Wanted is a box office HIT!

Salman Khan after a lean patch, which included several disasters Post-Partner (2006), has finally hit the bullseye at the Indian box-office.

Wanted has broken the 1st Monday record set by Ghajini in December last year, which is an achievement in itself although Monday was a nation-wide holiday. With weekend business of around 18 crores and EID business of 7 crores, Wanted takes its 4 day total to a spectacular 25 crores. With business expected to remain steady over the working weekdays, the Salman Khan starrer could end up with a net gross of 38 crores for Week 1. We predicted 45 crores for the week, but due to the movie not performing upto expectation in multiplexes especially on Day 1 and 2, the collections would be slightly short of extra-ordinary / record breaking.

The word of mouth is fantastic and the movie is dominating the single screens in smaller cities and towns.

Salman Khan has finally scored at the box office and returns with a bang into the Top 5. Ayesha Takia Azmi’s couldn’t have ┬áhoped for a better start post-marriage. And finally Prabhu Deva is a director to look forward tom he’ll be in demand much like Ghajini director AR Murugadoss.

Update : The latest updates trickling in indicate out-of-the-world business on Tuesday, close to 6 crores nett gross. Business on Wednesday has been very steady. 40 crores in Week 1 is possible!!

Dil Bole Hadippa update : For those wondering about Dil Bole Hadippa’s fate, here’s bad news. The movie has crashed on Tuesday almost everywhere, Wednesday witnessed a further drop in collections. HIT is highly unlikely, a flop could be signs of a remarkable career coming to an end. ┬áTime for Rani to get married, you think?

Anyway, Wanted is a HIT and Salman is BACK! Salman fans and others, drop in your comments below!!

  • YES he is back, but when was he gone?
    He is real SUPER STAR (CommonMens Super Hero)

  • Wanted is so entertaining and Salman Khan makes it work big time. Sallu mia is exceptional in the movie…A must watch for all….

  • wel tis prety much seals the 5th spot which was hanging..n rightly so Salman has much bigger fan base than
    saif n shahid combined…the movie is rocking in single screens.
    IMO saif n shahid cannot be called superstars yet..superstars as has been seen carry the entire load
    n bring in success even wit avg. script.
    LAK was a sucess mainly bcoz of Imitiaz Ali n Kaminey though a Avg.fare had the best script and director.
    i dont say shahid wasnt good but these(Guddu/Charlie) characters come once in lifetime…most plp cash on to it…

  • awesome debut from prabhu deva to bollywood,salman and aysha are superb in there roles…
    hats off to PRAKASH RAJ in is sense of humour acting in second half…..
    prakash raj is the WANTED person of our indian film industry

  • @ Veer. U r veer or stupid veera from DBH. Come on man, Wanted is going to b a blockbuster and u r saying it a semihit. In which world, do u live? Dont u see tv, check webs. In fact u r defying the whole country. Come on veer dont be so stupid. Wanted is a blockbuster.

  • Hi, if we thinking about wanted, Its awesome & good movie. salman proved that he is only the star who never promoted by big director & producers like yashraj benner film. He is not like shahrukh khan who always sign the big benner film like yashraj.
    Salman does’nt w8 4 big benner, he only actor who gives the chance to become director, music director like sanjay leela bansali or himesh.
    Salman miya u r good human being among film ind. Allah hafiz

  • i recently watched “wanted” and all i can say is “superb”. i have also seen pokiri which is an original film but that hero is not physically doesn’t fit into this action flick. he is alright but salman makes it an excellent. believe me guys, if you haven’t watched the movie yet then go and watch and you will encourage others to watch like i am doing thru this comments. Salman, you are the best! SRK, I started hating you ever since you fought with salman. you have forgotten all the favours that salman did to you during your struggle days. you are SCUKS!

  • in 2009 salman’s movies are :-

    wanted: blockbuster hit of the year
    main aur mrs. khnna : super hit
    london dreams : super duper hit

  • Wanted rocks and salman is awesome again but now with action, i have watched this movie in telugu & tamil but wanted rocks all thanx to SALMAN KHAN…. he is a genuine rock star

  • i guess salman has proved that he is a one man army not like Mr King Khan who lives in fantasies and choses his friends to help him making the same kind of movies and thinks that he is very cool,
    Salman has totally changed the trend of the indian cinema by making such a fantastic movie
