All the new releases of the week, be it from India or overseas-MONSOON SHOOTOUT, GAME OF AYODHYA, MY FRIEND’S DULHANIA etc. or Hollywood’s iconic STAR WARS series- THE LAST JEDI, failed to impress the audience. The front runner (from India) was Anurag Kashyap’s Nawazuddin Siddiqui starrer, MONSOON SHOOTOUT, which could barely manage a below 10 percent start. What can then one say about the rest!
Even the latest offering from Hollywood, STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI, failed to cut much ice, though the 3D version fared much better.
Having said that, banking on the newfound star-power of Nawazuddin Siddiqui (in an Anurag Kashyap project), may just about surprise.
Meanwhile, last week’s Excel Entertainment venture, the Pulkit Samrat, Richa Chadda and Ali Fazal starrer , FUKREY RETURNS, continued to rock the box-office and has netted 50 crore plus during the opening week from India, and the way it has entered the second week, it is sure to end up as a super hit , despite the TIGER ZINDA HAI tsunami, which will strike the box-office next week.
