Begum Jaan is poor at the box office, Fast and furious 8 is Super hit in India.
Last week’s main Hindi Release Begum Jaan is poor at the box office and despite low cost of production it is not going to make any profit theatrically which is a major setback for the producers of the film. Vidya Balan starrer has made only 15.52 cr in week one and going by the run so far it will not fetch more than 20-21 cr in its lifetime collections. The film is rejected by the masses and also by the critics that means this ‘so called’ content oriented film is a let down and now even those who claim to make small films with content are just trying to find ways of earning money rather than concentrating on the subject, the film is equally week in overseas too.
The Hollywood biggie Fast and Furious 8 has emerged as a Super hit in Indian Markets too and earned 65.45 cr ($10 Million USD approx) in its first week which is phenomenal. Again a Hollywood film overtook all the Hindi releases of the last week and infact the way it is moving on Indian box office, it might cross 80 crore mark too before Baahubali 2 takes over the proceedings. Fast and furious 8 is now 4th highest grossing film in India this year and this is a remarkable achievement, the movie has made $686 million USD so far worldwide and might be the 2nd film of Hollywood this year to touch $1000 million USD worldwide after Beauty and the Beast.
