BO performance of Chashme Baddoor
All India collections: Rs 19.20 crore (opening weekend)
David Dhawan's Chashme Baddoor may have received flak from the critics but the audience seems to be giving him a thumbs up.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweets, "#ChashmeBaddoor passes 'Monday test'. Getting reports from various circuits that Mon has begun on a super note. Better than Fri
Adarsh earlier tweeted," #ChashmeBaddoor collected approx Rs. 19.20 cr nett in its opening weekend. Breakup: Fri 5.18 cr, Sat 6.27 cr, Sun *estimates* 7.75 cr. Fab! #ChashmeBaddoor CI: Fri 22.40 lacs, Sat 24.60 lacs, Sun 35.60 lacs ... Mysore circuit: Fri 21 lacs, Sat 34 lacs, Sun 40 lacs. Fab growth!"
With Saturday's collections making it past those of first day, Taran tweeted, "#ChashmeBaddoor has had a rocking Sunday. Better than Fri and Sat. Super growth in every circuit. Numbers being compiled!"
Made with a budget of Rs. 17 crore, the funny drama has been produced by Viacom 18 Motion Pictures. What seems to have worked in the favour of the movie is that the director revamped the script and set the story of Chashme Baddoor in Goa focusing on the current lot of youngsters and their lifestyle.

"You remind me of Shabana Azmi," guffaws our don't-give-a-damn hero to the social activist heroine. In the first-half they clash over idlis, ideologies and idle chatter. Mismatched as they are, and we are reminded twice that she is older, Kareena Kapoor-Khan and Imran Khan trudge along cutely till mid-point after which the narrative shuffles noisily into a village in Gujarat where it all falls apart.
"Last Vegas" is a funny, heartwarming and a touching buddy film about ageing and male bonding whose premise is so very much like the 2009 released film "The Hangover". But unlike in "The Hangover", these four buddies are geriatrics who jam up after 58 years of separation.
