The entry of Salman Khan's production house SKBH Productions happened with this sweet little film which was released along with the much hyped Mahesh Bhatt's 'Murder 2'. General opinion was that 'Murder 2' will be the audience choice and 'Chillar Party' will struggle.
But good for Bollywood and cine lovers... While 'Murder ' was singing its success song, families in metros were also dancing to the 'Chiller Party' tune. The movie was a perfect family outing thanks to Nitish Tiwari and Vikas Bahl who made their debut with this as directors and did a commendable job.

You can either love Himesh Re3hammiya or hate him but you cannot ignore him. The singer with his tiny 3 crore budget flick made Shahrukh Khan and its people at Red Chillies the producers of over 100 crore 'Ra.One' wonder and scratch their heads.
This romantic comedy by debutant Swapna Waghmare starred Himesh Reshammiya, Sonal Sehgal and Purbi Joshi took an obvious slow start due to the presence of the much awaited and highly publicized SRK starrer 'Ra.One'. 'Damadamm' got a 50 lakh opening but later as days passed by 'Ra.One' collections started declining and 'Damadamm' made its place at the ticket counter.
The movie ended up at Rs. 4 crore net!! This is what we call a pleasant surprise...
