‘Prem Ratan…’ mints Rs.129.77 crore in opening weekend


Bollywood superstar Salman Khan’s family drama film “Prem Ratan Dhan Payo” had a bumper opening weekend. The Hindi version of the Sooraj Barjatya directorial has minted almost Rs.130 crore in the first four days.

Released on November 12, a day after Diwali, “Prem Ratan Dhan Payo” reunites Salman with his “Hum Aapke Hain Koun..!” and “Hum Saath-Saath Hai” director Barjatya after a gap of 16 years.

According to a statement, the Hindi version of “Prem Ratan Dhan Payo”, which minted Rs.101.47 crore within three days of its release, collected Rs.28.30 crore on Sunday.

Also starring Sonam Kapoor, Anupam Kher, Swara Bhaskar, Armaan Kohli and Neil Nitin Mukesh, “Prem Ratan Dhan Payo” narrates the story of a royal family and how an outsider, Prem, played by Salman, tries to mend the broken bridges of the family.

According to trade analyst Taran Adarsh, the film has got a “solid” start but its upcoming collections will determine where the film is heading.

“#PremRatanDhanPayo packed a solid (four-day) weekend, maintaining consistent biz from Friday-Sunday. Monday onwards is crucial for the film. Weekdays will determine where #PremRatanDhanPayo is heading. With no major Hindi film releasing next Friday, should enjoy another good week,” Adarsh tweeted on Monday.

“While the response has been mixed (a commonality with all biggies), the families are patronising the film and that is a big plus. #PRDP,” he added.

“Prem Ratan Dhan Payo”, made on a budget of Rs.60 crore, also released in Tamil and Telugu.

    Unfortunate that all failures find one scgpoaeat – the Government! Who said this, “People get the Government they deserve.” The Indian business is as corrupt as anyone else in the country. They have cheated the consumer over the years. Even today when we have the two progressive laws in the country – the Consumer Protection Act and the Competition Act – the consumers and the small enterpreuners find it extremely difficult to get fair value for their expenditure. SONY is known for its after sales services; try seeking an after sales service in India for a SONY product and you will know. The Government is at fault that the undue protection which it gave to the Indian business through various import duties, made the Indian business more inefficient. One more point, the Indian businessman does pay a bribe for getting what is his right, but many a times he pays bribe for getting some undue advantage in an illegal manner. So, please let us not put all the blame on the Government all the times – let the business and the rest of us also share the blame.Surprisingly, most write-ups start with stating a particular misconception and end up with supporting and promoting another misconception.
