Dull week at the box office

New Delhi, Oct 28 (IANS) As many as six films released last Friday, but none of them could excite the viewers at the box office.

"Mickey Virus", which marked the debut of actors Manish Paul and Elli Avram in Bollywood, was the most talked about movie among those that released Oct 25. But the buzz wasn't sufficient to make the audiences catch the film.

"'Mickey Virus' collected Rs.4.75 crore (early estimates) net in its opening weekend," posted trade analyst Taran Adarsh on Twitter.

Directed by Saurabh Varma, the comedy-thriller has been made on a budget of Rs.11 crore, inclusive of publicity and advertising.

Other movies that hit the theatres Friday were Shekhar Ghosh's "Sooper Se Ooper" starring Vir Das, Gulshan Grover, Deepak Dobriyal, Kirti Kulhari and Yashpal Sharma; director Babloo Seshadri's "Wake Up India"; "Ishq Actually", which brought former TV actor Rajeev Khandelwal on the big screen once again; crime drama "Bull Bulbul Bandook"; and "Amdavad Junction" by director Apurv Bajpai.

"None of the movies performed well at the box office. The occupancy was extremely low. Average must have been only 10 percent. Weekdays were even worse. I don't think they will be played next week. The slots will most likely be given to 'Krrish 3'," Puneet Sahay of Spice Cinemas told IANS.

"Krrish 3", which will bring back Hrithik Roshan as a superhero on the big screen again, will release Friday and many are counting on it to do good.
