How did this week's releases 'Chashme Baddoor' and 'Rise of the Zombie' perform at the box office? We take a look...

BO performance of Chashme Baddoor
Verdict: Hit
All India collections: Rs 19.20 crore (opening weekend)

David Dhawan's Chashme Baddoor may have received flak from the critics but the audience seems to be giving him a thumbs up.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweets, "#ChashmeBaddoor passes 'Monday test'. Getting reports from various circuits that Mon has begun on a super note. Better than Fri

Adarsh earlier tweeted," #ChashmeBaddoor collected approx Rs. 19.20 cr nett in its opening weekend. Breakup: Fri 5.18 cr, Sat 6.27 cr, Sun *estimates* 7.75 cr. Fab! #ChashmeBaddoor CI: Fri 22.40 lacs, Sat 24.60 lacs, Sun 35.60 lacs ... Mysore circuit: Fri 21 lacs, Sat 34 lacs, Sun 40 lacs. Fab growth!"

With Saturday's collections making it past those of first day, Taran tweeted, "#ChashmeBaddoor has had a rocking Sunday. Better than Fri and Sat. Super growth in every circuit. Numbers being compiled!"

Made with a budget of Rs. 17 crore, the funny drama has been produced by Viacom 18 Motion Pictures. What seems to have worked in the favour of the movie is that the director revamped the script and set the story of Chashme Baddoor in Goa focusing on the current lot of youngsters and their lifestyle.

Verdict: Flop
All India collections: Rs 40.53 Crore

Sajid Khan's previous films have gone out to collect Rs 100 crore in a matter of few days but his latest film 'Himmatwala' despite boasting of a great star cast, has not been able to draw big collections at the box office. 'Himmatwala' has collected just Rs 40.53 Cr since its release.
