Not only did the action-entertainer emerge the biggest non-holiday opener ever in Bollywood history, but also managed to gross a whopping 57.8 crore within the first 4 days.

Confirms acclaimed critic and trade analyst, 'ROWDY RATHORE Fri 15.1 cr, Sat 14.7 cr, Sun 18.5 cr, Mon 9.5 cr +. Total: 57.8 cr + nett. Stupendous!'

Says a Mumbai-based distributor, ''A lot of things have worked for the film, like the timing, the set up, Prabhu Dheva's direction and the entire masala that has been spread evenly over the film. The film has got the biggest possible opening for the year after AGNEEPATH, if you count just three day weekend collection. And mind you AGNEEPATH released on a national holiday. The film is going strong on at multiplexes or at single screens.''

Adds a Delhi-based distributor, ''The film has entered the league of DABANGG and 3 IDIOTS. It is a sure shot entry into the Rs. 100 crore club and is already declared to be a blockbuster.''
