Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi is excellent all over with 23.50 crore nett business in week two taking its two week total to 68 crore nett. The film is doing exceedingly well all over with areas like Delhi and Punjab being rock steady. The film is probably the biggest money spinner ever in terms of profits as Yashraj Films will make a profit in the 50 crore region on the film. BLOCKBUSTER

Jumbo riding on RNBDJ !!

It looks like the film-makers of Jumbo are taking a little help from Shah Rukh Khan to keep the buzz going and also promote their movie which is facing a very tough box-office battle with the Aamir Khan-starrer Ghajini.

Ghajini has already created a lot of buzz with Aamir's new look and its innovative publicity campaigns. The creators of the animated film is coming out with Jumbo merchandise with soft toys of the central characters in the film — one male and a female elephant named Jumbo (voiced by Akshay Kumar) and Sonia (voiced by Lara Dutta) — being called Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi.

This is a clear indication that the film wants to ride on the success of the heart-warming on-screen romantic story of King Khan and Anushka Sharma in the Aditya Chopra-directed film.

Navin Shah, CEO, Percept Picture Company says: "Rab Ni Bana Di Jodi is the flavour of the season and when you see Jumbo, you will realise why we have named the couple after them. You have to see to believe the love, bonding and chemistry that Jumbo and Sonia share with each other thorough out the film. Akshay and Lara are known for their on- screen chemistry; they have brought the same flavour in their respective characters."

A source had earlier tipped us about the development. "Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi has turned out to be a good hit and so the film-makers of Jumbo want to cash in on the talk of the town. They are going all out to keep the buzz going about Jumbo. In any case they have a box office clash with Aamir's film and the opening of Ghajini has been simply amazing.

Why Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi rocks!

From the margins
Abhishek Mande

Checking out everything from the little known to the unknown

Dec 27, 2008

For the last couple of weeks blogposts, reviews and opinion pieces supporting and criticising about Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi have been flooding the virtual space. If the headline of this post hasn't made my stand clear allow me to spell it out – Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi is perhaps one of the finer (if not the finest) films of this year.

People have condemned its lack of screenplay and the inability of Taani to recognise her husband among other things. Then there have been other noble souls who have written how it lacked the trademark gloss and glamour of a Yashraj Film.

Indeed, Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi is no Polish art film. Neither is it a groundbreaking movie about love and life. In fact the song Hum hain raahi pyaar ke seemed like a poorer cousin of OSO's title track and Dhoom Tana and the film could have well been shorter.

But having said that, I would agree with what a senior Hindi-speaking colleague recently said. Rab Ne cannot be judged by 'Lokhandwala* standards'. It is set in the heart of Amritsar, which though not a remote Indian village set-up, does have a culture that is not necessarily as open as Mumbai is.

It is in this culture that Taani – having lost her fianc and her father – finds herself being married off to the much-older and boring Surinder Sahni.

Taani is shown to be a free spirit – we are told that hers is a love marriage. So why then, as my intellectual friends would ask, does she have to obey her father's wishes?

After walking into her new house, she locks herself in the room for an entire day. But the very next day she confronts Suri – significantly not in his room but rather in the open confines of the house – and apologises to him. She confesses that marrying him was entirely her choice and she had no right to behave the way she did.

It is perhaps this one line that did the trick for me. Unintentionally perhaps, it explored the very post-modern concept of the problem of choice.

Thinkers suggest that however hard we may want to believe otherwise, we never really have a choice. Or to rephrase it a little, we are all victims of our choices.

We may not like our jobs or our relationships or the food someone cooks at home for us. Yet we continue to live each day saying to ourselves that it was after all our choice. So when we can forgive ourselves for our choices, why can't we not forgive Taani for hers?

Let us for few minutes agree upon the fact that ALL of Taani's choices – marrying Suri, harbouring feelings for Raj and then turning back to Suri – were made in moments of weakness.

However, what makes Taani the heroine is not that she let her heart rule her head during all those times but rather that she had the spine to stand by her choices and decisions and live with a man she could probably never love.

So in way, Taani is far more progressive than any of us who have criticised her (and her story) for being otherwise.

Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi is far different than any of the other Yash Raj films so far. Being set in Amritsar, there is little or no scope for the usual glamour. The little glam we see is in the female dance instructors who are forever clad in really short hotpants.

Now the dance class in itself becomes a symbol for everything that Mumbai (and YRF films) stands for – sexy, sassy, wild, free… and well glossy!

The moment we step into the dance class, it's a different world – where even Taani dumps her patiala-kurta for a more comfortable figure-hugging costume! But step out and we are back in the small by-lanes with cycle rickshaws, handcarts and loose wires running from the corner of one house to another.

It is this dichotomy that some of us have probably failed to notice. To use a much-abused phrase, we're living in two Indias here – the one that survives on malls, multiplexes and fast foods and the other that is trying hard to get there. We should probably be thankful to be in the privileged part. But should that not be reason enough not to write off the others?

PS: Oh yes, the part about Taani not recognising her husband was according to be the best part of the film. At least Suri had a moustache; Clark Kent didn't have that either. So what's the problem, bhai?

Despite Ghajani mania, Rab Ne scores BIG

December 27th, 2008

Even at the moment RAB NE BANA DI JODI released, it just didn't have to face challenge from nationwide sentiments (post the terror attack) and lack of adequate promotion; it also had to contend with all the buzz surrounding GHAJINI. Frankly, every conversation around the Shah Rukh Khan starer invariably steered towards GHAJINI as well. The two movies were almost Siamese twins.

Still, RNBDJ successfully managed to up the ante for Shah Rukh Khan with the first week collections surpassing those of OM SHANTI OM. While the latter had made 40 crores at the end of Week 1, Adi-SRK combine did better with 41 crores. Now the second week collections of the film are out and they have been highly impressive once again. The fall in collections has been only 50% (some soothsayers were predicting - and even hoping - for a bigger fall, stating that the excellent opening weekend was fluke and only due to Shah Rukh Khan's star power), hence bringing in more than 20 crores (final number would be declared soon), even as Wednesday night and Thursday had GHAJINI written all over them.

Standing at more than 61 crores already, the film is on it's way to be a comfortable 70 crores earner at the least with 75 crores looking feasible as well. However, coming close to 86 crores final total of OM SHANTI OM is virtually impossible, what with GHAJINI being at the top of the wish list for many around.

Coming to the ROI factor, RAB NE BANA DI JODI is still the biggest success ever for Shah Rukh Khan. In fact not just OM SHANTI OM, the film is much bigger than SINGH IS KINNG, WELCOME, DHOOM 2 and GOLMAAL RETURNS, some of the films that have made mega bucks in the recent times. That's because each of these films had cost a lot more and were sold at much bigger prices.

Taking into consideration all the factors that were going against the release of RNBDJ, not to mention the very fact that it hasn't been designed as a quintessential blockbuster and is instead a small-n-simple film, such fabulous performance of RNBDJ is indeed heartening and manages to keep the flag flying high for Shah Rukh Khan. -Joginder Tuteja / Sampurn Media
