WANTED has taken a huge opening all over with steady collections over the weekend leading to all time best collections for a Monday. With Eid festivities setting in, Salman Khan fans and followers have thronged theaters in hundreds and ensured that WANTED turns out to be at least a HIT at the box office.
While Salman frenzy is quite understandable considering the fact that he has returned as a solo lead in a biggie after ages, the debate going around the town is - Is WANTED Salman Khan's career best performance ever?
There are bound to be varied point of views here. After all ANDAZ APNA APNA, HUM AAPKE HAIN KAUN, MAINE PYAAR KIYA and KARAN ARJUN have been masterpieces in Salman's 20 years long career. Still, what makes WANTED special is the fact that on this side of the century, Salman has gone all out in at least 'being interested' in the film. At least he is not bored. At least he is not taking his stardom for granted. At least he is not being careless about his looks. At least he is not letting his own self come in the way of director's vision.
WANTED has turned out to be one of those films where a hero never ever got a scratch on his body even with 50 odd goons attacking him in one go, bullets flying all over, international mafia after him and multiple gangs planning his elimination. And still, audiences are quite happy rooting for him.
As agreed by industry followers, 'WANTED has indeed turned out to be a one man show'. And even though the debate may continue if this man has given his career best performance in WANTED, the fact remains that he is back in a big way, and how!
