Naam Shabana is decent at the box office, Poorna flops.
Last week’s main release Naam Shabana remained on a lower side throughout the week and made 27.18 crores which is decent keeping in mind the investment of the film and it may earn some profits for the makers. It is a prequel of Baby which had a release in January 2015 when PK was roaring and still made 90 crores, though that was below the expectations but nevertheless good because it received critical acclaim and earned some commission too. Coming back to Shabana, which has not received good reviews but will cross the 30 crore mark this week and let’s see how far it goes on the box office though life time will not go beyond 35 crores. Movie is below par in overseas and has made little over $1 million in week one.
Other release Poorna despite good reviews has been a washout and made only 82 lacs in the week 1 and life time will be just over a crore. While Phillauri in its second week completely died and added only 3.10 crores to take its total to 25.78 crores, that means it is a big flop and even Naam Shabana has performed better than it without any big face except for Akshay Kumar’s cameo.
