Singham opened to bumper houses in most parts of the country today (July 22). If in some multiplexes, collections were below the mark, it was because of the uncertainty about the release in those multiplexes. It is common knowledge that the dispute between Reliance Entertainment (producers of Singham) and the multiplex chains got settled only last (July 21) night. As a result of this, the public was not sure whether the much awaited film would or would not be released in the multiplexes.
The audience is clapping, whistling, cheering, screaming & shouting in the cinemas.
What is noteworthy is that the public reaction in every multiplex and every single-screen cinema, irrespective of the kind of initial, is out of the world. People are clapping and applauding the scenes and the dialogues, the action and the star performances so loudly that it is impossible to hear all the dialogues in the cinema. Reports from different parts of India have it that women folk are as animated in their reactions in the cinema halls as the men folk. The audience is clapping, whistling, cheering, applauding, screaming and shouting in the cinemas. It is as if the audience has become part of the action on screen. In one word, it is C-R-A-Z-Y!
