The good performance of last week’s No One Killed Jessica coupled with the fantastic opening of this week’s Yamla Pagla Deewana in North India has come like a ray of hope in the industry.

Yamla Pagla Deewana’s opening was excellent in the single-screen cinemas of North India and fair in the multiplexes. In Gujarat and Saurashtra, collections shot up from the second/third show itself. At many other centres too, a jump was witnessed as the day progressed. The reason being that Yamla Pagla Deewana is a mass entertainer. The film will also do very well in the single-screen cinemas and fair business in the multiplexes in the coming days. The producers of the film have already made a handsome profit before the film’s release, and the distributors, who’ve acquired the film, will also earn on their investments.

‘No One Killed Jessica’ has done well. Rani Mukherjee and Vidya Balan’s film made a total Rs. 11,96,98,873 from 260 cinemas. Vikalp, Impatient Vivek and Ashoka The Hero have all bombed.

In their 3rd week, Tees Maar Khan made Rs. 68,49,810 from 191 cinemas, Toonpur Ka Superrhero managed Rs. 13,62,035 from 77 cinemas while Isi Life Mein…! earned Rs. 6,16,952 from 9 cinemas.

Band Baaja Baaraat is still good even in its 5th week with Rs, 1,02,63,099 from 170 cinemas.
