Just like director Priyadarshan's last project, BHAGAM BHAG, his latest release, DHOL KISKA BAJEGA...?, got bad to so-so reviews, and the trade was quick to dismiss it as a probable failure. A section of the trade also wrote (about DHOL) that Priyadarshan was becoming mechanical and the gags predictable.
However, like in the case of BHAGAM BHAG, which went on to collect 42 crores, DHOL too has embarked on a successful run, netting more than 15 crores in just two weeks, and that too in a lean month. What must be kept in mind is that DHOL has a budget of only 8 crores and the movie is already an earner for most of its distributors.
Well, the obvious answer to the question (also the full title of DHOL!) DHOL KISKA BAJEGA...?, has to be, Priyadarshan!
