It is definitely going to be a setback for the detractors of director Sajid Khan, who had called him loud mouth when he had predicted a sixty crore opening for his upcoming HOUSEFULL. And going by last year's box office record of lead actor Akshay Kumar, whose films like CHANDNI CHOWK TO CHINA, 8x10 TASVEER, KAMBAKKHT ISHQ and BLUE had an ordinary show (after a good weekend) at the ticket window, their reservations about the humungous box-office opening week of HOUSFULL seemed quite right.

However, it appears that director Sajid Khan is having the last laugh and finally Bollywood will see its second big success of the year after Karan Johar's MY NAME IS KHAN. True that there have been partially successful or above average films in the form of ISHQIYA, ATITHI TUM KAB JOAGE? and LOVE SEX AUR DHOKHA but none that could be labeled a hit.

Coming to our headlines, these are not mere prophecies out of thin air, but reliable sections of the trade have predicted a bumper opening for the Akskay Kumar, Ritesh Deshmukh, Arjun Rampal, Deepika Padukone, Lara Dutta and Boman Irani starrer. And, why not? The music has caught on in a big way, and the sustained and very balanced promotion too has helped in creating a good hype around the film.

Moreover, it will be holiday/vacation season and the dreaded (for Bollywood!) IPL tournament too will be over by that time. So, looks like both the Sajids (director Sajid Khan and producer Sajid Nadiadwala) can relax and wait for the film to do the rest!

HOUEFULL opens worldwide on 30th April.
