The opening of Ashish R. Mohan's Akshay-Asin starrer, KHILADI 786, was expected to be bumper to good (barring high end multiplexes and South). The film, when it actually released, embarked on a good to bumper start, but only at the single screens of UP, Rajasthan, Bihar and parts of Gujarat. The multiplexes were much lower (30-55 percent), the higher collections coming from non-metro plexes.


Given that the word-of-mouth for the film is mixed and some of the discerning critics are expectedly not so kind, the metro and 'A' center multiplexes may not improve much. Having said that, KHILADI 786 did show a perceptible growth in the latter shows and is likely to net 10-11 crore on its opening day, with the weekend expected to be in the range of 30-35 crore.

Meanwhile last Friday's Reema Kagti directed Aamir, Rani, Kareena and Nawazuddin starrer, TALAASH - THE ANSWER LIES WITHIN, managed a good weekend of 44-45 crore, but flattered to deceive, as thereafter the weekdays saw the collections falling (alarmingly Tuesday onwards).

During the first week TALAASH has netted in the range of 64-65 crore (to be validated), though the battle is still not over for the film, and to be declared a clean hit, and for getting to the now customary 100 crore mark, TALAASH has to show strong legs in the second weekend, as well as the week!
