Sanju, directed by Rajkumar Hirani, and starring Ranbir Kapoor as Sanjay Kapoor has emerged as an instant success. It has gotten the approval of both critics and audiences, and has raked an astonishing, 34 crores at the Box Office, according to Box Office India. It has the third highest NETT collection for a non holiday release, and has performed exceedingly well at the multiplexes. This is going to be a good news for Ranbir Kapoor, who previous movie were not accepted by the audiences, and failed at the Box office. If the movie maintains the positivity thorough the opening day collection and into the weekend, it could become one of the biggest hits of the year.
The movie is doing great business in urban cities like Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore. It has also gotten good reception by the audiences, who are praising Ranbir’s performance as the main reason to see the biopic. It doesn’t reach to the cinematic delights of Munna Bhai franchise or 3 idiots, but, for a movie based on the life of an actor who was considered a terrorist and has served time in prison for his crimes, the reactions are encouraging.
The movie is continue to grow in the weekend, as more people get to cinema’s on their day off. The movie has proved that Rajkumar Hirani is one of the most successful commercial directors in Bollywood, and his brand of cinema is never going to fail with the audiences. He hasn’t made any serious drama, and even his most controversial movie, PK, has generated a lot of love from the audiences. It was always clear that the movie could do decent business but now that it has been embrace wholeheartedly, the movie could smash every bit of its competition and emerge as a victor at end of the year, with much awards talk for Ranbir.
