The socio-political thriller is likely to retain its presence on the screens despite two biggies “Zanjeer" and "Shuddh Desi Romance", releasing on Friday.

Made at a budget of Rs 50 crore, the film features an ensemble cast of megastar Amitabh Bachchan, Ajay Devgn, Manoj Bajpayee, Arjun Rampal, Kareena Kapoor and Amrita Rao.

Produced by UTV Motion Pictures, the movie collected Rs 11.21 crore on the opening day which is perhaps the biggest opening collection for Jha. It made Rs 13.08 crore and Rs. 14.83 crore on Saturday and Sunday respectively, said a UTV statement.

A Delhi cinema official said that the movie performed well over the weekend. "On Friday, the occupancy was 70 percent, on Saturday 88 percent and on Sunday 84 percent. The film is not just about politics, it has emotions to which people can relate," Puneet Sahay of Spice Cinemas said.
