Fenil's Bollywood Talk # 833

The box office came back to life last week with the release of Mr & Mrs Mahi, starring Rajkummar Rao and Janhvi Kapoor. The first day was aided by Cinema Lovers Day, when most theatres sold tickets for just Rs. 99. The industry expected the film to open at Rs. 5 crores but we had predicted that the figure could go higher. And that’s what happened. A day before release, the advance booking picked up big time.

Mr & Mrs Mahiended up opening at a huge Rs. 6.75 crores. Since so many people saw the film on the first day, there was a small drop in the next two days. The Saturday and Sunday collections were Rs. 4.50 crores and Rs. 5.50 crores respectively. The film held well on Monday, collecting Rs. 2 crores and Rs. 1.65 crores on Tuesday. The first week's collections are expected to be around Rs. 23 crores.

If Mr & Mrs Mahi holds strongly on the second Friday, then it can cross Srikanth’s collections. That film’s lifetime earnings are expected to be around Rs. 47-48 crores. Srikanth got three open weeks, which Mr & Mrs Mahi sadly won’t get.

Meanwhile, the big release this week is Munjya. It is a part of the horror comedy universe that also comprises Streeand Bhediya. It stars Sharvariand Abhay Verma along with Mona Singh in a supporting role. The film’s release happened suddenly. Around two weeks ago, the makers announced that the film would be released on June 7. The teaser and trailer were dropped digitally and no event took place of the film at all. Sharvari, however, extensively promoted the film. Her gorgeous avatar during promotions and her sensuous avatar in the song ‘Taras’ from Munjya have been noticed. Munjya is also special as the lead character is completely done through CGI.

However, the awareness of the film is very limited. The trailer hasn’t clicked well and the reason why people are somewhat excited is because of the horror genre and also as it's connected with Stree and Bhediya. The opening is expected to be around Rs. 1 crore.

The Hollywood release of the week is Bad Boys: Ride Or Die. The previous film of the series, Bad Boys For Life, collected around Rs. 10 crores in its lifetime in India, which is a healthy total. But the buzz for this film seems limited. It might grow if word of mouth is positive. It’s a mass film and hence, its Hindi version also has a chance.
