Looking back at the month of February, a total of about 16 flicks got to release in the theaters. The only silver lining in this otherwise forgettable month was the release of Akshay Kumar’s ‘Jolly LLB 2’ which got the cash registers ringing but the other biggie ‘Rangoon’ bit the dust and eventually found no takers at the ticket windows. Below is the report card of some of the highest grossing Bollywood movies released in February month and their respective performances at the box-office.

  1. Jolly LLB 2 (10 February) Avg. Rating – 3.3/5

     

    Akshay Kumar’s ‘Jolly LLB 2’ was the third biggie of the year to release after ‘Raees’ and ‘Kaabil’. As expected it didn’t disappoint the audiences. The sequel to the much successful ‘Jolly LLB’, ‘Jolly LLB 2’ was a winner from day 1 and took a couple of weeks to make it to the 100-Cr club. In terms of box-office collections, when last reports came in the courtroom drama had collected over 110 Cr from its domestic markets.

  2. The Ghazi Attack (17 February) Avg. Rating – 3.2/5

     

    The Rana Daggubati, Kay Kay Menon, and Taapsee Pannu starrer, ‘The Ghazi Attack’ was released in Hindi, Telugu and Tamil languages simultaneously and did a decent business of 30 Cr, overall. The film which was based on the 1971 Indo-Pak navy submarine attacks managed to garner critical ratings and reviews. The film will end up as a plus for its makers.

  3. Rangoon (24 February) Avg. Rating – 3.1/5

     

    Vishal Bhardwaj’s war drama ‘Rangoon’ was touted as one of the biggies of the year which turned out to be a damp squib at the ticket windows. Made on a budget of nearly 70 crores and despite boasting a star cast like Shahid Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan and Kangana Ranaut, the flick has managed to gross just about 20 crore so far and has received a ‘thumbs down’ from the audiences.

  4. Kung Fu Yoga (3 February) Avg. Rating – 2.5/5

     

    This Indo-China production action flick was directed by Stanley Tong which saw actor Jackie Chan teaming up with Bollywood actors Sonu Sood, Disha Patani and Amyra Dastur. 'Kung Fu Yoga' opened to a poor response at the box-office despite high octane action sequences and promotions from its star cast. The first release of the month of February unfortunately, was given a cold shoulder by the audiences.

  5. Hind Ka Napak Ko Jawab: MSG Lion Heart 2 (10 February) Avg. Rating – 2.7/5

     

    Dr. Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Insan’s film based on India’s surgical attacks on Pakistan was unintentionally funny and hilarious. According to sources, the film opened to massive crowds up north where Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Insan has a massive fan following. When last reports came in, the action flick had already grossed a domestic total of over 140 Cr.

  6. Running Shaadi (17 February) Avg. Rating – 2.5/5

    The long in the making Amit Roy’s ‘Running Shaadi’ went for a change of name at the last moment by its makers by deleting ‘.com’ from its title. The Amit Sadh and Taapsee Pannu starrer failed to generate a good initial upon its release and managed to collect close to just a crore. Though the subject had potential when it was launched but the delay in release made it look outdated.

  8. Irada (17 February) Avg. Rating – 2.3/5

     

    Despite dealing with a subject based on true incidents and having seasoned actors like Arshad Warsi, Sharad Kelkar and Naseeruddin Shah, ‘Irada’ was a non-starter at the ticket counters from day 1. Due to lack of promotions and shoddy direction the thriller flick failed to generate any interest among the viewers. With earning less than a crore in the final analysis, the film will end up as a losing proposition.

  9. Mona Darling (24 February) Avg. Rating – 2.0/5

     

    Anshuman Jha, who shot to fame with Dibakar Banerjee’s ‘Love Sex Aur Dhokha’ a few years ago turned producer with this suspense thriller. ‘Mona Darling’ dealt with a contemporary subject like social media where people get hooked unknowingly and later are trapped and ditched. Though the small budget flick had a shift in release date and was sold at a moderate price, it will end up as a washout for its makers in the final analysis.
