This week we see the release of two starkly different films namely UNGLI and ZID. While one deals with certain social evils and messages the other has been making headlines for its erotic content. Apart from these two, this week the audience also has the choice of two Hollywood releases MOCKINGJAY and PENGUINS OF MADAGASCAR.
As expected continuing the usual trend of Bollywood films taking a better opening in morning shows UNGLI has opened slightly better than ZID, though the film started on a sluggish pace. ZID on the other hand despite its headline grabbing content has opened on a poor note. However while the Bollywood releases cater to a rather niche audience, the Hollywood releases that belong to the action (MOCKINGJAY) and comedy genre (PENGUINS OF MADAGASCAR), show a better potential of attracting footfalls over evening and night shows.
On the whole with not so favourable reviews for both the Hindi releases, the chances of both the movies attracting greater footfalls from evening shows appears a distant possibility, but the English releases MOCKINGJAY and PENGUINS OF MADAGASCAR are expected to perform on a much better note over the weekend.
