Raid has emerged as a solid success in two weeks flat. The film has already collected 90 crore* at the Box Office which is a very good number. Reason being that even after a double digit start on its first Friday, it had seemed that the maximum lifetime distance that the film would cover is 90 crore. However what has made the difference is solid hold that the film has managed in its second week.
The film has stayed ultra stable and as a matter of fact even shown upward trend in the latter part of the second week, owing to partial holidays. Even today the film would register good numbers due to Good Friday holiday. In fact the film has an outside chance of entering the 100 Crore Club by the close of third weekend itself, though all said and done it would reach that milestone during this week for sure.
Ajay Devgn has shown his consistency yet again with the successful run of the film and it is good to see a realistic drama like Raid bringing on audience. For director Raj Kumar Gupta, the film’s success has proven to be a shot in the arm as now he can well look forward to a much more interesting innings in Bollywood for years to come.
