Box Office: While ‘Baazaar’ exceeds expectations, other releases sink without a trace

This weekend saw a flurry of films getting released. ‘Baazaar’, ‘Kaashi’, ‘5 Weddings’ and ‘Dussehra’ were among the movies which released. While Saif Ali Khan‘s ‘Baazaar’ fared well, the other three sank without a trace. Despite having known faces like Sharman Joshi, Rajkummar Rao and Neil Nitin Mukesh respectively, the films earned a combined total of less than Rs. 50 lakhs according to Bollywood Hungama.

In a tweet, Taran Adarsh wrote, “ had an extremely poor start in the morning shows, but picked up pace during the course of the day… Has fared much better than the recent Saif Ali Khan starrers… Mumbai circuit is driving the biz… Fri ₹ 3.07 cr. India biz.”

In our review of Baazaar, we wrote, “While ‘Baazaar’ has its fair share of loopholes, it does what gripping thrillers are supposed to do. It sucks you into its world and keeps you on the edge of your seat. It’s not every day that we see a Bollywood film themed around a stock market and this is a film which will not disappoint professionals from Dalal Street.”

Here’s hoping that ‘Baazaar’ picks up speed over the weekend with positive word of mouth publicity.
