The ‘Cocktail‘ of Deepika, Saif and Diana‘s talent seems to have wooed the box office. The film is doing well not only in multiplexes, but also in single screens. The movie that made Rs. 10.75 crore on its first day has collected Rs. 36 crore so far.
Cocktail collected approx Rs. 36 crore in its opening weekend. Cocktail made a decent 10.75 crores on its first day at the Indian box-office. It was amazing to see North Indian’s states occupied about 90-100% on its 1st day. The 1st day collections were mainly from urban multiplexes but as the weekend dawned the movie got a stronger hold on single screen theaters as well. The movie has business of 42 crore all over the world.
The writing is enhanced by the performances. The big surprise here is Deepika, who moves beyond her usual statuesque mannequin pose and gets into the skin of the emotionally raw and needy poor little rich girl. This is easily her best performance to date. Saif is an old hand at these sorts of roles but here he really ramps up the charm and even pulls off a scene that has him doing a Tom-Cruise-on-a-couch jump as he wears red lipstick and a negligee. Diana is saddled with the most colorless character but she infuses her role with a quiet poise and holds her own.
