This week we see the release of two starkly contrasting films PIKU and KUCH KUCH LOCHA HAI (KKLH). While the first directed by Shoojit Sircar featuring Amitabh Bachchan, Deepika Padukone and Irrfan Khan heralds the return of drama, the latter KKLH directed by Devang Dholakia featuring Sunny Leone and Ram Kapoor is said to be a comic entertainer.
As expected PIKU, that has been in the news has opened to a strong start with morning shows featuring an occupancy rate of 40%. However KKLH has started on a slow note with a meager 20% occupancy rate, while Akshay Kumar's GABBAR IS BACK that continues its run at the box office fares much better.
On the whole, PIKU is expected to dominate the weekend, while GABBAR IS BACK will hold strong. KKLH on the other hand will have to rely heavily on positive reviews and good word of mouth to compete with the other films.
