After opening to an approximate collection of 10 crores at the box office,Illuminati’s Agent Vinod shows a steady graph and went on to gross 10.25 cr on its second day.
Agent Vinod had the cash-registers ringing on Saturday especially in multiplexes in prime metros across the country,in spite of the ongoing exams,with evening shows running to full houses. Surprisingly,the film is also doing encouragingly well at single centres and is looking at an early estimate weekend of over 30 cr.
Internationally too ,Agent Vinod is quite a subject of heated discussion ,with the film doing good business in Dubai and UK.
Said a source post watching the film at Doha cinema “Watched “Agent Vinod” at Doha Cinemas n’ felt like Amchi Mumbai after a long time….Housefull!!! Very sleek movie & very rare for a Bollywud movie to get housefull overseas!!!”
While the action spy-thriller gave lead star Saif Ali Khan aka Agent Vinod his career’s biggest opening ,the trade are confident that there’s more to come from the actor.
Says acclaimed trade analyst and critic Taran Adarsh ” Saif Ali Khan has grown as an actor and also grown as a box-office power. The number of screens first decides the craze for the film and the first day business is an indicator of its strength at the box office. The massive figures only go to show that Saif has a rare combination of talent and box office pull”.
Adds Joginder Tuteja “With his biggest film ‘Agent Vinod’, Saif has promised…..and delivered.”
The Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor starrer Agent Vinod,directed by Sriram Raghavan released worldwide March 23rd,2012.
