Midweek B.O.: ‘YPD’ collects Rs 22.8 cr in Weekend 1, excellent


Yamla Pagla Deewana
Dharmendra, Sunny Deol, Bobby Deol, Kulraj Randhawa, Anupam Kher, Johny Lever, Nafisa Ali, Sucheta Khanna, Amit Mistry, Mukul Dev, Himanshu Malik, Puneet Issar, Emma Brown Garrett, Ajay Devgn [voiceover]Watching the Deols in one frame. Plus, a captivating second halfFirst half is sloppy. Romantic portions don't workCollected 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

No One Killed Jessica
Rani Mukerji, Vidya Balan, Neil Bhoopalam, Mohammed Zeeshan Ayub, Myra, Rajesh Sharma, Satyadeep Misra, Shireesh SharmaA poignant story of two women's resolve for justice narrated with utmost sensitivity by director Rajkumar GuptaCould've been trimmed for a stronger impactMaintained very well despite a strong opposition ['Yamla Pagla Deewana']. Collected approx. Rs. 4.22 cr nett in its second weekend. The breakup:- Fri: 1.25 cr, Sat: 1.42 cr and Sun: 1.55 cr. Total so far: approx. Rs. 24.72 cr nett. Will ensure healthy profits to UTV. Hit

Band Baaja Baaraat
Anushka Sharma, Ranveer Singh, Neeraj Sood, Manmeet Singh Sawhney, Manish ChaudhariFresh, youthful and extremely entertaining. Plus, Anushka and Ranveer's first-rate performancesSlips in the post-interval portionsWill ensure good profits to Yash Raj from theatrical and non-theatrical avenues. Hit

Tees Maar Khan
Akshay Kumar, Akshaye Khanna, Katrina Kaif, Ali Asgar, Raghu, Rajiv, Aarya Babbar, Murli Sharma, Aman Verma, Apara Mehta, Sudhir Pandey, Sachin Khedekar, Vijay Patkar, Salman Khan [sp. app.], Anil Kapoor [sp. app.]Thoroughly entertaining first half. Plus, 'Sheila Ki Jawani'Loses grip in post-interval portions. Screenplay lacks punch. Jokes fall flatBelow average [theatrical business]. Eventually, UTV may just about recover its investment mainly due to the contribution from Satellite Rights

Turning 30!!!
Gul Panag, Purab Kohli, Sid Makkar, Tillotama Shome, Jeneva Talwar, Satyadeep Misra, Ira Dubey, Anita Kanwar, Rahul Singh, Sameer Malhotra, Bikramjeet KanwarpalInteresting conceptFlawed screenplayWas slightly better at select multiplexes, but overall dull

(Ratings are based on the box office collections and the cost of the film)
