It’s a 50 for Ajay Devgn and R Madhavan starrer Shaitaan. The film started on a very good note, gained further momentum on Saturday and then was unstoppable on Sunday as well. As a result, over Rs. 20 crores came on the third day, what with the collections reaching Rs. 20.74 crores. One wouldn’t have expected the film to scale this kind of height in its opening weekend but that has happened indeed for this supernatural psychological thriller, which is the first ever in this genre to hit such numbers.

With this day-on-day momentum being in place for the film, it’s also further clear that it’s not done yet and there is a more that will come in during the weekdays as well, before finding good jumps all over again in the second weekend. The film is bound to have a good Monday and even if Rs. 6-7 crores come in, that would be rather strong. So far, the film has already collected Rs. 55.13 crores and though it has missed being amongst Top-5 weekend openers of Ajay Devgn, it’s just a spot below at Number 6.

The film has in fact surpassed the first three-day score of Baadshaho [Rs. 43.30 crores] and Bol Bachchan [Rs. 43.10 crores] with effortless ease and is just below Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior [Rs. 61.93 crores], which is at No. 5. A notch above that are films as contrasting as Total Dhamaal [Rs. 62.40 crores] and Drishyam 2 [Rs. 64.14 crores]. As for the biggest of the lot, Golmaal Again [Rs. 87.60 crores] and Singham Returns [Rs. 78 crores] are far ahead in the race. What Shaitaan would be looking at now are some solid weekdays that would help it come closer to the Rs. 100 crores mark in real quick time.

Hit, moving to superhit.
