15nov_Tamasha-Banner01Tamasha has done well over the weekend. The film took a good start on Friday (10.87 crore), showed growth on Saturday (13.17 crore) and then consolidated well on Sunday (14.12 crore), hence seeing a weekend of 38.23 crore. This has been a positive trend for the Imtiaz Ali directed film which was catering to a niche audience and was unlike any of the quintessential romcoms that hit the screens with every passing month. With a conventional narrative to boast of, the film has found good following from the target audiences, who have lapped up what was on display.

The film has now seen the best opening for a Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone starrer as their biggest weekend so far in 2015 was Roy (28.68 crore) and Piku (25.22 crore). Moreover, for Imtiaz Ali too, this is his biggest opening weekend ever, hence surpassing Love Aaj Kal (28 crore) and Rockstar (35 crore). What is all the more noticeable is that the film is now Ranbir Kapoor’s second highest weekend ever after Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani (62.11 crore) and also his best ever in over two and a half years.

Here are the opening weekend collections of last few Ranbir Kapoor starrers in the current decade:

Raajneeti (2010) – 34 crore

Anjaana Anjaani (2010) – 25.75 crore

Rockstar (2011) – 35 crore

Barfi! (2012) – 34.25 crore

Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani (2013) – 62.11 crore

Besharam (2013) – 34.37 crore

Roy (2015) – 28.68 crore
