March 2nd Week Releases: How Has Bollywood Performed At The Box Office In The Past 10 Years?

Koimoi takes a journey down memory lane, reminiscing about Bollywood films which have rocked and bombed at the Box Office in the second week of March.

Hope everybody had a great Holi! The festival of colours brought with it an extended weekend giving an opportunity to travel enthusiasts to escape to nearby weekend getaways and breathe some fresh air. While the rest of India enjoyed Holi with gujia, gulaal and water-colour and balloons, Bollywood celebs added the glamour factor to the celebrations in Mumbai!

March 2nd Week Releases: How Has Bollywood Performed At The Box Office In The Past 10 Years?

On the film front, Bollywood’s Holi release Badrinath Ki Dulhania, which hit theatres on the 10th, has grossed a whopping Rs 73.66 crores in just one week! If this is the collection in the first week, we wonder what’s in store for its lifetime collection! While wishing more success to Alia, Varun and team Badrinath, we move on to recollect films released in the second week of March, which have rocked and shocked the box office in the last 10 years.

While March 2nd week has witnessed memorable hits like Kahaani and NH 10, it has unfortunately delivered several flop films which have faded into oblivion soon after their release. As I’ve said time and again that the box office is equally unpredictable as the human mind, some of these films bear testimony to that. Manoj Bajpayee starrer 1971 for instance bagged the National Film Award for Best Feature Film in Hindi that year but failed to leave a mark at the box office. Enough talking, let’s have a look at the numbers now!

*Plus – Film which recovers investment & yields some profit

A series of flops punctuated by a few hits— I must say that’s a disappointing performance. Shashank Khaitan’s second directorial in the Dulhania franchise, Badrinath Ki Dulhania is perhaps the biggest hit March week 2 has witnessed in the last 10 years after Sujoy Ghosh’s Kahaani. Varun Dhawan-Alia Bhatt’s jodi will perhaps make March second week a memorable time to release films! With already a whopping Rs 73.66 crores in its kitty, that too just in one week, the rom-com is on its way to create history.

Four films are releasing this week— Abbas-Mustan’s romantic thriller Machine, which marks the acting debut of filmmaker Abbas’ son Mustafa alongside Kiara Advani, Govinda’s Aa Gaya Hero, Mantra and Rajkummar Rao’s survival thriller Trapped, helmed by Vikramaditya Motwane. Let’s see how the new releases perform!
