Talaash Box Office Opening

Aamir Khan’s Talaash has opened well at multiplexes all over India.

The All India opening is around 70%, Mysore circuit has performed the best where the film is running to full houses for the early morning shows. The opening is 80-90% at premium multiplexes in Noida, Gurgaon, Pune, Mumbai and New Delhi.

As expected, the response at single screens is below the mark.

Early reports from the morning shows and the premiere held last night are good.

Stay tuned to Indicine for all the Talaash Box office updates.



  • Its a multiplex movie and its yet to release in multiplex in Goa.. has only released in single screens…but the response is ok

  • TALAASH Is Unoriginal Boring Film Pluses: Aamir Khan delivers fantastic performance as always, direction is tight and background score is super, Kareena Kapoor at her best and so is Rani, Nawazuddin and Rajkumar are good in supporting roles Minuses: 3rd rate copied script from Hollywood classics, bad screenplay and even worse lighting, songs does not add anything to the film Critic Rating: 3/5 Business Rating: 2/5 Verdict: Watch it for only and only for super performance for all 3 lead stars Detail Analysis: First of all tomake things clear, I just read couple of reviewsby some leading critic saying that it is not a copy of “KahaanI” or it is not based on the book and this is best suspense thriller made in India. Sorry, it is shamelessly copied from Hollywood, not from one but few of them. Aamir’s character can not sleep and he is a cop, so does Al Pacino in “Insomnia” directed by master Christopher Nolan. Aamir talks to someone and sees someone whom no one else can see, so does Bruce Wills in highly acclaimed blockbuster “The Sixth Sense” directed by M. Night Shyamlan. And undercurrent of the films including lighting and background score are lifted from Leonardo starrer “Shutter Island” directed by great Martin Scorsese. Plus you can see clear influence of earlier Farhan starrer “Karthik Calling Karthik”, an accident with a child and its haunting memory. So this was about the originality of the film. 2nd film does not offer any entertainment. It does not mean that film should had the item number or cheap jokes but film lacks any effort to offer anything new in a rather rosy style. Story is all all about a murder of one bollywood hero Armaan Kapoor and our Inspector Shekawat (played by Aamir) trying to solve the puzzle. In terms of performance, Aamir Khan is top notch as always and he gets into the skin of the character like anything. Actually he is the one who makes you sit for two hours. He lights up every shot with his genuine effort and intensity. Rani plays the character of Roshni perfectly in de- glam look. She tells us again that no one can act like her in a role which demands only performance. Kareena Kapoor as Rosy looks dreamy and fits the bill. Supporting cast is here awesome. Rajkumar Yadav as Aamir’s assistant and Nawazudding as Taimur lift every scene they are in. Nawazuddin deserves special mention for being consistent throughout his career until now. Background score is super but has clear impression of Hollywood inspiration and lighting irritates you not once but several times. Music is complete unnecessary and songs do not add anything to the film. But the real blame goes to writers, Zoya Akhtar and Reema Kagti who make a bad copy cat product which can’t be saved by even exceptional performances or good direction. Story never rises above the average and in the end you keep gasping for more. Director Reema Kagti shows her command over the medium but the script is so uninspiring that it does not matter beyond a point. She gives some amazing scenes to Kareena and Aamir but beyond a point it gives you good sleeping time in cinema. Overall film is saved by Aamir, Kareena and Rani but will find it tough at box office. Multiplexes might do favor to the film for few days but masses will reject it out rightly. It is not sad but bad film though that is also a sad fact! Go for this one if you do not watch Hollywood films often or an Aamir Khan fan!

  • Aamir Khan’s Talaash, that released today, has opened to an excellent occupancy across the country at the Domestic Box Office.
    Talaash showed a pretty good opening at the Indian box office with about 80-90% occupancy in cities like Mumbai, New Delhi, Chandigarh and others. On the contrary, the single screens are doing little low business with approx 60-70% occupancy rate. Nevertheless, the numbers are still strong enough to be called huge.
    Moreover, due to the advance bookings for the late evening shows in almost every circuit across the country, the movie is expected to pick up very well later.

    Talaash is expected to make an approx business of 14-16 crores.

  • Talaash is a yet another classic from Mr.Aamir Khan. Reema has directed it brilliantly. its among the 3 best films of the year along with Kahaani & Barfi.

  • Lolz..jst think that ,If a genre like this could get around 16 crores opening day.what would happen if aamir khan had chosen mass appealing movie ??he would bring tsunami at the box office.I Swear talaash is a competition to the hollywood movies.

  • Talaash is easily one of the best movies in the last 2-3 years. It will completely jolt you. hope the indian audiences like something new offered to them.

  • after all those masala movies & stupid romantic movies comes the best movie of the year. TALAASH is something completely new for the indian public & is as good as some of the hollywood classics. Aamir Khan has once again proved why he’s the best.
    this year has been great for the hindi film industry. movies like KAHAANI, PST, BARFI, TALAASH, ENGLISH VINGLISH, GOW will all be remembered as cults in the coming years.

  • Well Said Zabo14!! No critics so far has mentioned that the film is a copy!! They are promoting the film as its Indias first suspense thriller!! Average Film!!

  • Talaash suspense- Aamir is assigned
    to solve a case.. He is married to
    Rani.. Aamir n Rani lost their son in
    an accident.. So Aamir is disturbed..
    Kareena helps Aamir to solve the
    case.. Later he finds that Kareena is
    a ghost (bhoot).. Kareena was a call
    girl who was killed by 3 guys.. N
    only Aamir could see Kareena..
    Aamir himself killed her murderers
    but forgot because of his illness.. So
    Talaash = Karthik calling Karthik +
    Kahaani.. Wd horror effects

    forget it I wasted my 200rs .
    if you wanna waste so go there and dont go with coke n corns go with balm and saradon

  • talking about performances, Aamir Khan will sure take you by surprise with this one as he manages an intense role with complete ease; his emotional moments will sure bring tears to your eyes. Aamir beautifully balances the? dichotomy of playing a tough cop on the surface, who he is weakened by the guilt from within. Rani Mukerji was a perfect fit for the role, and she does complete justice to it. But its Kareena Kapoor, who is the show stealer of ‘Talaash’,

  • Aamir Khan is back? and yes, with a bang. Even though this reviewer is not a die-hard fan of Aamir Khan, the truth is that you can love him or hate him, but there’s no escaping his films. Talaash, which was originally slated to release last year, proves once again this actor’s films are not to be skipped and completely worth the wait.

  • sunil lama, no problem, SRK got 15 crores with science imagination Ra One movie on the first day because of star power, the same with aamir too, opening day does not mattter but will the audience love the movie?, this is the question

  • @zabo yeap your review is complety on of the best. it is 80% copied from hollywood.
    pperformances are good.
    this film is 1/100th of kahani.
    aamir total dissapointment no perfection from you. really bad.
    now I am in talaash to back my money and time …..
    plz donate your money than waste crap of hollywood.

  • The plot of the film is what proves to be a real winner as it leads to a? logical yet questionable end While the movie is slow before the interval as it tries to establish the plot moving back and forth in time the second half will leave you scratching your head as you try to piece everything together along with the lead actor.In word,Outstanding,

  • Boring first half. Predictable story. Copied from three hollywood movie. Pathetic ending. Waste the money. Nawasudin siddiqi is excellent. Aamir is average compare to sarfarosh. Kareena is good. Rani has small role. Dont waste time and money. Watch life of pi instead or kahaani

  • I seen it boring movie.
    but akshay fans please dont hate him plz watch talaash.

    @nilesh complete agreed it is totally copied from hollywood.
    I am huge fan of aamir but talaash is waste

    bad luck d3 n pk to watch.
