As the festival season has kicked off in India, more and more Bollywood films are clashing which is eating into each other’s business. Yesterday we saw yet another battle between three significant films -Sonam Kapoor and Dulquer Salman starrer The Zoya Factor, debutant Karan Deol and Sahher Bambba starrer Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas And multi-starrer Prassthanam. None of the film opened well at the box office.
The Zoya Factor
Based on the popular book of same name, The Zoya Factor had a promising trailer, star cast and interesting plot. Unfortunately, the reviews have been lackluster and the comedy drama opened to just 5-10% occupancy across India. The Sonam Kapoor and Dulquer Salman starrer could not do much in the evening and night shows and ended with just Rs 1.50 crore. The budget of Zoya Factor is 30 Crore (Production Cost: 20 Crore & Prints & Advertising Cost: 10 Crore)
Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas
Directed by Sunny Deol, Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas marks the debut of his son Karan Deol and Sahher Vambba. Shot in the beautiful locations of India, Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas was well promoted and adequately supported by the Bollywood celebs. Unfortunately, all that glitters is not gold. Met by bad reviews, Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas opened at 5% occupancy in the morning shows.
The film picked up slightly towards the end of the day and minted Rs 1.85-2 crore. The budget of Karan Deol and Sahher Bambba starrer Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas is Rs 30 crore.
Prassthanam stars Sanjay Dutt, Ali Fazal, Manisha Koirala and Jackie Shroff. Despite, the big star cast, the political drama opened to a bad response, somewhere between to 5-10% occupancy. It got some traction from the mass circuit and ended its first day collections with Rs 1.50-1.70 crore.
The budget of Prassthatham is Rs 40 crore. The previous superstars – Chhichhore and Dream Girl continued remained the number one priority for the movie goers which we will cover in our next section.
