‘Raajneeti’ Shocks; Next Only to ‘3 Idiots’

All predictions about ‘Raajneeti’ have failed. Yes, it was supposed to be a good film. Yes, it did carry good expectations. Yes, it did have a pan-India appeal. Yes, it did promise a good opening. But no, just about no one expected it to enjoy the second best opening ever after ‘3 Idiots’. ‘3 Idiots’, did I say? That’s right! ‘Raajneeti’ took an astonishing start and that too of such a scale that it ended up enjoying 34 crores (yes, your read it right) from the first weekend. This is simply unbelievable because in the process of doing so, it has also broken the records by ‘Kites’ and before that ‘Housefull’ which was at the third place till not many moons back.

Finding itself placed second in the elite list of super opening films like ‘3 Idiots’, ‘Kites’, ‘Housefull’ and ‘Ghajini’, ‘Rajneeti’ has scored and how. Early indications clear state that ‘Rajneeti’ will now challenge ‘Housefull’ and ‘My Name Is Khan’ to be the biggest money spinner of the year. Both the films have crossed 70 crores at the box office and though it would be an interesting journey for ‘Rajneeti’ from here on, it could well cross the milestone if it holds on quite well in the second weekend.

Will it be able to do? It possibly could because of three reasons:

1) When compared to ‘Kites’, which had opened just below, ‘Rajneeti’ is a far superior film.

2) It has been hailed by critics as well as appreciated by audience.

3) Reports at certain quarters are mixed but the feedback ranges from average to must watch. There are no ‘don’t watch’ comments.

Similar were the reports in case of ‘Housefull’ as well as ‘My Name Is Khan’ where no one ‘hated’ the film.

Of course a serious theme coupled with heavy treatment at places means that a repeat watch would be difficult to achieve. However, with no notable release this weekend and ‘Raavan’ being the only roadblock for next three weeks, ‘Rajneeti’ could well enjoy a comfortable place for itself under the sun.

What went right? As predicted in this very column last week, just about everything i.e. the plot, cast, music, buzz, hype, timing and promotion. Add to that some powerful performances by three pillars of the film – Ranbir Kapoor, Arjun Rampal and Manoj Bajpayee – and Prakash Jha ensured that a five year wait since the release of ‘Apaharan’ was pretty much worth it.

Katrina’s Last Minute Dubbing Correction

This is surely the first time in the history of Indian cinema that such a thing has happened. One wrongly-pronounced word in her crucial public speech in Raajneeti had Katrina Kaif almost hysterical with anxiety just days before release.

Raajneeti

This is the story of how she returned to dubbing after the film’s entire post-production was done and the film was ready for release. The incorrectly-pronounced word was satta (politics) which came out sounding like satya (truth) in her speech.
