Madhuri Dixit starrer Dedh Ishqiya, not a typical masala movie, received rave reviews from the critics when it released on Friday (January 10, 2014) and collected about Rs 10 crore at the domestic box office.
Dimple Kapadia's What The Fish nor adult film star Sunny Leone-starrer Jackpot managed to pull in audiences to theatres over the last weekend. Both films failed to meet expectations, say experts.
Three releases came out at the weekend, but none could set the box office on fire, while director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, which has entered the Rs 100 crore club, continues to be the audience's favourite even in its fourth weekend.
Filmmakers tried to woo movie buffs with subjects as diverse as a revenge comedy, an erotic thriller, a tragic love story and a candyfloss campus romance this Friday (July 26, 2013), but audiences are still flocking to the halls to catch Bhaag Milkha Bhaag.
