Though it would be unfair to pin point the overall quality and audience acceptance of cult romcom like JAB WE MET or one of the most loved films of last year, BAND BAAJA BAARAAT, with currently-making-waves TANU WEDS MANU, the box office collections prove that in this genre, the Madhavan and Kangna starrer is all set to be victorious by a very good margin.

With more than 11 crores coming in the first weekend, the collections here are much more than what BAND BAAJA BAARAAT (2010) and JAB WE MET (2007), two films belonging to similar genre, had netted. In fact while entire first week's collections of BAND BAAJA BAARAAT were just over 8 crores, JAB WE MET had netted 12 crores in it's first week.

On the other hand while it was always a given that TANU WEDS MANU would comfortably break the first week total of the aforementioned films, it is now crystal clear that this would be done by a huge margin, what with this Aanand L Rai directed film looking at crossing the 17 crore mark very comfortably.

Now it has to be seen if the eventual collections of TANU WEDS MANU would be higher than BAND BAAJA BAARAAT (23 crores) and JAB WE MET (30 crores) as well. With no major release for competition till 1st April, TANU WEDS MANU would be enjoying the best of the whole world for full five weeks. This means that while 'Band Baaja Baaraat' would be comfortably crossed by 'Tanu Weds Manu' in two weeks flat, there is real threat for 'Jab We Met' total to be left behind as well.

While the collections are definitely pleasing for this medium budget film, let's analyse the factors that led to such a response.

- Highest marks here go to the team which put together the promos of the film. Right from word 'go' the promos were bang on target, whether talkie or the ones centred on songs and dances.

- Secondly the look of the film which told exactly what it was all about.

- Thirdly the unique pairing of Madhavan and Kangna which was exuding the right vibes and

- Fourthly (and very importantly) the chartbuster track 'Saddi Galli'. Once all these factors came together to create the right visibility for the film, there was no looking back for 'Tanu Weds Manu'.
