‘Mukkabaaz’, ‘Kaalakaandi’ and ‘1921’ show a dull opening at the box office
Yesterday, three movies released in cinema halls namely ‘Mukkabaaz’, ‘Kaalakaandi’ and ‘1921’. None of the movies managed to register a good opening at the box office. The combined collections of all the three movies amounts to Rs 3 crore despite the fact that they had 3000 screens in totality.
It’s a clear indicator that Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif-starrer ‘Tiger Zinda Hai‘ is still ruling the roost when it comes to box office figures. And among the three new releases, Vikram Bhatt’s horror flick ‘1921’ earned the maximum numbers as it collected approximately Rs 1.50 crore nett.

Inspite of a few hiccups in its release, the movie still managed to earn the maximum amongst the three. However, if we have to compare it with the previous two films from the franchise, the numbers are still quite less.
Saif Ali Khan-starrer ‘Kaalakaandi’ did a business of Rs 1 crore nett which is too low a number to start with. Anurag Kashyap’s ‘Mukkabaaz’ did the lowest business amongst the three movies as it collected just Rs 75 lakhs nett on day 1. Now, let’s see how these movies pan out over the weekend.
