PATIALA HOUSE has done something which not many could see coming from a long distance - It has fetched its makers some of the best reviews ever of their career. With majority of notable critics handing over good to very good reviews to this week's release, the game has just begun for PATIALA HOUSE which did depend upon feedback which is generated through word of mouth.

Comments a senior crew member of PATIALA HOUSE, "We all did well on the film but were still anxious to know the kind of reviews that PATIALA HOUSE would get. Since the film's promotion was controlled and the team had instead decided to let the word of mouth do all the talking, it was imperative that reviews were good. This has now happened with almost all reviews being totally positive."

This has also meant that years after NAMASTEY LONDON, Akshay Kumar has seen unanimous appreciation coming for his act in PATIALA HOUSE. His subtle portrayal of 'Gattu' has been picked by critics as well as audience alike which has resulted in him gaining immense appreciation even from his detractors. For Nikhil Advani too, it has come as a shot in the arm after CHANDNI CHOWK TO CHINA.

Says a close associate, "It was a matter of time before Akshay showed to the world all over again that he was open to roles which pushed him beyond a comic guy. He has showed his somber side in films like EK RISHTA, JAANWAR and DHADKAN earlier on as well. Now that he has gone a step ahead in PATIALA HOUSE, it is being touted as a new facet of his acting capabilities."

Resultantly, after a not-so-encouraging start on Friday, the collections have (expectedly) started showing escalation now.

Positive reviews coupled with word of mouth has meant that this family film has enjoyed a breather for itself by means of enhanced collections over the weekend and a positive stay at the box office on weekdays as well.
