Last week, many Bollywood, as well as Hollywood movies, got released all across India but none could spell their charm on the audiences and could hardly make any business at the box office. Amongst the other Hindi films were critically acclaimed Dear Maya and A Death in the Gunj that were liked by a handful of the audiences who love to watch intense and non-commercial cinema.
On their opening weekend, the movies Dear Maya and A Death in the Gunj made a slow paced move but the filmmakers were speculating it to improve on the weekdays or by the coming weekend.
Box office collection of Dear Maya
Manisha Koirala starrer, Dear Maya is a story of a only lonely woman who confides herself in her creepy mansion like house and refrains herself to put forth in the outer world until two teenagers from her neighborhood plays a silly prank with her. The girls write her love letters with a pseudonym giving her hopes to love and be loved by a man. The second half of the movie is interesting and has the climax to Maya’s fate. The movie has some really soulful track and a good story line accompanied by the great acting skills of Manisha Koirala but so much of great factors could only help the movie to fetch Rs 10 crore in first five days of its release at the box office.
Box office collection of A Death in the Gunj
A Death in the Gunj was a dream project of actor-turned- director Konkana Sen Sharma who made her debut with it but the movie experienced a crash landing at the box office as it couldn’t drag the audiences to the theatres. The movie is based on the story written by Konkana’s fathers Mukul Sharma and had received a good response at the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival. Though the movie, A Death in the Gunj had been screend at the 21st Busan International Film Festival and had got a thumbs up, it is now getting a cold response by the audiences. In the five days of its release, the movie could make a decent business at the box office and is anticipated to do a collection of Rs 10 crores by this weekend.
Though, both the movies, Dear Maya and A Death in the Gunj could make a decent collecetion at the box office in the first 5 days of their release but the filmmakers are hoping it to touch the mark of Rs 20 crore atleast by next week.
