Bhoothnath Returns with a Great Opening
Though the first day of the Bhoothnath Returns was not as good as expected by the producers but the film gradually improved its performance on weekend and made a good 16.50 Crore. While many would not find these numbers intimidating but the reason why we call it a pretty good performance of bhoothnath returns is that the original film “Bhoothnath” itself was not able to cross the 15 crore mark in 2008 on its first weekend. Plus the film stars veteran actor Amitabh bachchan and 16.50 crore is quiet a feat achieved by the legendary actor at this age. The Amitabh effect could be seen by the fact that Bhoothnath returns has given a pretty tough competition to Varun Dhawan’s Main tera hero and has forced the film to do a business of just 5 crore this weekend.
Varun Dhawan’s Main tera hero which is directed by his father David dhawan and stars Ilena D Cruj and Nargis fakhri in lead roles has crossed a total of 36 crores at box office and has thus become the 6th highest grossing film of the year 2014 till date. While the figures are not as dashing as Varun himself yet it is quiet a satisfactory performance for an actor in his second film. Some critics has even called varun as ‘Govinda’s talent in Salman’s Body’.
Amitabh Bachchan’s Bhoothnath returns has got much favorable reviews as compared to its original Bhoothnath. The sequel Bhoothnath returns is expected to break the lifetime gross record of 25 crore of Bhoothnath this week. Good News is that No big film is releasing this friday apart from Alia Bhatt and Arjun Kapoor starrer 2 States. Bad News is that IPL season 7 is going to start this week and History has it that Cricket has a very bad effect on a bollywood box office. Lets see if Bhoothnath Returns will continue its magic this week too.
