In fact it appears that once again the critics went south and the audience north, as the first day itself saw HAPPY NEW YEAR beating Aamir Khan’s DHOOM 3 opening day record by 8-9 crores as it netted 40-41 crore just from the original version (Hindi), and also managing to beat the highest single day record by 5-6 crore.
The second day (Saturday) saw a fall, normal after a huge holiday opening day, by netting in the 31-32 crore range, thus netting 72-73 crore in two days from India. Additionally, the dubbed versions brought in 3-4 crores, despite a strong opposition from Tamil film KATHTHI.

The film is expected to end the weekend by netting in the 105-110 crore range (as we await Sunday collections), thus beating DHOOM 3’s 100 crore in 3-days mark, both film totals inclusive of dubbed version.
As things stand, HAPPY NEW YEAR is all said to be a big hit, how big time will tell. And we are not even talking about the overseas run yet!
