A couple of years back, Akshay Kumar was hailed as one of the biggest superstars in the country. But the slide started with Chandni Chowk to China in 2009 and since then, apart from Sajid Khan’s Housefull, most of his other films have failed at the box-office.
Desi Boyz released yesterday to a decent response all over India. Business at single screens, were Akshay Kumar has a strong fan-following, was good.
Again, like most of his films, collections were better in North India. Day 1 business is expected to be around 8 crores net.
Unlike some of Akshay’s last few releases, the word-of-mouth is good. Majority of those who have watched the film, haven’t walked out disappointed.
Like always, Saturday and Sunday will be very important. If the film manages to pick up over the weekend, we expect the weekend to be around 25 – 28 crores.
Desi Boyz HIT or FLOP: We’d pick the former, HIT (opening was lower than expected, but having watched the film, we believe it will pick up and also sustain pretty well during the weekdays).
