Box office report: 'Yamla Pagla Deewana' off to a good start

The Deol storm sets the cash registers ringing

It was a forgone conclusion that Yamla Pagla Deewana, featuring the trinity of true-blue Punjabis -- Dharmendra, Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol -- would set new records at theatres in Punjab.

Little surprise then that the film opened to an exceptionally good response at theatres in the north Indian state. Even in New Delhi, which has a large Punjabi population, YPD attracted a lot of footfalls to single screen theatres.

The movie, however, saw an average opening in Mumbai, particularly at multiplexes, with just about 40 percent occupancy. Single screen theatres still had a better response. The south belt too did not lap the movie as enthusiastically as the north.

Yet, YPD is expected to have a decent first weekend and if it picks up in Mumbai, might even go on to be a hit.

On the other hand, there were few takers for Turning 30, starring Gul Panag and Purab Kohli. The film opened to an average response of 20-30 percent at multiplexes. Since the film is mostly in English, it’s aimed at multiplex audiences only.

Last week’s release No One Killed Jessica is keeping steady at theatres.
