Patiala House appreciated, but not drawing numbers!

Wednesday, 16 February , 2011, 10:26

Box office reports
Note: Ratings are based on the box office collections and the cost of the film
Patiala House
Cast: Akshay Kumar, Rishi Kapoor, Dimple Kapadia
Director: Nikhil Advani
  Akshay Kumar's performance, dramatic moments and penultimate portions
Screenplay is erratic
BO verdict: : Despite appreciation, the numbers are missing. Ideally, the film should have collected at least Rs. 20 cr nett in its opening weekend, but the film has collected approx. Rs. 15.25 cr nett in its first three days. The film collected approx. Rs. 4.10 cr on Friday, showed a 20%-25% jump on Saturday by collecting Rs. 5.05 cr, but didn't show a massive jump on Sunday [Rs. 6.10 cr]. Below expectations. This is amongst Akshay's lowest openers

Yeh Saali Zindagi
Cast: Irrfan Khan, Chitrangda Singh, Arunoday Singh, Aditi Rao Hydari
Director: Sudhir Mishra
  A taut screenplay that ensures monotony doesn't set in. Plus, super performances from the entire cast. Also, Sudhir Mishra's handling of the subject material
Inconsistent pacing and a few unwanted sequences that add to the length
BO verdict: : Remained rock-steady at urban centres in its second weekend, despite a big opposition in the form of 'Patiala House'. Theatrical business [above average]

Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji
Cast: Ajay Devgn, Emraan Hashmi, Omi Vaidya
Director: Madhur Bhandarkar
  Camaraderie between Ajay, Emraan and Omi and the unpredictable storyline, post intermission
Writing could be tighter, better finale and excessive length
BO verdict: : Theatrical business [average]. Overall profitable due to low costs
