Kahaani reigns supreme at the box-office

Kahaani opened slow with limited shows on Thursday, picked up slightly on Friday. On Saturday, with overwhelmingly positive word-of-mouth, the Vidya Balan starrer almost doubled it’s collections. Sunday was even better, as reports suggest better occupancy than Saturday for every show.

With collections of around 9 crores from Thursday to Saturday, the all India weekend collections should be around 15 crores. While the figure is much lower than films like Murder 2 (22 crore) and The Dirty Picture (31 crore) – Kahaani didn’t have music that rocked charts, had no sexual content and without the presence of a male lead, relied almost entirely on Vidya Balan.

In comparison, Ladies vs Ricky Bahl, an out-an-out commercial film, with more shows and backed by a big production house like Yashraj Films, collected approximately the same (16 crores) in it’s first weekend.

Here’s hoping Kahaani continues it’s fabulous run at the box-office. It’s a film that deserves every bit of acclaim that it’s getting, and more! Congrats to the entire team, especially Sujoy Ghosh and Vidya Balan.



  • Another contender I see..is Vicky Donor….Indicine..if u can share the trailer..its very attractive with Ayushman Khurana (anchor) in lead role

  • It’s the star power as I already said.. If the dirty picture wasn’t released yet and Kahani was before, 100% the movie had flopped although it’s a good movie, can’t deny it, but it’s not an entertaining film for the audience, Vidya did it, congratulations

  • i think vidya is one of the best actresses and she always has very good performances . she is able to make films successfully without a khan or whatever that is great

  • what to say, vidhya rocked. i wish she should get the national award again for this film.
    definitely , she will break all the records . it’s her time . what a performance.

    katrina kaif and kareena kapoor proved that they are nothing and nothing and nothing.
    but it’s still exciting that producers are going for this flop actress.

    Let a new era in bollywood flourishes with smart vidhya balan and talented others . oh,
    please no more kareena or priyanka . they are all finished . public don’t want to see this
    nothing to do actress.

    vidhya ji , come with another superhit ——– we all are waiting:::::::::::::;
