'Bang Bang!' and 'Haider' gave smashing start to October, but series of films released after them have failed to create the buzz which these two films did. Let's check the fortune of last Friday's release, 'Sonali Cable' and 'Mumbai 125 KM' at the box-office.
'Sonali Cable' was an attempt of Charudutt Acharya to project the battle of small entrepreneurs against the big corporate, with some flakes of romance cuddling between Rhea Chakraborty and Ali Fazal. Low face value acquired 15% occupancy on the first day earning 14 lakhs followed by second day's pathetic collection of 16 lakhs and 18 lakhs on third day. Therefore, first weekend box-office collection of 'Sonali Cable' is Rupees 48 lakhs.
'Mumbai 125 KM' is the fusion of sex and horror, which gradually attracted young audience to the theatre. But, the high budget of 3-D effects and P & A cost of the film seem difficult to recover as on the first day it collected 42 lakhs. On second day collection remained 48 lakhs and third day collection had its limit till 55 lakhs. Thus, over a weekend 'Mumbai 125 KM' made the business of Rupees 1.45 Cr nett at the box-office.
These low days won't last as masala-entertainer 'Happy New Year' will be marking its release on upcoming Friday to treat the audience on Diwali.
