Last week's three releases met with negligible audience response, marking a disastrous end to a month which saw three big hits — 'Gabbar Is Back', 'Piku' and 'Tanu Weds Manu Returns'.

Arshad Warsi and Jackky Bhagnani-starrer 'Welcome To Karachi' had a dull opening followed by an equally poor weekend (Rs 5.50 crore). On the other hand, 'Ishqedarriyaan' and 'P Se PM Tak' struggled to find takers.

Trade expert Amod Mehra says, "All three films bombed at the box office. 'Welcome To Karachi' did some business, which isn't enough to be termed as an average. The two other films could not collect even respectable figures."

On the brighter side, 'Tanu Weds Manu Returns' (TWMR) continues to see a footfall rush. Starring Kangana Ranaut in a double role, the film has collected Rs 103.47 crore so far and set a few collection records as well — highest weekend, biggest Monday and best cumulative weekdays.

It has already crossed Rs 100-crore mark worldwide. A trade source says, "This year, only three other films, 'Baby', 'Gabbar Is Back' and 'Piku' have managed to break into Rs 100-crore league worldwide. But TWMR has been the fastest to do so."
