And that is how it has been. After a record opening day (40.50 crore), the film saw another good day (30.50 crore) and is on course to be a super hit.

'Prem Ratan Dhan Payo' has also started with a bang in the Overseas, grossing $1.65m, on the first day (Thursday.

 Guddu Ki Gun  Verdict: Flop
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 2 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 2 crore
Meanwhile the Kunal Khemu' starrer, 'Guddu Ki Gun', could not make a mark except in massy belts of North and Central India and is a box office failure.

 Main Aur Charles  Verdict: Below average
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs. 6 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 6 crore
Amongst all the releases it was the Randeep-Adil starrer, 'Main Aur Charles', which put up a reasonable performance and may just break even.

Moving on, after a decent extended (8-day) week (37 crore) Vikas Bahl’s Pankaj, Shahid and Alia starrer, 'Shaandar', collapsed totally, and is a box-office debacle, given the huge (60-61 crore)involved costs.

Concluding with Luv Ranjan’s Kartik Aryan, Nusrat Bharucha, Sunny Nijjar Singh and Sonalii Sehgall starrer,'Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2', after two good weeks (37.50 crore and 14.50 crore), the film saw another productive week. Given the very reasonable cost (15 crore), 'PKP2 is a super hit.
