2015 has proved to be a disappointment for Bollywood as more than 70% films have flopped at the box office. But the recent month May has brought huge hopes as three movies have turned out to be big success.
Today a number of movies Welcome To Karachi, Ishqedarriyaan, P Se PM Tak, Chor Bazaari and Chaar Cutting were released. From this list only first two movies had some kind of opening.
WTK opened poorly at the box office. According to early estimates Welcome To Karachi Friday box office collection will be 1.40 crore.
Welcome To Karachi was released on Thursday and had paid previews in the late evening. It opened to 10% occupancy in the morning shows on Friday. The film did not show any improvement in the later day. The film had best opening in Mumbai and Guhjrat. Welcome To Karachi box office collection is extremely poor on day 1.
The film has no chance against Tanu Weds Manu Returns which was still very strong on its second Friday. TWMR has a strong hold and second week collection will be challenging some of the big budget mega star films.
Actually the WTK collection are better than expected but still it is a very low number. The film needs to show solid growth of above 70% on Saturday and Sunday to have any chance at the box office
Welcome To Karachi has received negative reviews and also it has not any buzz. So the film is unlikely to show any growth. Welcome To Karachi lifetime collection can be under 10 crore. Another Disaster for Jacky Bhagnani.
