New Delhi: The new releases Sholay 3D and Mr Joe B Carvalho, which were expected to provide a necessary breakthrough were dominated by two-weeks old release Dhoom 3.

Sholay 3D on the opening day made just Rs 1.50 cr in India. “Sholay3D Fri Rs 1.50 cr”, tweets Taran Adarsh.

It may be possible that viewers may not be fascinated by the 3D version of the blockbuster flick but the other flick starring Arshad Warsi and Soha Ali Khan too couldn't pull the audience at its doorstep.

On the other hand, Dhoom 3 which has entered in its third week continues to cash in at the ticket counters. The flick on 15th day collected Rs 3.14 cr thereby leaving behind both the flicks.

“Dhoom 3- All Languages
3rd Friday
Hindi Rs 3.03 Cr
Tamil & Telugu Rs 0.11 Cr
Total Rs 3.14 Cr
Grand Total:- Rs 260.45 Cr”, writes Taran Adarsh.

Trade expert Taran Adarsh writes, "After the big finish last year with Dhoom 3 shattering most records, expectations were high from the newer releases. However, the two films, Sholay 3D and Mr Joe B Carvalho that kickstarted the year for Bollywood, have begun on a less than desirable note."

He states further, "Early trends indicate a slow start for the two films, although Sholay was slightly better in few circuits. However, Dhoom 3 is expected to dominate the domestic BO for the third consecutive week, as per initial trends."

"Both Sholay 3D and Mr Joe B Carvalho, will have to rely heavily on a strong word of mouth to sustain over the weekend.", ends Taran.
