‘Agneepath’ becomes biggest first day opener: weekend shows in Pakistan pre-booked

Highly anticipated remake of 1990’s classic, Agneepath, is all set to take box office by storm. The Taran Malhotra directed, Agneepath has been in theatres for just a day and already raked in over 20 crore approximately. Critics and fans that have seen the film are all praises for Karan Johar’s remake. Not even one of the critics have rated the movie below 3.5 stars hinting it’s a sure-shot hit. Response of the movie in Pakistan has been similarly overwhelming. Distributed by IMGC Global, this movie saw overbooked shows on its Thursday opening. A representative of the sub-distributor, IMGC Global said that all the shows in major cinemas are pre-booked.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh said, “Agneepath opening: Not just Hrithik’s biggest opener, but also amongst the biggest opener of all times. It should have a record day one collection.” His verdict says that Agneepath is a fitting tribute to the masterwork. The movie has all the potential to scale dizzy heights of victory and catapult Hrithik Roshan as the newest member of the 100 cr club, besides providing the Hindi film industry with the first blockbuster of 2012. The first three weeks of January 2012 has not been good for the theatre owners with all the previous releases flopping at the box office. Some trade pundits say it is neck-to-neck with Salman Khan’s Bodguard, which had collected Rs 21 crore on the first day of its release.
