While P Se PM Tak opened to disastrous numbers, Ishqedaariyan managed a poor opening of about five percent and Welcome 2 Karachi clocked about ten percent opening at the Box Office.
Talking about Welcome 2 Karachi, well this one has terrorism as it’s mainstay, but the film has been layered with comedy. The film started slowly owing to the success of Tanu Weds Manu Returns. Also the film neither got great reviews nor did it manage a great word of mouth and that showed at the ticket window.
The film appears to be of the opinion that politicians may be evil, but people are just people and neighbours ought to be there for each other.
It performed it’s best in Mumbai, but other cities such as Delhi, Rajasthan, Gujarat were quite low, this it received a lukewarm response at the Box Office.
Welcome 2 Karachi collected about Rs 50 lacs nett in paid previews on Thursday (May 28, 2015), then it collected Rs 01.45 cr nett on Friday (May 29, 2015), on Saturday (May 30, 2015) managed to collect Rs 01.55 crore nett and on Sunday (May 31, 2105) the film managed Rs 01.75 crore nett; thus, making it a total of about Rs 05.25 crore nett at the end of it’s first weekend.
Now going by the collections, amongst the new releases, Welcome 2 Karachi is the only film that managed to struggle and survived, but then this one too will be a losing proposition as far as the makers are concerned.
Released in around two thousand screens, the film has managed poor collections. Directed by Ashish R. Mohan, Welcome 2 Karachi has been made at an estimated cost of about Rs 25 crore.
However, Tanu Weds Manu Returns is still dominating the multiplexes and single screens and will for sure enter the 100 crore club.
Next week, June 05, 2015; we have the multi starrer, Dil Dhadakne Do up for release and we do hope that the film will do well at the Box Office, though the buzz around this one is not very great.
