Grand Masti has been slammed by the many film critics, but their remarks did not deter the adult comedy film from working wonders at the Indian Box Office in the first week. In seven days, the Vivek Oberoi, Aftab Shivadasani and Riteish Deshmukh starrer has done much better business than what critically-acclaimed film Satyagraha could not do in the domestic market in three weeks.
With its promos that soared up viewers' expectations to sky high, Grand Masti opened to a fantastic start in the domestic market on Friday. The movie registered an average of 65% to 75% occupancy on its opening day and it showed very good growth on Saturday and Sunday too. It collected Rs 40.18 crores nett at the Indian Box Office in the first weekend. Its breakup is Rs 12.51 cr on Fri, Rs 13.21 cr on Sat and Rs 14.46 cr on Sun.
As usual Grand Masti witnessed dip in its business on Monday, but its collection was on par with the business of many biggies. It held well on the following days. The movie raked in Rs 27.05 crores nett at the Indian Box Office on the weekdays, taking its seven-day domestic total to Rs 67.05 crores nett. Its breakup is Rs 7.75 cr on Mon, Rs 7.35 cr on Tue, Rs 6.25 cr on Wed and Rs 5.70 cr on Thu.
Two much-hyped movies like Phata Poster Nikla Hero and The Lunchbox have hit the screens today. Since they belong to different genre, they will not affect the collection of Grand Masti in the second week. The adult comedy film will surely set a new record by surpassing Rs 100 crore mark in the domestic market.
