Shahrukh Khan's Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi was expected to start with a bang, fetching one of the biggest starts of the year, but the film opened to a thoroughly mixed response. The film was good at plexes of Mumbai, Delhi, parts of U.P., Jaipur, Indore, Ahmedabad [in the range of 70%], but was best in parts of South India. However, the opening was 25% - 30% - 40% outside these centres and at places, even lower at single screens.
The reports are extremely mixed as well, what with the elder crowd patronising the film, but the young crowd as well as the masses hardly being gung-ho. The response almost the same on Saturday and Sunday. The question is will it sustain from Monday onwards, is one question everyone's asking.
