First day box-office collection of ‘Aatma’

Supern Verma directed and Bipasha Basu and Nawazuddin Siddhique starrer ‘Aatma’ had a lukewarm start at the box-office. Despite receiving good remarks from critics, the film could not start off well at the box-office. In the opening Friday, ‘Aatma’ could make only Rs 1.50 crores at the domestic box-office.

Last week release, ‘Jolly LLB’ is still running strong at the box-office and ‘Aatma’ failed to compete with the last release. The numbers are bit higher in single screens as compared to multiplexes.

The other release ‘Rangrezz’ also failed to score high at the box-office. Though both the films are of different genre, still audience is not showing interest. For Bipasha Basu factor, cine-goers are showing some interest in the horror flick but ‘Rangrezz’ totally doomed at the box-office.

Today being a Saturday, it is hoped that the collection might pick up on Saturday and Sunday and it will give an impressive first weekend collection.

‘Aatma’ is an unconventional horror flick. The story revolves around a single mother and her daughter. Their happy life turns hell when the girl child is haunted by ghost.
