While "Finding Fanny" showed good trend in its opening weekend, "Creature 3D" box office collection remained dull.
Deepika Padukone and Arjun Kapoor starrer "Finding Fanny" has put up a decent show at the box office in its opening weekend. The film had a slow start, but word of mouth helped the film pick its business on Saturday and Sunday.
On opening day, the film accumulated ₹5.1 crore, and next day the business of the film increased by 40 percent minting ₹7.05 crore. On Sunday the film didn't witness much growth, but it raked in ₹7.75 crore taking its overall total to ₹19.9 crore, according to Bollywood Hungama.
The English language quirky drama has been popular in metro cities including Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore.
"Finding Fanny has earned close to ₹10 crore. Masses won't go for movies like Finding Fanny. It is popular in big cities like Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore," Rajesh Thadani of Multimedia Combines told IANS.
While the film performed well in its opening weekend, the main challenge lies in its weekdays run. It remains to be seen if the film, which caters to mostly a niche audience, will survive during the weekdays.
The film directed by Homi Adajania also features Naseeruddin Shah, Pankaj Kapur and Dimple Kapadia in important roles.
The monster thriller film, which features Bipasha Basu in the lead role, managed to scare audiences away from theaters in its opening weekend. The film had a dull start compared to "Finding Fanny" and remained low in its opening weekend.
"The genre and 3D aspects are interesting, but the subject is not strong," Thadani said.
The opening weekend breakup of the film is: Friday ₹3.24 crore, Saturday ₹3.64 crore and Sunday ₹4.48 crore.
With its dull performance in its foremost weekend, there is a very less chance for the film to remain steady during weekdays.
