It was always expected that Lootera would primarily find audience in premium multiplexes of the country. Given the glowing pre-release reviews and insiders testimonials, the film had seemed to set for an opening around the 50% mark. While footfalls were a tad lesser than that to begin with, there was good escalation over the weekend owing to positive word of mouth. This resulted in the first week collections of around 19 crores which gives a film a good enough ground to build a respectable total from here.
While this Vikramaditya Motwane directed film was never quite slated to hit the roof, a lot would now depend on the weekday collections for the film to see a higher box office billing. More than just the commercials involved, it is the kind of credibility that everyone associated with it has managed to build with Lootera since it is a classy product. At the end »

Vivek said Hrithik has "an aura of a legend". "He is very humble. There is a legendary quality in his humility," added the "Company" actor.
The 36-year-old is confident that with "Krrish 3", Hrithik "will surpass all his previous achievements".
Vivek's past few films, including "Kismet Love Paisa Dilli" and "Zila Ghaziabad", didn't elicit the desired response. No wonder the actor is overwhelmed with an opportunity to work in the sci-fi superhero extravaganza.

From the list it is likely to be the first two films which will compete for a bigger piece of the box-office pie. However, last Friday's Kai Po Che! will still be a formidable opponent for the three new releaseThe two releases of last week, namely Utv Motion Picture's Kai Po Che! and Sanjay Dutt's Zila Ghaziabad, behaved quite predictably. While »
Every now and then, we see a movie that is a surprising hit. Kai Po Che is certainly our candidate for the biggest surprise hit of the year. The movie has raked a whopping 16 crores in the weekend following its release! Two movies released last weekend at the box office- Abhishek Kapoor's Kai Po Che and Vinod Bachchan's Zila Ghaziabad. While Kai Po Che is an amazing hit, Zila Ghaziabad has not managed to bring in that much collection for the producers. Kai Po Che collected Rs 3.7 crores on Friday, Rs 5.5 crores on Saturday and 6.9 crores on Sunday. This is actually quite high for any movie, but it is spectacularly good for this weekend, fo »
Zila Ghaziabad has released and as expected, it is Arshad Warsi who has secured good accolades for himself. As a villain, he has justified his presence and for the audience too, it is a welcome relief to see him doing something different than making them laugh. As he finds good acknowledgment coming his way for appearing as a modern day 'Gabbar Singh' (something that the makers were all this while trying to make audience believe), Arshad gets talking about the film.
