New Delhi: Last week's releases have fallen flat at the box office. And with five new Bollywood films at the cinemas this week, there's plenty for movie lovers to chose from. However, the opening collections tell a different story.
Mohit Suri's Woh Lamhe, based on the relationship of his uncle Mahesh Bhatt and Bollywood siren Parveen Babi, is the only one of the five to open decently.
It opened in multiplexes in Delhi and Bombay with 75 - 95 per cent collections, averaging 35 - 40 per cent collections in other places.
Ahmed Siddiqui's Jai Santoshi Maa, the remake of the 1975 blockbuster, opened with a dismal 1-1.5 percent collections and the animated film Krishna hasn't done better either with opening collections of about 3 per cent.
Amol Palekar's Quest which deals with the theme of homosexuality and the Anupam Kher starrer American Blend have opened to empty theatres.
Last week's releases haven't caught on with audiences either.
Despite getting a thumbs up from the critics, Anupum Kher - Boman Irani starrer Khosla Ka Ghosla has only managed 15-17 percent collections in its first week.
Zayed Khan starrer Rocky has brought in a meager 10-15 per cent collections.
Nagesh Kukunoor's Dor has raked in below average collections of 20-25 percent in Bombay while managing only 15 percent in other parts of the country in its first week.
