Mumbai: Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor starrer family-comedy drama ‘102 Not Out’ received a good response from the audiences at the box office over its first weekend.

After taking an opening of Rs 3.52 crores, the film took a decent jump earning Rs 5.53 crores on Saturday and more than doubling Friday collections on Sunday by minting Rs 7.60 crores.

‘102 Not Out’ now stands at a total collection of Rs 16.65 crores, according to trade analyst Taran Adarsh.

After majority of the critics praised the Umesh Shukla directorial, it seems the audiences are also lapping up to the tale of the goofy elderly men.

On the other hand, the other release of the week, ‘Omerta’ starring Rajkummar Rao, didn’t have collections to boast of.

After opening around only Rs 50 lakhs on Friday, the film only marginally grew, by Rs 25 lakhs each on Saturday and Sunday, thus collecting only Rs 2.25 crores in the span of three days, according to Box Office India.

Rajkummar and Hansal Mehta, who both won National Awards for ‘Shahid’, have not had the best continuation to their partnership with their subsequent ventures, ‘Citylights’, ‘Aligarh’ and now ‘Omerta,’ on the box office front.

It seems unlikely that the terrorist drama could spring a comeback, while it’d be interesting to see how ‘102 Not Out’ fares during the weekdays.

If the venture manages to pass the Monday test, which has become extremely crucial for films nowadays, makers would surely rake in profits and it would then be ‘Badumbaaa’ time for the team.
