Kumar and Paresh Rawal's latest outing OMG
God has rocked the viewers in the first week. The Umesh Shukla
directed movie has collected Rs 36.94 crores nett at the Indian Box
Office in seven days. Its opening week business is at par with
Kareena Kapoor's much-hyped recent release Heroine, which
had raked in Rs 37 crores nett in the first week of its release.
OMG Oh My God opened to an average response with its
collection reaching Rs 4.25 crores nett at the desi Box Office on
its first day. The movie received rave reviews and a positive word
of mouth did a magic for the film on the next day. It collected Rs
6.5 crores on Saturday and Rs 7.9 crores on Sunday.
The business of OMG Oh My God fell down on Monday, but
it was a notch better than its performance on Friday. Due to Gandhi
Jayanthi, its collection was further doubled up on Tuesday. Its
business once again saw a dip on Wednesday and Thursday. The
breakup of its first week collection is Rs 4.25 cr on Fri, Rs 6.5
cr on Sat, Rs 7.9 cr on Sun, Rs 4.6 cr on Mon, Rs 7.37 cr on Tue,
Rs 3.32 cr on Wed and Rs 3 crores on Thu.
However, OMG Oh My God has not been able to beat the
collection record of Akshay Kumar's recent releases like
Housefull 2 and Rowdy Rathore. But its business
is far better than his another recent film Joker, which
had collected Rs 21 crores in the first week. Trade analysts feel
that like Barfi, this movie will also keep the bells
ringing at the collection centres in the next week.
