Yet another film is doing amazingly well at box office despite being trashed as senseless by the critics. The third film in the ‘Housefull series starring Hrithesh Deshmukh, Abhishek Bachchan and Akshay Kumar has clocked in 51 crore in just three days, and if everything goes well, may even reach the 100 crore mark – which has become kind of elusive for many a Bollywood film.
The last film that reached the 100 crore club has also been an Akshay Kumar’s film ‘Airlift’. On the first day, if the critics remarks are anything to go by, ‘Housefull3’ should have been a major flop, however the audience’s tastes have once again proved to be as unpredictable as ever.
Down South, recently it was Allu Arjun’s film ‘Sarainodu’ that exceeded all expectations and defied critics thrashing to make it big and become the only film to have survived amongst the summer releases. In fact it has made big business over seas and also Kerala, where the film has been dubbed into Malayalam.
