Mukul Sharma’s short story translated on screen by Kanan Iyer despite all its three witches in the film failed to create a symphonic chord with its audiences. While a less innovative story worked better at the box office with its relatively fresher star cast, Aashiqui 2 has found a new feather on its cap. By the conclusion of the film’s Monday collections, it was already a hit and leveling up to Vishal Bharadwaj and Ekta Kapoor’s Ek Thi Daayan starring Konkona Sen Sharma and Emraan Hashmi and Huma Qureshi in mesmerizing roles.

With Aashiqui 2‘s Tuesday figures catapulting the film’s total earnings to a hefty 27.25 crore, the film has now surpassed the lifetime collections of Ek Thi Daayan which calculates to 26 crores. Perhaps technically, Ek Thi Daayan was a better film than Aashiqui 2. But Romance as a genre is always preferable to ghastly horror.

Aashiqui 2, which was made on a short budget of 8 crores has clearly earned more than its rightful due perhaps, earning back all its investment within less than a week of its release. The pace of the film is speedy and it is achieving a good record in a very short span of time. It won’t be surprising if before the wake of this Friday’s quintessential releases, Bombay Talkies and Shootout At Wadala, the film manages to match up to its immediate predecessor Jolly LLB which rests at number 8 on the Koimoi Top 10 Movies List of the year, currently with a total earning of 32 crores.
