While ‘Mubarakan’ takes a leap, ‘Indu Sarkar’ remains low on collections

Laden with a fabulous ensemble cast of Anil Kapoor, Arjun Kapoor, Athiya Shetty, Ileana D’Cruz, Ratna Pathak Shah, and more, Anees Bazmee’s ‘Mubarakan’ has stirred up the interest of the specific massy audience which likes its comedies clean and not too intelligent. Hence, it was a bit of a damper when the movie could not open to good numbers on Friday. However, seems like word is going around of the laughter the movie is spreading, as the Saturday collections have gone up by 40-45%.

The movie, which earned around Rs 5 crore nett on its first day, jumped to Rs 7 crore on Saturday, taking the total collection to Rs 12 crore nett. Though it is not fabulous, but is promising, certainly. Let’s see if it can maintain the growth on coming weekdays.

What’s more shocking is the movie’s average performance in the circuits of North India, Delhi and Punjab, the masses of where the film majorly wished to cater. Anyway, after the good jump on Saturday, let’s hope it has a good boost on weekend which it can continue on the weekdays. For now, the chances of that are there, but bleak.

The other release was Madhur Bhandarkar’s ambitious take on Emergency period, ‘Indu Sarkar’. The movie failed to show any growth and collected mere Rs 1.05 crore, taking the total collection to Rs 1.90 crore nett. At this rate, the fate of the movie is sealed and looks like only a miracle can save it from being a disaster. (Also Read: ‘Mubarakan’ and ‘Indu Sarkar’ have a low opening at the box office)

Tiger Shroff and Nawazuddin Siddiqui-starrer ‘Munna Michael’, the collections of which went down by a margin of more than 95%. The movie could only collect around Rs 35 lakh, taking the total business to Rs 31 crore. One good ray of hope has been in the form of Alankrita Shrivastava’s ‘Lipstick Under My Burkha’ which has managed to be a hit, owing to the warm response, low budget, and amazing content.

Overall, not better days of Bollywood on box office. Let’s hope upcoming releases, major one being Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma-starrer, Imtiaz Ali’s ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’, bring some respite. Bollywood’s report card surely does not look great at the moment.
