I just loved the movie in Totality, it was great fun to watch Kareena Bouncing around like a cat on the prowl. Akshay Kumar was his usual self excellent!!! Let critics be damned and just go for it guys!
Q. How did the first day business of Kambakkht Ishq compare with Singh Is Kinng, Ghajini and Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi?
A. Around 10% lower than Ghajini, very similar to Singh Is Kinng and around 10% higher than Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi.?
Q. How much business can Kambakkht Ishq do in the long run? Can it do 70 crore?
A. Its very hard to say at the moment. It can get to 70 crore but will have to sustain after the first weekend and also do well in its second weekend.
Q. Would it be right to say that Kambakkht Ishq mega opening is a testament to the huge star power of Akshay Kumar as the film is very bad and has been badly thrashed by all reviewers?
A. Bad film and good film is one's own perspective and this thing can never be decided as opinions differ. Most big hindi films get bad reviews as reviewers probably come to watch something that is not to their taste as the big films are made to cater to the public at large so the huge investments can be recovered. All the big openers like Singh Is Kinng, Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, Ghajini and now Kambakkht Ishq managed records due to many factors like good promotion, hype, hit music as well as the male leads.

guys (especially who hates AK)dont get carrried away by this baffoons review. if one is willing enough, they can pinpoint faults in god let alone the movie lol. so chillax n watch this movie. its gud. dont go in2 logical shit or technical shit..bla bla bla.. if yu really wanna review a movie for perfection forget about bollywood and take turn towards hollywood. they hav some perfectly fabricated storylines. so chillaalll
Kambakkht Ishq has grossed around 24.50 crore nett including paid previews over its first weekend. The 125 paid previews grossed around 40 lakhs with the Friday to Sunday total being around 24 crore nett.
The film had the second biggest first day in history and the first weekend was the fourth biggest in history. The collections of the film fell slightly at some places on Saturday while Sunday saw very strong collections. Mumbai was affected by very bad weather on Saturday and Sunday which meant lower than expected collections in the area. Delhi/UP and East Punjab are extraordinary and have seen the best collections.
Kambakkht Ishq will be a hit if it can get decent collections over the weekdays but if collections fall heavily it will have a lower status. If collections are strong over the weekdays then it may even turn out to be a superhit.
Akshay i really like you n i simply luvd the way u do comic roles.. you were gr8 wen ur movies were not tht mch hyped or wen u wre not comapred with SRK and other biggies.. but nw the result is u cant really carry this burden of expectations which ppl hv frm u..Its never easy to uphold this "Superstar/King" crown. Nobdy can become a king by giving 5-6 hits in a row.. wat do we call it...a KING for a year?? no.. wat about SRK..(NO matter u luv him or hate him) who has been ruling the box office and giving us frequent hits from the past 17-18 yrs...? Hez the real Superstar n he deserves to uphold his Crown.. luv u KING KHAN!!

SRK does one film in 12-15 months whereas Akki has the confidence to do 5 films an year. Any star having some following will be able to deliver a hit after 12 15 months because his loyal fans will certainly see his movie...whereas in the case of a star who does 5- 6 movies, this does not apply...each fan of his cannot watch all his movies...Also, a star doing one film a year selects Deewali or christmas for release whereas the star doing 5 - 6 films a year cannot release all his films at the same time...But Akki is the only star who has not only given 5 - 6 hits an year like Amitabh Bachan or Rajesh Khanna who were the real stars who gave back to back hits...The Real Number One is one who gives 4 - 5 Superhits in an year and not one who gives two hits in three years...So try to see reason...It is not for just for nothing that Akki gets the highest amount for doing a film...He is the EMPEROR....
