Box office: 'Student Of The Year' off to a flying start

'Student Of The Year' starts with a bang at box office

Karan Johar’s magic works at box office again. His new release Student Of The Year, starring three newcomers, is off to a flying start at ticket windows.

The film, introducing Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt and Siddharth Malhotra, opened to a 50 percent to 60 percent response at theatres on Friday. The film released on about 1400 screens across the country, and going by the early estimates it has raked in a very good first-day collection ranging between Rs. 9 and Rs. 9.25 crore nett. The response was most heartening in NCR region where even single screen theatres drew in considerable footfalls.

The critics have been mixed about Student Of The Year, with some eulogizing it, while others labeling it a mere rehash of Karan Johar’s previous films, with some added inspiration from the hit youth films of Bollywood. But at the end of the day, it’s box office collections that matter and if the film picks up even 20 percent business on Saturday, it’s headed for a decent first weekend. So there’s every reason to celebrate for not just Karan Johar but the three newcomers as well.

Pitted opposite Student Of The Year, the other two releases Jaanleva 555 and Delhi Safari were almost washed out.

Meanwhile, all of the last week’s releases Aiyyaa, Bhoot Returns, Chittagong and Makkhi have been rejected by movie goers.

Akshay Kumar’s Omg Oh My God! is still cruising along slowly and has crossed the Rs. 73 crore nett mark. Sridevi’s English Vinglish too has turned out to be a hit.

The next week would see the clash of Chakravyuh and Rush on October 24, which is Wednesday and Dusshera holiday. Friday would see the release of Ajab Gazabb Love.
