Golmaal Again review: Scores well in the first half, then goes downhill

Golmaal Again has been released across 3,500 screen in India, with trade sources pegging the film’s total budget at approximately Rs130 crore (including prints & advertising).

Meanwhile, Aamir Khan's production Secret Superstar, too, enjoyed a fairly decent run during the four-day opening weekend. After an average opening  day collection of Rs4.75 crore nett, Secret Superstar consistently crossed Rs8 crore nett over the next three days. The film bagged Rs8.50 crore nett on Saturday and Sunday, respectively taking its four-day total to Rs30.75 crore nett.

Secret Superstar review: This veiled sensation has something to sing and say

As per trade sources, Secret Superstar is said to have released across 1,600 screens in India and it is made at an estimated budget of Rs20-23 crore (excluding Khan’s fees). Zee Studios holds the worldwide theatrical rights to the film.

The collections are expected to drop on Monday. What will help the two films, though, is that there is no big release on the coming Friday (27 October), so earnings of Golmaal Again and Secret Superstar could rise over the week.
