Both the week’s new releases, Mirzya and Tutak Tutak Tutiya are on the road to sustain huge losses for all those involved in the projects. Mirzya, which opened to dismal figures, dropped further on days two and three, which is devastating for a multiplex-targeted film. The trends are so poor that the producers may even struggle to recover the film’s marketing costs. Let’s not even get into how badly the distributors are going to suffer.
With a total weekend collection of approximately Rs. 6 crore nett against a decent budget, Mirzya is headed to be a complete washout and one of the years’ biggest disasters in the same vein as Mohenjo Daro, Fitoor, and Baar Baar Dekho. Harshvardhan Kapoor and Saiyami Kher’s acting stints have got off to the worst possible start.
Om the other hand, Tutak Tutak Tutiya showed a marginal spike in its weekend numbers to take its total to approximately Rs. 1.5 crore nett, but the day-wise collections themselves are so low that there’s literally no hope for the film breaking even. Just like Mirzya, Tutak Tutak Tutiya, too is already a rank disaster. However, since it’s a trilingual, the film could still recover its costs through its Tamil and Telugu versions.
On a more positive note, the flat-out rejection of both these films by the audience only augurs well for M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story, which will now retain more screens and will still remain the audience’s first choice till the big Diwali releases, Ae Dil hai Mushkil and Shivaay hit theaters.
