It has been a slow ride for Inkaar at the box office this weekend. The Sudhir Mishra film had earned Rs. 1.65 crore on the opening day i.e Janaury 18 and slowly made Rs. 6.35 crore over the weekend, tweeted Taran Adarsh, trade analyst.

The breakup goes something like this: Fri 1.75 cr, Sat 2.10 cr, Sun 2.50 cr.

The new releases, Inkaar, Mumbai Mirror and Bandook, opened to dull houses across the country. The opening of Inkaar, which seems to have found flavor in the preview screenings prior to its release, was slightly better at select plexes. However, the overall numbers were extremely poor. The films will need a miraculous pick up at the ticket window to sustain in the coming days.

Movie trailers are usually meant to create a buzz and set expectations among audiences high. But the promo for Arjun Rampal and Chitrangda Singh’s next film, Inkaar, has ended up going through more than four additional cuts, thanks to the sizzling on-screen chemistry between the two.

Inkaar, which is about sexual harassment at the workplace, will see Arjun and Chitrangda battle it out in a war of the sexes.
