Mohalla Assi is a no-show at the box office. This was always on the cards and the release was a mere formality. This wasn’t even the kind of film where reviews would have made any difference. Moreover, with that too not being favourable for the film, it was pretty much a dead end for the Sunny Deol starrer.
This was evidenced from yet another terrible day for this film directed by Dr. Chandraprakash Dwivedi which collected only 25 lakhs on its second day. With this the total has reached Rs. 50 lakhs and the weekend would be less than even Rs. 1 crore.
As for Pihu, the film saw little growth on its second day with Rs. 50 lakhs coming in. For some sustenance, it had to touch at least Rs. 95 lakhs on Saturday.
The film’s total currently stands at 95 lakhs and would struggle to reach 2 crore before it enters the weekdays. A much bigger jump would be desirable for this Vinod Kapri directed film which has relatively low costs and hence can benefit from some kind of a theatrical run at the box office.
