There are some films for which there are attempts to pull them down even before their theatrical release. Dhan Dhana Dhan Goal, which arrived in November last year, was one such film for which there wasn't much positive written about throughout it's making or promotion leading to it's release.
However, the film did find good audience for itself and turned out to be a decent earner for UTV. Directed by Vivek Agnihotri, the film is now entering its 8th week and in the process would be completing a 50 day run tomorrow.
In its 50 day run, the film has made close to 17 crores just from India box office which is over and above 16 crores that UTV had made on the table through brand endorsements even before the film hit the marquee.
The film also succeeded in ending John Abraham's unfortunate run in 2007 that had seen two of his major films, SALAAM-E-ISHQ and No Smoking flopping at the box office.
