ALONE STAYS DE­CENT

Starweek - - Star Barometer -

As pre­dicted last week, it was Alone that led the show at the box-of­fice. The hor­ror af­fair had a tar­get au­di­ence in mind and in that as­pect, the Bhushan Pa­tel film pretty much scored in the ter­ri­to­ries and the cen­ters where it was ex­pected to do well. As a re­sult, the film col­lected well at sin­gle screens, as a re­sult of which around ` 15 crore came in. The film has ba­si­cally a week to score well since Baby and Dolly Ki Doli ar­rive next (with chances of Mes­sen­ger of God com­ing in as well), which means count of shows would be cur­tailed in the sec­ond week. I had a low start, though it was still bet­ter than many other Tamil and Tel­ugu films that ar­rive in Hindi at a panIn­dia level. The word of mouth is av­er­age to good for the film and it man­aged to make a ` 7 crore week­end. In fact the film is go­ing in the same di­rec­tion as Ka­mal Haasan’s Vish­wa­roop which had sim­i­lar col­lec­tions and while ` 10 crore would be crossed, it would be in­ter­est­ing to see how far does it go from here. As ex­pected, both Sharafat Gayi Tel Lene and Crazy Cukkad Fam­ily were washouts on Day One it­self, though the Zayed Khan star­rer fetched bet­ter reviews than ex­pected. Much more planned pro­mo­tion, mar­ket­ing and re­lease could have helped its cause.
