Today the Bollywood witnessed a mid and low budget films , which included Machine, Trapped and the Aa Gaya Hero. But none of them has been able to even take an opening. Again it is a Hollywood film which has dominated as far the initial is concerned. Now, let’s talk about the first film, Machine. Abbas-Mastan’s Machine marked the debut of their son Mustafa. But the film has opened to a poor start. The overall occupancy in the morning shows is 5-10%. At many places, shows are canceled due to the no audience. It has also received very poor reviews and has been labeled as the worst film of 2017. It will be a miracle if the film survived at the box office.
As per reports, the first day collection of Machine tolled to around 1.3 crores, which is the similar figure as expected by the trade pundits. Now talking about the other film Trapped, it had practically no audience at all in the morning shows as the occupancy was 1-2%. It again raises the question that why producers are even releasing the film in theaters as they could have released it on the internet and made some bucks. As per reports, 1st day box office collection for Trapped tolled to around 50 lakhs.
There was also a Hollywood film Beauty and The Beast which has better occupancy as compared to all films. It is also releasing in a good number of screens and can improve in the evening as the film is for kids and families. Last week’s release Badrinath Ki Dulhania has maintained a decent hold on 2nd Friday too. It will come out with higher collection today as compared to the combined collection of all new Bollywood releases.
