Looks like comedy is the success mantra of Bollywood right now,
while Ready, a romantic comedy, ruled the Box Office for
three consecutive weeks, last weekend it was Double
Dhamaal, which led to a huge success. Ironically, both the
films, Ready and Double Dhamaal, were criticized
by a majority of critics. However, looks like the movie goers are
actually enjoying the nonsense cinema, which aims at entertaining
the audience only. Director Indra Kumar"s film Double
Dhamaal opened to good numbers in the first weekend.
The film opened on Friday with a collection of Rs 7.65 crore.
The figure shot on Saturday to Rs. 8.11 crore, and on Sunday it
grossed Rs 9.91 crore. The total first-weekend collection of the
film totals to Rs. 25.67 crores. This is a great number achieved by
Double Dhamaal, which doesn't have a crowd pulling star
attached to its name, Sanjay Dutt is an absolute exception.
Double Dhamaal is expected to retain its hold during
the weekdays, however unlike Ready the film might see a
slump from Friday onwards, as two of the biggies, Delhi
Belly and Bbuddah Hoga Terra Baap, will hit the
theaters this coming weekend (1st July, 2011).
