Yamla Pagla Deewana collects Rs 22.8cr in first weekend

Tuesday, 18 January , 2011, 15:23

Box office reports
Note: Ratings are based on the box office collections and the cost of the film
Yamla Pagla Deewana
Cast:Dharmendra, Sunny Deol, Bobby Deol, Kulraj Randhawa
Director: Samir Karnik
  Watching the Deols in one frame. Plus, a captivating second half
First half is sloppy. Romantic portions don't work
BO verdict: :Collected approx. Rs. 22.8 cr nett in Weekend 1 [early estimates], which is excellent in view of the fact that the Deols and also director Samir Karnik haven't had a smooth run at the box-office. The breakup:- Fri: 7.95 cr, Sat: 6.60 cr and Sun: 8.25 cr. The film has performed very well in North India [exceptional in Punjab], but is on the lower side in Mumbai city. The contribution from single screens has been enormous, while multiplexes haven't contributed much from Mumbai city and South. The dip in business on Saturday could be attributed to an interesting cricket match

Tees Maar Khan
Cast:Akshay Kumar, Akshaye Khanna, Katrina Kaif, Ali Asgar

  Thoroughly entertaining first half. Plus, 'Sheila Ki Jawani'
Loses grip in post-interval portions. Screenplay lacks punch. Jokes fall flat
