Let us start this week's column by stating the obvious! This year's Diwali release, the Sooraj Barjatya directed Salman-Sonam starrer, PREM RATAN DHAN PAYO, is all set to create History at the box-office. The first day may see the biggest single day figure of 40 crore plus, which would mean that the same record (established last Diwali) by the Shah Rukh Khan starrer, HAPPY NEW YEAR, stands to fall. In fact it would not be a surprise at all if PREM RATAN DHAN PAYO ends up netting over 125 crore, by the end of the first extended weekend, as PRDP releases on Thursday. PREM RATAN DHAN PAYO will also witness a magical run in the overseas.
The dull pre-Diwali and the lack of face value took a toll on all the releases of last week, CHARLIE KAY CHAKKAR MEIN, RANBANKA, YAARA SILLY SILLY, RUN BHUUMI and FOUR PILLARS OF BASEMENT. None of the mentioned releases could cross even the crore mark during the opening weekend, as the audience preferred the holdover releases.
