Bollywood has released 18 movies in November 2014, along with the October release "Happy New Year" (HNY) and four new releases such as "Kill Dil", "Happy Ending" (HE), "Chaar Sahibzaade" (CS), "Ungli" and "Zid", the month has fared well at the box office with the big money spinners.
"Rang Rasiya", "Chaar Sahibzaade", "The Shaukeens" and "A Decent Arrangement" released in theatres on 7 November. "Rang Rasiya" and "The Shaukeens" have turned out to be average grossers with their domestic collection reaching ₹5 crore and ₹32.06 crore respectively, while "A Decent Arrangement" fetched negligible numbers. Having collected ₹35 crore at the worldwide box office, "Chaar Sahibzaade" is one of the big hits of the month.
"Kill Dil", "Money Back Gurantee" and "6-5=2" hit the screens in the second week of the month. Among the three movies, "Kill Dil" got a superb opening and has made fantastic collections at the box office. Having collected ₹31.15 crore in the domestic market, the film is still faring well at the ticket counters. It has become another big money spinner of the month.
"Happy Ending", "Golu Aur Pappu", "Wah Taj", "Titoo MBA", "Darr Ke Aage Jeet Hai" and "The Real Dream Girl" released in theatres in the third week of the month. The Saif Ali Khan and Govinda starrer debuted with a huge response and fared well at the ticket counters, beating other new releases. The film has collected ₹21.89 crore at the Indian box office in 10 days.
"Ungli", "Zid", "Hum Hai Teen Khurafaati", "Zed Plus" and "Sulemani Keeda" hit the theatres in the fourth week. "Ungli" and "Zid" fared well and collected ₹12.65 crore and ₹8.60 crore respectively at the box office in their opening weekend, while others failed to take off.
Meanwhile, "Happy New Year", which released in theatres on 24 October, has done well in November. The Shah Rukh Khan starrer has collected more than ₹50 crore in the domestic box office this month, taking its domestic total to ₹204 crore.
However, Bollywood has shelled out around ₹200+ crore on the making of these 12 movies and the films have collected approximately ₹150 crore together from their theatrical run. They might rake in another ₹30+ crore in the next couple of weeks, but this might not make up for the huge loss.
