Box Office – Te3n has average weekend, though shows growth, Do Lafzon Ki Kahani is low
By Joginder Tuteja
It was a low beginning for Te3n on Friday (2.61 cr). However, the film grew well on Saturday (3.96 cr) and Sunday (4.55 cr), which was a positive sign for the Ribhu Dasgupta directed affair. With 11.13 crore coming over the weekend, the Sujoy Ghosh production has managed some sort of start at the least. That said, it needs to now consolidate really well for rest of the week as the below par start on Friday has pushed the film back by at least 3-4 crore. Ideally, the film’s weekend should have been at least 15 crore.
The film needs to maintain at least 2 crore every day for rest of the week so that there is good enough confidence in exhibitors to give it a decent number of shows in the second week. There is still uncertainty around the release of Udta Punjab and its delay would mean the best case scenario for Te3n so that it could gain more moolah in the lifetime run.
Other release of the week, Do Lafzon Ki Kahani, saw a poor start for itself and there wasn’t any major escalation during the rest of the weekend either. With around 3.25 crore* coming in, this is yet another Randeep Hooda starrer (after Main Aur Charles and Laal Rang) to not really do much at the Box Office.
*Final numbers awaited
