Let's talk about Shaitaan first. After collecting Rs. 81.60 crores in the first week, the film continued to establish itself quite well in the second week as well. The second weekend started off well for the film, then that jump on Saturday really boosted it even further in a big way, and post that Sunday's double-digit score was the icing on the cake. The rest of the working days stayed at those Rs. Range from 2.50 to 3 crores and that was good enough to take the film beyond the Rs. Marks 115 crores and closes at Rs. 117.50 crore*. The film should cross Rs. 140 crores in no time and then his journey to raise the next Rs. 10 crore to reach Rs. A milestone of Rs 150 crore would be quite interesting.

On the other hand, yodha It has had a good first week at the box office. The movie started on the expected lines and then jumped well on Saturday. Sunday's subsequent jump could have been larger and the same also applies to Monday, which saw a drop of just under 50% compared to Friday.

Fortunately, the film continued steady as of Tuesday without a major drop allowing it to surpass Rs. 25 crore mark. Now, if this had been the soundtrack of the weekend, the film would have been in a much more comfortable position. The milestone I would aim for is a lifespan of Rs. 40 crore, but for that it would all come down to how it holds up today (with a couple of new launches also coming in) and then the jump it manages over the weekend so that it can build more on Rs. 26 crores* he has raised so far.

*Dear All. Final numbers are awaited
