Chintamani and Aashiyana released this Friday alongside Supernani in Hindi. Sangeeta Balchandran directed Chintamani gave a tight competition to the other Marathi release Aashiyana which fared badly on the first day of its release. Chintamani having Amruta Subhash and Bharat Jadhav in the main lead attracted a good number of audience to the theaters and received good reviews. The general review about the film was that it was entertaining and worth the money. Based on the lives of the middle class people , the film mingled the elements of family relations and thriller. It’s interesting concept has surely made an impact and left the audience satisfied.
Chintamani recorded occupancy of about 45 % in the theatres that is higher as compared to that of Aashiyana that ended up with less than 30 %. Chintamani collected ********* on Friday and on the weekend it is expected to end up with an average ***** . While Aashiyana made a total collection of ******* on Friday , it received a lukewarm response and remained rather unnoticed owing to its low publicity. It is expected to do negligible business on the weekend. The film is already written off. While Chintamani is expected to catch owing to there being no major release in Hindi in competition.
