11 months of 2019 have passed. This year has been good for Bollywood. However, the month of November was somewhat soft for the box office. In the 11th month, only Ayushman Khurana’s Bala performed well at the box office. Apart from this, most of the films kept crawling for good collections.
Ujra Chaman was released on November 1. Sunny Singh played the lead character in the film directed by Abhishek Pathak. The reason for Ayushman Khurana’s resemblance to Bala remained in controversy and discussion before the film’s release, but could not catch up with the audience after release. Ujra Chaman could collect a life time collection of only about 12 crores.
After a week, Bala came on 8 November. The film took place as soon as it arrived. After taking the best opening of 10.15 crores, the film has collected more than 113 crores till date and is still running in theaters. Bala is the highest collecting film of November. The film is directed by Amar Kaushik. (All box office figures are taken from Koimoi website)

This film with action and heavy dialogue took an opening of about 7 crores, and has collected more than 47 crores till now. Rakul Preet and Tara Sutaria played female lead roles in the film.
On 22 November, Pagalpanti was released by John Abraham and Ilya Dikruz, directed by Anees Bazmee. Despite strong supporting star cast like Anil Kapoor, Arshad Warsi, Pulkit Samrat, Saurabh Shukla, the film could not do anything special at the box office. Pagalpanti could deposit only around 29 crores in the first week.
Commando 3 and Hotel Mumbai were released on the last Friday of the month on 29 November. Commando 3 has taken the opening as per expectations and has collected about 18 crores in the opening weekend. At the same time, Hotel Mumbai has shared more than 4 crores. Now many big films will come in December and the box office temperature is expected to rise.
