MUMBAI: Director R Balki does come up with new ideas and his earlier two film,Cheeni KamandPaahave been appreciated. This time though the idea may be different from the run of the mill but its execution is messed up. The drawbacks lie in right from a long winding script to execution and editing.
Instead of cashing in on the idea,Shamitabhtries to cash in on Amitabh Bachchan’s histrionics and then going overboard with it.

There seemed to be no curiosity for the film as the weak opening day audience response and the collections reflected this. The film had a slight improvement on Saturday and was better on Sunday but the slide has begun as the new week started.

The film ended its opening weekend with a figure of Rs 12.45 crore, which is not enough to help it recoup its high price.

The other two releases,Jai Jawan Jai KisaanandHum Tum Dushman, failed to find enough audience needed for a screening.

Rahashyahas managed to collect only about Rs 70 lakh in its first week.

Baby reaped the benefit of poor oppositions and collected a reasonable Rs 16.7 crore in its second week to take its two week tally to Rs 68.8 crore.

Khamoshiyanremains poor as the film adds precious little to its weekend collection of Rs 5.75 crore in the next four days as it ends its first week with figures of Rs 9.15 crore.

Hawaizaadameets with a disastrous fate at the box office. Following its poor opening, it only goes downhill to end its first week with a meager Rs 3.55 crore.

Dolly Ki Dolialso gets to survive in its second week thanks to poor oppositions by adding Rs 1.1 crore in its second week to take its two week total to Rs 13 crore.

PK collects approximately Rs 45 lakh in its seventh week for a seven week total of Rs 329.75 crore.
