Till earlier this week, it had seemed that RACE and WELCOME were the only two films which were under threat of their opening week record (35 crores) to be broken by the release of SINGH IS KINNG. However, even though this Anees Bazmee directed film was hot and a sure shot success in the making, it was a wait and watch situation before coming to conclusion around OM SHANTI OM record of 40 crores being broken.
However, the wait is over now and it is now going to be just a matter of days before SINGH IS KINNG would be crowned as the biggest ever Bollywood openers of all times. All set to surpass the 40 crores and do even better, the film has been minting money by crores with every passing show.
As per sources, collections at the end of first day read a stupendous 8 crores which is the biggest ever for any film released in India. Going by the trend as witnessed for the opening weekends of successful films, 3 day collections should be nothing less than 26 crores. All of this means that getting 15 crores plus in the remaining 4 days of the week is going to be a matter of formality, hence ensuring that 40 crores first week record is broken by a wide margin.
A time-pass affair, the film may not be an exceptional piece of cinema but for those looking at some breezy entertainment, SINGH IS KINNG packs in quite some fun for those 2 hours. With audience as well as critics response ranging from OK to decent to good, SINGH IS KINNG is bound to go down as the biggest success ever till date for every name associated with it.
