Box Office: Murder 2 has an excellent opening, Delhi Belly going strong

Murder 2 had a great opening at the Box Office with the first weekend collections of over 22 crore nett in India. The film has done tremendously well specially in single screens while multiplexes have also given good returns despite limited shows. Infact in terms of occupancy it has the second biggest opening of the year only after Salman Khan starrer Ready. Murder 2 had hit music but the buzz was missing so the opening did come as a bit of a surprise. Surely it has lot to do with it being a sequel to Murder which was a huge success so even though not much was publicised about the plot and story of the film people knew what to expect from it and it seems to have delivered on that.

UTV and Salman Khan produced Chillar Party did not have a good start at the Box Office but has shown constant growth in Box Office collections collecting nearly 3 crore nett over the weekend. The fact that both Delhi Belly and Murder 2 are adult films seems to have favored Chillar Party which is attracting family audience through good word of mouth.

Meanwhile Delhi Belly had a really good second weekend collecting over 10 crore nett at the Box Office after a brilliant first week of nearly 38 crore nett. Delhi Belly is expected to continue to do well even in weekdays like its first week but it will be interesting to see how it fares after the release of Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara which targets almost the same audience. Bbuddah Hoga Tera Baap collected nearly 2 crore in its second weekend. The Box Office collections have been less than impressive for the film but since its not a big budget film and has already got really good revenues by selling Satellite and other rights, it has earned profits for its investors.
