Director Homi Adajania's latest Hindi movie
Cocktail, which is one of the most-awaited movies of 2012,
has embarked on a terrific start at the Box Office in India. As per
early trends, Saif Ali Khan and Deepika
Padukone starrer movie is expected to collect Rs 15 to 18
crores at the collection centres.
Cocktail has received a very good response at
multiplexes in metros. The movie has registered 90% to 100%
occupancy at morning and noon shows in multiplexes across the
country. It has also got good start at singles screens, but its
business is not up to the level of multiplexes.
Cocktail is a romantic thriller and it has got positive
reviews from film critics across the country. The makers of the
film have had extensive promotion for it. The promos and songs of
the film had created lot of curiosity among the audience especially
the youth. Now, the film is expected to set new record at the Box
However, Hindi movie Bol Bachchan and Telugu film
Eega, which have done fare business last week, are running
with a good collection across the country. In South India, Tamil
film Billa 2, which is one of the most-anticipated movies,
has hit the screens today. Many were thinking that
Cocktail might face tough competition for these films. But
it has proved their opinions wrong.
