Rockstar: Rahman, Ranbir jam it steadily for a 64 crores worldwide weekend

Cinemimi[Tuesday, November 15, 2011]
'Rockstar' is getting pats on its back from the audience and the industry, the media and the public had hailed the performance of Ranbir Kapoor in the film as his best. Needless to add the magic of AR. Rahman was the key in setting the mood of the target audience during the promotion that resulted in an anthem called "Sadda Haq" which is now a rage. Plus other gems like "Naadan Parindey" and "Kun Faya Kun".

As praises for Ranbir's performance are pouring in, the latest one is of prime significance as it comes from the ace Shabana Azmi. She has twitted, "Ranbir's performance in Rockstar is totally original he inhabits Jordan's complex world and infuses it with childlike honesty that's believable."

She further added, "Imtiaz Ali's writing in Rockstar is surprising and unpredictable. Tugged at my heartstrings...Hindi cinema is finally coming of"

In spite of mix response, Shree Ashtavinayak Cinevision Ltd and Eros International's 60 crores magnum opus 'Rockstar' released in more than 2,000 screens worldwide on 11th November 2011, has had a successful opening week with a collection of Rs. 53 crore in India (Net collection: Rs. 37crore) and Rs. 11 crore overseas in its first three days.

Rahman's soul stirring magic and Ranbir's bravura performance have saved the day for the film and have ensured that the movie sails through despite its flaws. That's the reason the collections had been rock steady....

The movie took a super opening of Rs.11 crore all India and continued the winning streak by Rs.11.5 crore on Saturday and Rs.12.5 crore on Sunday, taking the 3-day tally to Rs.35 crore net.

Speaking on the film's fabulous performance, says Shree Ashtavinayak Ashtavinayak Cinevision Ltd, "We are extremely glad that Rockstar has received such widespread appreciation and are elated with the continuing enthusiastic response to the film from all our centers. Working with such a talented and creative team was a great privilege, and we are hugely optimistic of numbers rising in the weeks to come!"

Adds Nandu Ahuja, Sr. VP, Distribution, Eros International Media Ltd said, "Imtiaz Ali has once again captured the audiences' imagination and coupled with Ranbir Kapoor's exemplary performance, Rockstar has opened to a superb response across the country, especially in the multiplexes. With colleges re-opening this week, we are looking at the film remaining steady at the box office through the week".
