Mulk and Karwaan have opened to abysmally low numbers at the box-office, with the former collecting Rs. 1.60 crore nett on day one, and the latter, Rs. 1.50 crore nett. Both films have performed worse than Fanney Khan, which is quite poor itself (2.15 crore nett), but they at least have some chance at survival since their landing costs are much lower than that film, but for that the jumps need to be huge over the weekend.

Muk is reporting very good word-of-mouth in most centers from metros to smaller towns to rural areas, so there’s a good possibility for it to grow well over the weekend. With landing costs of just 18 crore, the film has a sliver of hope at some profit if it does see those jumps, followed by good sustenance over the weekdays. Karwaan, with similar landing costs, will find it tougher to eke out even marginal profits on account of it holding zero appeal outside high-end multiplexes in A centers. Even if the film witnesses growth in these places, it’s unlikely to be large enough to help it break even, leave alone register profits.
