Box office: ‘Singh Is Bliing’ is second biggest opener of 2015.
Says trade pundit Amod Mehra, “A big advantage for ‘Singh Is Bliing’ was that it released on a national holiday (October 2), which preceded the weekend. On Saturday, the collections dropped only to rise the next day. The film now has to maintain the tempo through the weekdays to be declared a hit.”
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh is of the opinion that ‘Singh Is Bliing’ has lived up to its hype. “It had a spectacular start and seems to have struck a chord with those who relish masala movies,” he says.
On the other hand, the footfall for Meghna Gulzar’s ‘Talvar’, which clashed with the Akshay-starrer, is slowly but steadily increasing. “The film has won over the critics as well as the gentry. It will easily break even since it has been made on a modest budget (nearly Rs 35 crore),” adds Mehra.
