Mubarakan, Indu Sarkar box office report: Anees Bazmee's film races ahead of Madhur Bhandarkar's
Anees Bazmee's Mubarakan and Madhur Bhandarkar's Indu Sarkar clashed at the box-office and failed to leave a mark on the first day.
This Friday saw two films - Mubarakan and Indu Sarkar clash at the box-office. Mubarakan, with an ensemble cast consisting of Anil Kapoor, Arjun Kapoor, Athiya Shetty and Ileana D'Cruz was expected to leave a mark. Indu Sarkar, too, with its long battle with the CBFC and numerous controversies, was touted to shake things up. However, both films have had a tepid opening.
As per koimoi.com, Mubarakan could only garner Rs. 5.50 crore at the box-office. The film which has Arjun in a double role was expected to do well among masses.
Although, bogged down by a sluggish start, things could start looking up for this Anees Bazmee potboiler, since it is largely a family entertainer and could witness a rise in numbers during the weekend. The film was released in 2,50 screens in India and 475 screens overseas.
Indu Sarkar, a film against the backdrop of the 1975 Emergency, only managed a meager Rs. 1.42 crore at the box-office, as per koimoi.com. The film has Kirti Kulhari in the lead and Neil Nitin Mukesh, Supriya Vinod and Tota Roy Chowdhury in pivotal roles.
The poor performance of the film at the box-office is also being attributed to the cancellation of a lot of its shows due to opposition by political forces. Indu Sarkar needs a push to get back in the game.
As Lakhan- a street-smart Tapori and over-ambitious young man, Anil Kapoor played various shades. The actor beautifully aced his character arch and lit the screen with his infectious chemistry with Madhuri Dixit.
‘I do not want to be restricted by a certain stereotype or expectation,’ says Neil Nitin Mukesh as he turns 40
'I like being unpredictable,' says Neil Nitin Mukesh.
