Sunny Leone-starrer 'Ragini MMS 2', promoted as a 'horrex' -- a combination of horror and sex, had a good start at the ticket counters and experts are also recommending 'Lakshmi' and 'Ankhon Dekhi' as a must see.
'Ragini MMS 2'
'Ragini MMS 2' has collected about Rs.16 crore in two days.
“'Ragini MMS 2' has a solid start at the ticket window. Despite India versus Pakistan cricket match making a dent in business, Friday total is impressive. 'Ragini MMS 2' (earned on Friday) Rs.8.43 crore, Saturday Rs.7.50 crore. India business only,” tweeted trade analyst Taran Adarsh.
The movie hit the screens March 21, a day when most of the people were glued to their television sets to watch the India-Pakistan match in Bangladesh as part of ICC World Twenty20 tournament.
“'Ragini MMS 2' has sex, horror, comedy and hit music to ensure that it will prove a hit at the box-office,” trade analyst Komal Nahta tweeted.
Quirky drama 'Aankhon Dekhi', directed by filmmaker-actor Rajat Kapoor, has been lauded for its content, but its chances of box office success seem to be bleak.
“In two days, it must have collected less than Rs.15 lakh,” Thadani said.
Nahta is also not expecting it to hit the bull's eye. He tweeted: “'Ankhon Dekhi' is not commercial but has superb acting, ambience of mid-class family and excellent dialogues.”
Nagesh Kukunoor's 'Lakshmi' opened to rave reviews, but commercially it's not so viable. One hopes word of mouth helps the film as celebrities are lauding the movie on child prostitution, inspired by a real life story.
