As expected, Kaminey opened to an excellent response, garnering one of the best openings in recent times. Vishal Bhardwaj + Shahid Kapoor + 'Dhan Te Nan' have done the trick. The film is being liked immensely by the youth. The first day collections, excluding Mumbai and Pune, should be huge. Independence Day being a holiday, the business was superb again.
On the other hand, Life Partner had a 25% to 30% start across various screens. The film was affected due to the Kaminey wave, but the business picked up from Saturday onwards. Sunsay. shows showed a jump at several screens and the evening and night shows were even better. The film is being liked by family audiences.
