With each passing day, Total Dhamaal is inching towards the Rs 100-crore club.After crossing the Rs 80-crore on in 5 days, Total Dhamaal is refusing to slow down.After a fabulous 4 day collection, the film made Rs 8.75 crore on Tuesday. Wednesday was no less.
The film Rs 7.05 crore, thus taking the total to Rs 88.05 crore.The third instalment in the Dhamaal franchise brings Anil Kapoor and Madhuri Dixit together after 19 years.Anil in a recent interview to an entertainment portal opened up on film’s success. He said, “I’m so thrilled to see how much people are enjoying Total Dhamaal.We set out to make an out-and-out family entertainer and judging by audiences’ response, we seem to be accomplishing that mission. It was such a blast making the film and I’m so happy that the fun has spilled onto the screen and into people’s hearts.”Directed by Indra Kumar, Total Dhamaal also stars Riteish Deshmukh, Johnny Lever, Arshad Warsi, Jaaved Jaaferi, Boman Irani, Sanjay Mishra and Esha Gupta in key roles.The film tells the tale of ten people, rushing to the Janakpur zoo to look for Rs 50 crore worth of booty.
India Today reviewer Lakshana Palat gave the film 2 stars out of 5 and said, “The little respite in this adventure-comedy is the pairing of Anil Kapoor and Madhuri Dixit, who prove that they still have the same impeccable chemistry and partnership almost two decades later. While Ajay Devgn gives a fair performance with his poorly written character and punches, it’s surprisingly the otherwise fantastic Sanjay Mishra who is a letdown.
Overall, the film fails with its comedy and punch-lines and leaves you with a headache.”

The Indian Express critic Shubhra Gupta gave one-and-a-half stars to Total Dhamaal and mentioned in her review, Brainless comedies can be a lot of fun (brain, stop smirking), but they need to be written with smarts. Here, the CGI animals (the climactic chunk of the film is set in a zoo) have more effect than the humans.
A rhino’s horn becomes a pointed spear for falling backsides. A chimp and an elephant are used to give us lessons on kindness.
And a roaring tiger becomes the emblem of Gujju pride, with a character saying: a Gandhi chased the Brits away, and the one we have now will conquer all. Clap clap.Pandering to the powers that be? Oh, fully. AdvertisingThis weekend, Total Dhamaal will witness some competition as Luka Chuppi and Sonchiriya release on March 1.0

‘Kesari’ piques interest in Battle of Saragarhi

New Delhi, Feb 23 (IANS) With over 20 million views in 24 hours since its release, the trailer of Akshay Kumar’s “Kesari” has piqued interest about the historic Battle of Saragarhi of 1897.
The September 12, 1897 battle, in the North-West Frontier Province (now Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan), is distinct as 21 Sikhs of the 36th Sikh Regiment (now the 4th Battalion of the Sikh Regiment) of British India, defended an army post against more than 10,000 Afghan and Orakzai tribesmen.The British government had conferred on the martyred soldiers of the 36th Sikhs its highest battle honour of ‘Indian Order of Merit Grade II’.This history has been written about in several books, including in one documentation by Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh.
The story of valour and patriotism has now found takers in the world of showbiz.”Kesari”, which comes out on March 21, was preceded by “21 Sarfarosh: Saragarhi 1897″, a series from Abhimanyu Singh’s Contiloe Pictures, which specialises in historical dramas.The show, streaming on Netflix, has 65 episodes and stars Mohit Raina and Mukul Dev in principal roles.”‘Battle of Saragarhi’ is considered as one of the bravest days in Indian history.
It was a pleasure telling a story of such importance and creating something at this scale,” Singh had said earlier.As for “Kesari”, directed by Anurag Singh, it takes the gripping story to an epic scale with Akshay as Ishar Singh, complete with a turban and beard.
It is the film’s patriotic flavour, backed by action sequences and an aggression that Akshay has displayed, that have made the industry sit up and take notice.Film and trade expert Girish Johar told IANS: “It is a story being told at an epic level.The canvas is huge.”It has a possibility of being the highest box office earner for Akshay Kumar.
Also, Akshay Kumar will be seen in an intense, aggressive avatar, fighting, and moreover, fighting for the country.”Plus, the film has the advantage of releasing on the Holi weekend.Two other Hindi films on the Battle of Saragarhi were in the pipeline, but they have been shelved.Ajay Devgn was making “Son Of Sardaar: The Battle of Saragarhi”, a project he had announced in 2016, an there was another movie by Rajkumar Santoshi, “Battle Of Saragarhi”, starring Randeep Hooda.
