Here's how '102 Not Out', 'Omerta' fared over the weekend
The first weekend of May was a mixed one for Bollywood. While Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor's '102 Not Out' went from strength to strength, Rajkummar Rao starrer 'Omerta' struggled to put up decent numbers. And once again, it was Hollywood's 'Avengers: Infinity War' that dominated the box office. Here's more.
'102 Not Out' started on a positive note on Friday, with Rs. 3.52 crore coming in. It then witnessed a fantastic growth over the weekend and raked in Rs. 5.53 crore and Rs. 7.60 crore on Saturday and Sunday respectively. Thus, the Umesh Shukla directorial currently stands at a total of Rs. 16.65 crore.

Hansal Mehta's latest offering lacked steam from day one itself. Panned by most of the critics, 'Omerta' had a disastrous start of Rs. 54 lakh. It picked up slightly on day two but the growth was not enough to change the film's fortune. 'Omerta' has managed to collect close to Rs. 3 crore in its first three days.
'Avengers: Infinity War' is showing no signs of slowing down at the Indian box office. Marvel's film collected an impressive Rs. 30.74 crore in its second weekend, which is almost double the combined total of '102 Not Out' and 'Omerta'. With Rs. 187.38 crore in its kitty so far, 'Avengers: Infinity War' is just days away from entering the elite Rs. 200 crore club.
