Check out the box office collection report of "Holiday- A Solider is Never Off Duty", "Citylights", "X-Men: Days of Future Past" and "How To Train Your Dragon-2."
"Holiday- A Solider is Never Off Duty"
Akshay Kumar-Sonakshi Sinha's "Holiday" has minted ₹99.71 crore nett in 14 days at the Indian box office. The action entertainer has ended the second week on a good note despite new releases. Though the film's collections dropped on weekdays, it still managed to perform decent business and earned over ₹28 crore in its second week.
"#Holiday [Week 2] Fri 4.41 cr, Sat 6.34 cr, Sun 8.78 cr, Mon 3.19 cr, Tue 2.99 cr, Wed 2.75 cr, Thu 2.55 cr. Grand total: ₹ 99.71 cr nett," film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted.
The film will be surpassing the ₹100 crore mark on Friday at the Indian box office. It has to be seen whether the Kumar starrer will be able to cross "2 States" collections on the 15th day (20 June). The Arjun Kapoor-Alia Bhatt's romantic entertainer earned ₹102.13 crore as lifetime figures. If "Holiday" earns over ₹3 crore on Friday, the film will beat "2 States" collections and will emerge as the second highest grosser of 2014.
With the release of "Humshakals," one needs to wait and see how "Holiday" performs in its third week. The release of the comic caper will reduce the screen count for "Holiday," which in turn will affect its business.
Directed by Murugadoss, "Holiday" is about an army man who comes on a vacation to Mumbai and investigates a bomb blast on his own. He goes on a mission to track down and destroy a terrorist group who have planned various such attacks.
The film opened to mixed reviews from critics, but has received big thumbs up from the audience. It has turned out to be another hit for Murugadoss, whose debut Hindi flick "Ghajini" performed exceptionally well at the box office.
Rajkumar Rao-Patraleka starrer "Citylights," which hit the screens on 30 May, has minted ₹8.20 crore in three weeks at the Indian box office.
Directed by Hansal Mehta, "Citylights" is about a man who comes to Mumbai with his family to lead a better life. However, he faces numerous difficult situations upon arriving the city.
The film received mostly positive reviews from critics. It is still running in theatres even after three week and has managed to mint ₹8.20 crore.
"X-Men: Days of Future Past"
The Hollywood film has turned out to be a big hit in India by raking in ₹44.52 crore nett at the end of four weeks.
"X-Men: Days of Future Past," starring Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender and Halle Berry, opened to good reviews from critics upon its release on 23 May.
Despite clashing with Indian films including Rajinikanth's "Kochadaiiyaan" and Tiger Shroff's "Heropanti," the superhero flick has managed to hold well and rake in fantastic collections in the country. Not just the English version, but also other versions including Hindi, Tamil and Telugu have performed well at the box office.
"#XMen DOFP 4-week total: ₹ 44.52 cr nett. English, Hindi, Tamil, Telugu. India biz. HIT," Adarsh tweeted.
