Box Office - 'Race 2' marches towards 100 crores

Predictions were pretty much to the T for 'Race 2' as the film opened in 60%-70% range, hence resulting in some good numbers coming in. While it was highlighted that no new records would be created, for Saif Ali Khan this film was a golden opportunity to allow him an entry into the 100 crore club. As things stand today, this is pretty much on the anvil as the opening numbers have turned out to be quite pleasing.

Standing at around 53 crores in just the opening weekend, the film is just a little lower than what 'Cocktail' had managed in its entire week (55 crores). For John Abraham too, the film is all set to record the highest first week collection ever since his last biggie was 'Housefull 2' that had managed 63 crores in it's opening week.

As for Abbas-Mustan, the film's superb opening has pretty much wiped the disappointment that had come exactly a year back in the form of 'Players'. They have proved their stranglehold yet again over the medium of making slick movies and can be expected to make more films belonging to this genre.

While this huge opening should account for a good distance being covered towards the 100 crore milestone for the film, it has to be mentioned that as a final product, 'Race 2' did leave a little more to be desired at the least, if not a lot.

'Race' was a much superior product in terms of the script and overall narrative and how one wishes that if only 'Race 2' would have maintained similar product quality, it could have covered a much larger distance in the final tally.

Unfortunately for 'Akaash Vani' though there was not even a little distance covered as the film sunk without a trace. As highlighted in this column last week, everything depended on the word of mouth for the film's eventual fortunes.

However even for that the bare minimum requirement was for the film to be seen by a select few at the least, something that had made 'Pyaar Ka Punchnama' a success in a long run. However none of that happened as the opening was dismal with negligible collections coming in.

The film was crushed by 'Race 2' onslaught and got totally sidelined despite boasting of some good moments. In fact its reviews too were decent to good with Nushrat Bharucha in particular fetching some good response for her performance.

However that won't quite count in the eventual outcome, at least as far as the theatrical run is concerned, since there is hardly any space for the film to find itself on stable grounds, courtesy onslaught of newer releases starting next week.

As for the third release of the week, 'Main Krishna Hoon', it went completely unnoticed as it wasn't even reviewed by critics, leave aside being seen by the audience.
