Paresh Rawal's satirical-comedy-drama film "OMG Oh My God" seems to be attracting and entertaining movie-goers a lot over the past few days. The movie which opened to dull start has been picked business pretty well during the weekend and weekdays.
The Umesh Shukla-directorial movie collected a lower-than-expected ₹18.5 crores in the opening weekend and ₹4.6 crores on Monday. The movie took advantage of the national holiday for Gandhi Jayanti on Tuesday, collecting ₹8 crores and thus taking the overall total to ₹ 31.25 crores, trade analyst and film critic Taran Adarsh said.
The Akshay Kumar and Paresh Rawal starrer is also a big hit in the overseas market. The film already crossed the weekend business of "Rowdy Rathore" and "Cocktail" in New Zealand on Saturday.
Looking at the first day box office collections of "OMG Oh My God" it initially appeared that Akshay Kumar had another flop movie in his name after giving two blockbuster hits this year with "Rowdy Rathore" and "Housefull 2". The remarkable jump in business has given some relief to the actor and also surprised film critics.
"The big jump on Tuesday is majorly because the single screens also caught up," Koimoi.com reported.
The movie will possibly face tough competition from Sridevi's much-awaited movie "English Vinglish" releasing on Oct 5. "English Vinglish" marks Sridevi's comeback to the silver screen after a gap of 14 years and the film has received positive reviews from critics.
Until the release of "English Vinglish", Paresh Rawal and Akshay Kumar will rule the box office.
