As was obvious and given, Aamir, Katrina and Christmas, along with brand DHOOM, have resulted in a blockbuster opening for Yash Raj Films' DHOOM 3. What is important to note is that both, the multiplexes as well as the single screens, are performing remarkably. In fact, the film is not only impressing the 'A ' centers but is also quite strong at the smaller centers.
Though it is a bit premature but as per early estimations, DHOOM 3 may end up netting around 30-32 crore on the opening day itself. Let us stick out our neck and predict (given the hype and feedback) that DHOOM 3 is likely to cross the 100 crore mark during the opening weekend itself!
What will be interesting to see is whether DHOOM 3 manages to beat the best single day record(s) of Salman Khan's EK THA TIGER and Shah Rukh Khan's CHENNAI EXPRESS, despite releasing on a non-holiday.
While that was about India, as per reports trickling in from the overseas, the Vijay Krishna Acharya directed DHOOM 3 has opened to a great response.
Meanwhile, Prabhu Dheva's Shahid-Sonakshi starrer, R...RAJKUMAR added another 16 crore in the second week, thus netting 60 crore (to be validated) in two weeks from India and is an above average fare. The film is likely to miss the semi-hit status due to the DHOOM 3 onslaught!
