Box Office Reports: ‘Helicopter Eela’ and ‘Tumbbad’ show growth; ‘Jalebi’ and ‘FryDay’ make a slow start
As the festive months start, it has been very crucial for the movies to make a good collection at the box office. Since September, we have seen releases of big movies in the same week as a result of which, there is tough competition at the box office. Last Friday, four movies released at the box office. One is Kajol and Ridhhi Sen’s ‘Helicopter Eela’, the second is Govinda and Varun Sharma starrer ‘FryDay’ and third and fourth is ‘Jalebi’ and ‘Tumbbad’.
‘Helicopter Eela’ had collected a scanty amount of Rs. 60 lakhs on Friday, Rs. 1 crore on Saturday and on Sunday, it saw a growth with Rs. 1.25 crore. The tally finally stands at Rs. 2.85 crore on its third day.
‘Tumbbad’ collected Rs 65 lakhs on Friday, Rs. 1.15 crore on Saturday and on Sunday it minted Rs. 1.45 crore. The total stands at 3. 25 crore on its third day. It is a small budget film but compared to the other three films, it has got rave reviews by the critics as well as the audiences.
‘FryDay’ is a total entertainer and it has all the elements a Govinda movie has. The film’s three-day collection is only Rs 1 crore whereas Bhatt’s production ‘Jalebi’ pocketed only Rs 1.50 crore in its first three days.
Next weekend will see the release of big-budget movies with a big star cast. These four movies will face a tough competition in the coming days.
