Amitabh Bachchan, Vidya Balan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui starrer suspense-thriller Te3n has opened with positive reviews by the critics. Despite some spectacular performance by Big B and the gripping story, Te3n opened on below par note with only Rs 2.61 crore came in on Day one which is not too good but then, it has a limited release across the country with only 1169 screens plus 373 overseas screens.
We shouldn’t forget that Te3n is also a small budget film which made only with Rs 25 crore. Also it is not a hardcore commercial film and only have a selected bunch of people who liked this genre. On that basis, these are ok performance and in the coming two days, some growth will definitely on cards and the collections would surely push around 10 crore.
The other release of the week is romantic-drama Do Lafzon Ki Kahaani which stars Randeep Hooda and Kajal Agarwal. With not much buzz among the people and less promotion, it was expected that the film will not has much scope at the box office and it has done a business of Rs 1.03 crore, which is very poor.
Meanwhile, the magic of Sajid-Farhad directorial comedy film Housefull 3 is continued after first week. On Friday, it collected Rs 3.40 crore at the Indian box office and taking its toll to Rs 83.60 crore.
Now, when the second weekend has arrived, the collections would take a good growth and it will get closer to the magical 100 crore club. It is interesting to see how many more days, it will take to reach that mark.
Also, one more question is arising on everyone’s mind that will Housefull 3 break the record of Airlift (Rs 127.80 crore) and becomes highest grosser of 2016. Only time will answer this question.
