Bollywood release Prem Ratan Dhan Payo (I Received A Treasure Called Love) smashed a number of records in its debut in India and abroad for Fox International Productions and Fox Star Studios.
The film, starring Salman Khan and Sonam Kapoor, is directed by Sooraj Barjatya and produced by the veteran Rajshri Productions banner, founded by his father Tarachand Barjatya.
Prem Ratan opened on Nov. 19, a day after the Diwali festival to cash in on the four-day holiday weekend, which resulted in a $31 million worldwide haul from 4, 801 screens in seven markets.
As one of India's most bankable stars, Khan's pulling power saw the film recording the biggest opening weekend of all time for a Bollywood title in the U.K. earning $1.5 million. In the U.S. it received the biggest ever release for a Hindi film, opening on 284 screens and collecting $2.4 million, landing at the ninth spot. The title is considered among the four top Bollywood openers in the U.S.
In India, the film smashed the record for the biggest Bollywood opening of all time taking $27 million over the four-day festive weekend. This overshadowed previous record holder Happy New Year, starring actor Shah Rukh Khan, which collected $17.9 million when it opened during the Diwali weekend last year.
The prime Diwali release window didn't see any major competition for the film in terms of either Bollywood or Hollywood releases. Sony will open James Bond title Spectre here on Nov. 20.
“With the exception of a couple of genuinely exciting sequences, director-writer Sooraj Barjatya’s latest syrupy extravaganza Prem Ratan Dhan Payo is a highly predictable effort, ” THR said in its review. “That won’t stop fans of the film’s star, Salman Khan, from queuing in droves.”
Khan and Barjatya's association dates back to the director's 1989 breakout Maine Pyar Kiya (I Have Loved) which catapulted the then newcomer actor into super stardom. The duo teamed again up for one of Bollywood's biggest hits, 1994's Hum Aapke Hai Koun (Who Am I To You).
Khan, 49, has delivered back-to-back hits following his previous record-breaking blockbuster Bajrangi Bhaijaan, which opened in July released by Eros International and is estimated to have collected over $75 million worldwide.doing good deeds for others essay good deeds for life good deeds dvd good deeds cartoon no good deeds movie torrent good deeds list islam what is the meaning of good deeds movie good deeds good deeds free movie download kids doing good deeds where to watch good deeds online free examples of good deeds in the bible good deeds project no good deeds torrent 10 good deeds good deeds wiki doing good deeds to others princess diana good deeds good deeds day 2016 movie good deeds on dvd good deeds never go unnoticed all good deeds movie good deeds on demand comcast destiny good deeds good deeds at school 5 good deeds good deeds movie cast bragging about good deeds quotes everyday good deeds insurance commercial good deeds watch free good deeds a good deeds our good deeds are like filthy rags 7 good deeds 100 good deeds of eddie mcdowd all good deeds 2020 good deeds soundtrack mp3 people doing good deeds caught on camera long speech on good deeds never die secret good deeds tyler perrys good deeds review tyler perry good deeds youtube our good deeds are filthy rags 100 good deeds no good deeds wiki watch movie good deeds online good deeds manger good deeds movie online free good deeds feedback good deeds pembroke ma the good deeds movie good deeds trailer youtube hadith doing good deeds until death overtook donald trump good deeds fact check loukoumis good deeds cast of good deeds mother teresa good deeds your good deeds will not save you verse lacey chabert strip 10 good deeds tyler perrys good deeds movie good deeds tyler perry the words "good words, good thoughts, good deeds" were used to sum up the view of morality of the the russian orthodox church and good deeds examples of good deeds good people dirty deeds nazi international good deeds day good deeds ideas loukoumis good deeds athletes doing good deeds where inthe bible does say about good deeds good deeds at school good deeds tyler perry full movie free doing good deeds images tyler perry good deeds clips good deeds community center gulfport what does the bible say about bragging about good deeds zoroastrianism good thoughts good deeds all good deeds 2020 good deeds llc famous people doing good deeds good deeds to do for others necklace of good deeds bdo ledger of good deeds mr good deeds cast viral good deeds one hundred good deeds bracelets good deeds actress don't do good deeds to be seen serbian good deeds
