Year 2009 a film released named 3 Idiots and defied all box office logic and literally remained rock steady for weeks to collect an unimaginable 200+ crore nett when film were dreaming of crossing 100 crore nett mark. Had it been released today, who knows with increasing screens, ticket prices it might have collected 300 or even 400 crore nett.
Now again magic trio of Aamir Khan, Rajkumar Hirani and Vidhu Vinod Chopra is back with PK. And what film does which is something similar to 3 Idiots at least in first week. Film is heading for 180+ crore nett in 1st week. Who knows if audiences keep coming back to theaters every week, forget Dhoom 3 records even touching 300 crore nett is possible. Yes, PK is definitely the film of the year so far by every means. Be it critics, be it classes, be it masses, everyone is loving the film, yes there will be few exceptional cases who might give thumbs down, but that is logical.
Regarding similarity with Oh My God? Yes PK has mane similarities with OMG. Makers are not openly coming forward and denying that. Does love stories don't have similarities? Does action masala entertainer don't have similarities? So, do social message film. But what's important is treatment of the film. In every way PK is different from OMG in that. OMG is a classic no doubt and we should respect that also. It was released in much lesser screens with no promotion and still film went onto become Major Hit.
Now coming to PK. Yes film is trending exceedingly well. Film second week will literally say where it stands in all time list. But going by first week trending film is certainly heading for Highest grosser of the year surpassing Kick. If all goes well it will be touch and go with Dhoom 3 for all time highest grosser ever. 300? It is still very much on, but film needs to remain extremely steady in higher end at least for another 7 days or so.
Finally PK is ruling audiences heart everywhere across India and that what matters most. For example, film is doing extremely well in Northern Part of India where strong cold wave is going on. Still there is no stoppage in occupancy of PK there.
Sach mein, 'Aa Gaya PK, Cha Gaya PK'!
