Undoubtedly this Friday's awaited release, Dharma Productions' Ayan Mukerji directed, YEH JAWAANI HAI DEEWANI, has indeed reached its peak in terms of hype and anticipation. The audience, especially the youth, are awaiting the film eagerly and trade is abuzz with excitement as the day gets nearer and nearer.
RACE 2 and YEH JAWAANI HAI DEEWANI
This has indeed been a very dull, in fact a bad first five months of the year for Bollywood with just a couple of hits (JOLLY L.L.B. and KAI PO CHE!) and only one blockbuster (AASHIQUI 2), but the fifth month is expected to close with the Ranbir Kapoor-Deepika Padukone starrer, YEH JAWAANI HAI DEEWANI, bringing cheers all round by doing humongous business.
Trade has predicted that YEH JAWAANI HAI DEEWANI is being touted as the highest grossing film of the first half of the year overtaking Tips' RACE 2 which till now enjoyed pole position, having netted 95 crore, just from the Indian theatrical run.
However for that not only YEH JAWAANI HAI DEEWANI will have to take a superb opening like RACE 2 (which it surely will!) but it will also have to sustain well to overtake RACE 2 which unfortunately fell substantially in its second week like most action flicks!
Let's hope that Bollywood which is facing a crisis of sorts comes out of it with YEH JAWAANI HAI DEEWANI going on to be the second blockbuster of the year after AASHIQUI 2 and the first 100 crore plus netter of the year.
