Great to fair start for TALAASH, decent haul for JTHJ & SOS

It was expected that Excel Entertainment, Aamir Khan Production and Reliance Entertainment's TALAASH - THE ANSWER LIES WITHIN would embark on an excellent to good start at the city multiplexes, given the fact that the project had the stamp of brand Aamir and it was a full-fledged release for the superstar, nearly 3-years after 3 IDIOTS.


The film did start on a great note, but only at Metro multiplexes (Mumbai, Delhi city, Pune and Bangalore), and the opening ranged from 75- 85 percent. However at the 'B' centre multiplexes the start was quite lower at around 45-50 percent. The good thing is that there was a noticeable pick up (especially in the Metros) during the latter shows.

The performance at the single screens (even at 'A' centers) was quite lower and in the range of 30-40 percent on an average. Having said that TALAASH was never expected to be a rousing affair at the single screens!


As things stand, the outcome of the 40-crore Reema Kagti directed, Aamir, Rani, Kareena and Nawaz starrer depends on how the end twist is taken. As per the feedback some have loved it, others have just not accepted it!

Meanwhile the two Diwali releases, Ajay Devgn's SON OF SARDAAR and the Shahrukh Khan starrer, JAB TAK HAI JAAN, managed a decent second week, mopping up nearly 40 crores between them, with JTHJ leading by about 1.50 crore.

Just for stats SON OF SARDAAR has netted 98.50 crore (to be validated) after the end of the second week, while JAB TAK HAI JAAN is at 115 crore (to be validated), at the same juncture.
