Anjaana Anjaani highlighting Ranbir Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra, has opened decently well at the box office. Three weeks after the release of Salman Khan’s Dabangg, movie buffs thronged the theaters to watch this major love story directed by Siddharth Anand.
Multiplexes in urban centers, like Mumbai, Delhi and Kolkata saw 75 percent to 100 percent occupancy. However, the southern centers like Bangalore, Hyderabad and Chennai, saw less enthusiastic response because of Rajinikanth’s latest film Endhiran The Robot which is pulling most of the crowd down South.
The reports are mixed. While some felt it was a finely crafted romantic movie, others thrashed it as a senseless mushy drama. But it should emerge a winner on the strength of its superb opening and youth patronization.
The opening and noon shows were in the range of 80% to 90%. At some stations, they were 100% too. Anjaana Anjaani is reported to have grossed a very good 7.25 crore net on day one.
The Robot [Hindi version] has started slowly, its opening was 30%, but the reports are very good and the film is expected to grow in the days to come. The film has opened to an exceptional response in South. Anjaana Anjaani has some tough competition coming from the 60-year-old superstar Rajinikanth.
