‘Newton’ holds well on Monday while ‘Haseena Parkar’ and ‘Bhoomi’ fall even more
Among the new releases ‘Bhoomi’, ‘Newton’ and ‘Haseena Parkar’, only ‘Newton’ has managed to do decent business on Monday. The Rajkummar Rao-starrer, which is India’s official entry to the Oscars, has done a really good business over the first weekend. The Friday numbers of Rs 90 lakh got a boost on Saturday as the movie minted Rs 2.50 crore which was followed by even better numbers on Sunday, i.e. Rs 3.50 crore nett. Monday numbers saw a drop but that was expected. The movie raked in Rs 1.40 crore nett on Monday and we think it’s a decent drop. The total four day business of the movie stands at Rs 8.30 crore nett.
Talking about the other release ‘Haseena Parkar’, it had started off with Rs 1.37 crore nett which then went to Rs 1.40 crore on Saturday followed by Rs 1.45 crore on Sunday. The Monday numbers turned out to be even more disappointing as the movie raked in Rs 65 lakh nett. So, the total four day business stands at Rs 4.87 crore nett which is the lowest among all the three releases. (Also Read: Bhoomi movie review: Strong performances weighed down by messy execution)
Talking about the third release ‘Bhoomi’ starring Sanjay Dutt and Aditi Rao Hydari, the collections of the same fell drastically on Monday. The movie, which had started off with Rs 1.96 crore at the box office, did a business of Rs 2.25 crore on Saturday which then went to Rs 2.50 crore in Sunday. A drop was expected on Monday, but the movie witnessed a miserable drop, as it did a meager business of Rs 90 lakh, taking its total four-day business to Rs 7.61 crore nett.
Clearly, ‘Newton’ is the winner while ‘Bhoomi’ and ‘Haseena Parkar’ have turned out to be disappointing at the box office.
Also, a quick update on Kangana Ranaut‘s ‘Simran’ and Farhan Akhtar‘s ‘Lucknow Central’ which had released the previous week. ‘Simran’ did a business of Rs 1.25 crore nett in its second weekend taking the total business to Rs 15.03 crore nett whereas ‘Lucknow Central’ did a business of Rs 60 lakh in its second weekend which has taken its total business to Rs 11.14 crore nett.
