After completing the first glorious week on the box office, Asim Raza’s coming of the age drama Ho Mann Jahaan did well in the second week as well. However, there was a significant decline in the number of screens and the occupancy in single and multi screen cinemas across the country.
The film crossed the 10 crore mark and became the 7th highest grossing film (domestic) at the end of the second week, surpassing Mahira Khan’s another film Bin Roye.
The domestic collections of two weeks grossed around 10.9 crore. These are considered as fairly decent and overall encouraging for the film which received generally positive reviews despite being over-stretched. The length of the film impacts the number of shows per screen and thus the collections directly.
The breakdown of the two week collections, compiled from the numbers shared by Box Office Detail, is given below:
- Day 1 (Fri) – 1.4 crore
- Day 2 (Sat) – 1.5 crore
- Day 3 (Sun) – 1.25 crore
- Day 4-7 (Mon-Thu) – 2.45 crore
- Week 2 (Fri-Thu) – 4.32 crore
- Total – 10.92 crore
The film received the lukewarm response in single screen cinemas in the second week but it kept the decent occupancy of around 60% in multiplexes, showing the downtrend from the first week but still good for such a long film. This trend will continue in the third week which will decisive about the lifetime collections of the film.
It will be interesting to see if Ho Mann Jahaan beats Yasir Nawaz’s Wrong Number by earning more than 15 crore and becomes the 4th highest grossing film. It looks like little difficult but adequately possible target for a multi-starer film which has names as big as Mahira Khan, Fawad Khan and Sonya Jahaan associated with it.
