It is celebration times for two small films - SHAURYA and KHUDA KAY LIYE. The films have completed 50 days at the box office today and are still running on a few prints across the country.
Made on shoestring budget, both SHAURYA and KHUDA KAY LIYE have topped 2 crores each in collections from across the country and can expect further revenue being generated from satellite and home video entertainment.
When released 7 weeks back, neither SHAURYA nor KHUDA KAY LIYE took a humongous opening. It was decent at maximum though good reviews and positive word of mouth meant that the films stayed with the audience over a period of time. The results were there to be seen as in spite of films like U ME AUR HUM and KRAZZY 4 releasing soon after and RACE continuing to be strong as ever, SHAURYA and KHUDA KAY LIYE continued to work well for their target audience.
As both the films now look at curtains falling for them after a successful run, SHAURYA has already seen a DVD release while KHUDA KAY LIYE would be arriving on DVDs soon as well.
