However, offbeat a film maybe, it’s gonna take a leap of bigger opening when they boast of league of superstars. So it was with Shah Rukh Khan’s critically acclaimed Swades that is still regarded as critic’s best choice. Obviously, Aamir Khan’s Dhobi Ghat isn’t an exception as it wins both audiences’ interests and box office collections as well. Released at very limited screens (approximately 325 screens according to Bollywood trade reports), the film swept with a good opening at the box office spinning a collection of Rs.10.05 crores in the opening weekend. The reception has been fantastic across the urban areas, especially in metropolitan cities.
But previous week’s release Yamla Pagla Deewana has managed to retain a good position in box office by incurring 9 crores during its second week. The resplendent presence of Deol family has turned to be one of the biggest assets of this movie.
Rani Mukherjee-Vidya Balan starrer No One Killed Jessica also proved to be a hit as producers have taken a cake walk with good profits.
