Raazi has emerged as a triumphant success in two weeks flat. The film had a fabulous first week and there were no signs of slowing down right through the second week either. Standing at Rs. 91.63 crore currently, the film has kept the pace up and though it may face completion from Parmanu – The Story of Pokhran this week, the job is more than just done. It is just a matter of time the Alia Bhatt starrer enters the Rs. 100 Crore Club and chances are bright that this would well happen in the third weekend itself.
What is further remarkable about the super success of the Meghna Gulzar directed film is that it has managed to brush aside competition from Hollywood biggie Deadpool 2 and that too in a major way. Moreover, audiences had other choices available too from holdover releases Avengers: Infinity War and 102 Not Out. Still, it was Raazi that stayed on the top and that reflects in the film’s collections.
As for 102 Not Out, it has now touched the Rs. 48.09 crore mark in three weeks. The film still has steam to run for one more week and that would ensure entry into the Rs. 50 Crore Club. Umesh Shukla has delivered a Hit with Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor and now it has to be seen what the director picks next.
