One expected a lot out of Baby considering the winning combination of Akshay Kumar and Neeraj Pandey but the film has been a disappointment in terms of it’s Box Office report.
The film managed to collect Rs 09.30 crore nett on Friday (January 23, 2015), on Saturday (January 24, 2015) the film managed Rs 11.17 crore nett, on Sunday (January 25, 2015) the film collected about Rs 15.60 crore nett, Monday (January 26, 2015) the collections took a slight dip and the film collected about Rs 14.90 crore nett, Tuesday (January 27, 2015) the collects fell drastically to about Rs 05.00 crore nett, on Wednesday (January 28, 2015) the film managed to garner Rs 04.55 crore nett and on Thursday (January 29, 2015) it collected Rs 04.06 crore nett; thus clocking about Rs 64.58 crore nett at the Domestic Box Office.
Baby managed to get good reviews and thus had a great head start in metros and urban multiplexes but due to it’s length the film kind of lost it’s way.
Baby could not garner a huge mass appeal and that’s why the collects have been below average. What worked in favour of the film was the nation holiday or else things would have been bad for the makers.
While Baby would certainly cross the lifetime total of Akshay’s last release Entertainment as well as his other film with Neeraj Pandey, Special 26, it has to be seen how far does it go from this point on.
Coming to Dolly Ki Doli, the film never carried great pre-release reports and with an almost plastic Sonam Kapoor the film sank at the Box Office at the end of week one.
The film managed to collect Rs 02.55 crore nett on Friday (January 23, 2015), on Saturday (January 24, 2015) the film managed Rs 03.44 crore nett, on Sunday (January 25, 2015) the film collected about Rs 04.76 crore nett, Monday (January 26, 2015) it collected about Rs 04.54 crore nett, on Tuesday (January 27, 2015) the collections fell to about Rs 01.52 crore nett, on Wednesday (January 28, 2015) the film managed to garner Rs 01.18 crore nett and on Thursday (January 29, 2015) it collected Rs 98 lacs nett; thus clocking about Rs 18.97 crore nett at the Domestic Box Office.
Dolly Ki Doli had a similar graph as compared to that of Sonam Kapoor’s last release Khoobsurat.
Both Baby and Dolly Ki Doli could have covered a much greater distance had there been enough content in them.
However, there are as many as three films releasing today (January 30, 2015) – Khamoshiyan, Hawaizaada and Rahasya, which would eat up a good chunk of screens and show timings.
Baby may still survive but Dolly Ki Doli will most definitely sink.
