Trapped, Machine fails, Badrinath Ki Dulhania Hits Century.
Last week Hindi release Machine is a massive failure, Abbas-Mustan directed Machine which had substantial investment and made only 1.89 crores in week one and is a disaster. In comparison, Vikramaditya Motwane’s Trapped performed better but again for such a small film if it fails to add profit in week one this means it is a flop. Trapped made with a budget of 3 crores, earned only 2.29 crores in seven days and may not touch even the break-even point. Other Hindi film, Govinda’s comeback vehicle Aa Gaya Hero is such a big flop that the term disaster looks better in front of the box office result of the movie. It made 82 Lacs in week one which weep-worthy.
The big Hollywood release, Beauty And The Beast made 10.48 crores in its first week which good but still not up to the mark if we consider the size of the release of the movie in India. While Kong: Skull Island has so far made around 18 crores in two weeks and is now settled with this lifetime figure.
But the winner of the last week was again Badrinath Ki Dulhania which ruled the roost with 27.08 crores and took its total to 100.74 crores. With this century both the lead stars, Alia and Varun have consolidated their position as the brightest young actors of mainstream cinema. Varun Dhawan has not seen a flop so far which is a big achievement while Alia not only has hit after hit to her credit but also proved herself as a thinking and competent actor in the recent past.
