If we compare both the films at the end of their first weekend, then Dum Laga Ke Haisha has performed better than Ab Tak Chhappan 2.
Ab Tak Chhappan 2 is the sequel to Ab Tak Chhappan, that had released in the year 2004. Almost eleven years later, the sequel turned out to be a huge disaster. The only draw to this one was Nana Patekar who one last saw in The Attacks of 26/11 in the year 2013.
The Box Office collections for Ab Tak Chhappan 2 have been pegged at Rs 01.50 crore nett on Friday (February 27, 2015), Rs 01.40 crore nett on Saturday (February 28, 2105) and Rs 01.74 crore nett on Sunday (March 01, 2105); thus totalling up to Rs 04.64 crore nett at the end of it’s first weekend.
The film had a wide release, as it was screened in about one thousand four hundred screens, also the word of mouth of Ab Tak Chhappan 2 has been very bad.
With such dismal collections the film has been a total wash out.
Coming to Dum Laga Ke Haisha, well this film had a very low key release as per Yash Raj Films standards.
Dum Laga Ke Haisha was released in only seven hundred and eight nine screens and with no competition, this film is slowing catching up. Barring Ayushmann Khurrana, the film is fun and looks like everyone will go to see this film once.
Even though the film has been a show starter, it’s likely to do well at the Box Office. What’s good about this one is the fact that it made at a very low budget and not too much has been spent on the publicity.
The film has managed to collect Rs 01.11 crore nett on Friday (February 27, 2015), on Saturday (February 28, 2015) the film collected about Rs 02.12 crore nett and on Sunday (March 01, 2014) the film showed a marginal rise and collected about Rs 02.85 crore nett; thus making it a total of about Rs 06.08 crore nett at the end of its first weekend.
The content of Dum Laga Ke Haisha has attracted a lot of moviegoers and the word of mouth for this one has been good.
With this film we have a start in Bhumi Pednekar and we do hope to see her more in the near future.
Coming up next week, March 08, 2015 are films like Hey Bro, Badmashiyaan – Fun Never Ends, Coffee Bloom and Dirty Politics.
In all of this, Dum Laga Ke Haisha, would be the one to benefit!!
