After the euphoria surrounding 'Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram Leela', the releases that followed couldn’t quite make an impact. Both 'Gori Tere Pyaar Mein' and 'Singh Saab The Great' were expected to take an opening of 40-50 per cent, but that was not the case, especially for the former, which just couldn’t take a head start.

The Karan Johar production saw minimal footfalls in most part of the country, collecting not even Rs 3 crores on the very first day. While the reviews ranged from decent to good, the audience was clearly missing for this Imran Khan-Kareena Kapoor starrer. The weekend saw collections of a mere Rs 10 crore*. For a high-profile production house like Dharma, these are indeed dismal figures for a mainstream commercial film.

 

In comparison, 'Singh Saab The Great’s' performance was better although the numbers expected were higher. While the first day collections were around Rs 5 crores, it just stayed stable with the weekend closing at the Rs 15 crore* mark. The Sunny Deol-starrer saw maximum moolah come in from single screens where the footfalls continued to increase due to positive word-of-mouth.

At multiplexes, it was yet again 'Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram Leela' that continued to rule the roost, thereby trampling over 'Gori Tere' that was touted to do well in multiplexes. It will be a challenge for the Punit Malhotra film to hold its ground over the week. On the other hand, 'Singh Saab' still has a chance to rake in some more moolah from single screens until 'Bullett Raja' arrives on the coming Friday.
