'Force' & 'Saheb Biwi aur Gangster' break even

IndiaGlitz [Monday, October 10, 2011]

Amongst the five films that had released a week ago, only 'Force' and to some extent 'Saheb Biwi aur Gangster' have managed to keep their head over water. The other three releases of the week - 'Hum Tum Shabana', 'Tere Mere Phere' and 'Chargesheet' - have all been losing prepositions.

The way John Abraham starrer 'Force' had opened on Friday, it seemed that the film would show good momentum building over the weekend. While growth in collections wasn't as good as one would have thought, the film still managed to stay steady over the weekdays, hence keeping it's head over the water and registering decent numbers as the first week came to a close. With over 22 crores coming in, the film has now done reasonably well to be at least a coverage affair. For a film that came with limited promotion and hardly any marketing, these are good numbers that take 'Force' past the safety mark.

On the other hand 'Saheb Biwi aur Gangster' revelled from positive word of mouth with no one really calling it bad at all. For a film like this it is always audience feedback that does the trick and ditto was the case for this Jimmy Sheirgill-Mahie Gill-Randeep Hooda starrer that accumulated a little over 5 crores to show some willpower when it came to staying steady at the box office. In a way the film has pretty much formed a graph similar to that of 'Yeh Saali Zindagi' that belonged to the same genre, boasted of a budget in the same range and enjoyed almost the same box office returns. Though the film would be a merely coverage affair, it is still as good as a hit for all involved as there has been tremendous critical acclaim that this Tigmanshu Dhulia directed affair has enjoyed.

Tusshar Kapoor, Minissha Lamba and Shreyas Talpade weren't even half as lucky, what with 'Hum Tum Shabana' completely crashing over the weekdays. If the opening weekend was pathetic, days to follow were further embarassing, hence leading to first week's collections of a mere 2 crores. A box office disaster, this is quite a poor fate of a film that may just have enjoyed somewhat better collections had it not arrived amidst a crowd and then entirely get massacred by the critics. After all, there have been far worse films that have done better than this Sagar Bellary comedy.

One doesn't carry similar sentiments for 'Tere Mere Phere' or 'Chargesheet' though, both of which were rightly ignored by the audience and eventually turned out to be deserving box office disasters.
