"Sholay 3D" and "Mr Joe B Carvalho", the first releases of 2014, opened to dull responses in the country.
Though released in a much less number of screens, the 3D version of "Sholay" managed to fare better than "Mr Joe B Carvalho".

"Sholay", starring Dharmendra and Amitabh Bachchan, was re-released in 3D on 3 January but the classic did not open with a bang as expected on the opening day. The film raked in ₹1.50 crore on Friday and ₹2.25 crore on Saturday from the Indian markets.
"#Sholay3D Fri 1.50 cr, Sat 2.25 cr. Total: ₹ 3.75 cr nett. India biz only," trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted.
The action drama scored well in Delhi, UP, Bihar and Mumbai circuits. The business of the film is expected to go up slightly on Sunday due to the holiday. The opening weekend total of the film should rest between ₹6 to ₹7 crore in India.
The 3D version is produced by Sascha Sippy, who is the grandson of the original's producer GP Sippy. The 3D version was made on a budget of ₹20 crore.
Meanwhile, the detective comedy "Mr Joe B Carvalho" had opened to a dull response and has shown no improvement in its second day as well.
On Friday, the film minted ₹65 lakh, and on Saturday, it dropped down to ₹60 lakh.
"#MrJoeBhiCarvalho Fri 65 lacs, Sat 60 lacs. Total: ₹ 1.35 cr nett. India biz only," Adarsh tweeted.
The comedy film, which features Soha Ali Khan, Arshad Warsi and Jaaved Jaffrey, opened to mixed reviews from critics. The film has failed to entertain both the critics and the audience.
Directed by Samir Tewari, the film is produced by Bhola Ram Malviya and Shital Malviya.
