It is going to be yet another decent week for both Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar and Mrs. Chatterjee vs Norway as there was very good hold demonstrated on Friday. As a matter of fact, both the films actually ended up collecting better than Thursday which is good trending because when the collections are on the lower side then such things do matter for a consistent week ahead.
This can well be seen from the fact that after bringing in Rs 0.82 crores on Thursday, Mrs. Chatterjee vs Norway collected Rs 0.90 crores on Friday. It missed the Rs 1 crores mark by a whisker but will cross that comfortably and even go past the Rs 1.50 crores mark today. The Rani Mukherji starrer has been liked amongst the elite, its target audience, and though the collections haven't taken off in a big way that could have resulted in another Hichki [Rs 46 crores] or a Mardaani [Rs 35.82 crores], it should end up doing at least half of the former which is decent enough for this sort of film.
As for Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar, again the collections should have ideally aimed for a Rs 150 crores+ lifetime. In fact, had the footfalls soared big time, which was the expectations even after gauging audience reactions on the opening day, then even Rs 200 crores+ total seemed like a possibility. After all, it's indeed the kind of entertainer which hasn't been seen for long. However, the overall collections will just about cross the Rs 130 crores mark. Thankfully that would happen comfortably now as Rs 121.34 crores* have been collected after Friday numbers of Rs 2.10 crores*.
*Estimates. Final numbers awaited
