening. The movie has collected Rs 12.25 crores nett at the domestic collection centres in the first weekend. Its breakup is Rs 3.25 cr on Wed, Rs 2 cr on Thu, Rs 1.65 cr on Fri, Rs 2.50 cr on Sat and Rs 2.85 on Sun.
Romantic comedy Ajab Gazabb Love was promoted well and it was expected to get the best opening of the three new releases. Despite having a good word of mouth, the film has failed to make it big at the collection centres. It has raked in approximately Rs 4.25 crores at the desi Box Office in the first weekend. Its breakup is Rs 1.25 cr on Fri, Rs 1.40 cr on Sat and Rs 1.6 cr on Sun.
The worst of all the three movies is Rush, which stars Emraan Hashmi and Neha Dhupiya in leads. Emraan has scored two hits with Jannat 2 and Raaz 3, and this much-hyped film was expected to be his third hit in 2012. But it has received a worst opening and collected just Rs 2.10 crores at the desi Box Office in the first weekend. Its breakup is Rs 60 lakhs on Fri, Rs 70 lakhs on Sat and Rs 80 lakhs on Sun.
However, Chakravyuh, Ajab Gazabb Love and Rush have done very poor business at the domestic Box Office in the first weekend. From this, it has once again become clear that the bulk movie release would always result in poor show for all the films at the collection centres.
