Box office: 'Singh Is Bliing' is second biggest opener of 2015.

In complete Khiladi aura, Akshay Kumar has wrapped up his year at Box Office with a grasping note. After delivering a complete three back to back hits - 'Baby', 'Gabbar Is Back' and 'Brothers', in that order - the actor raised limits with the latest release, " Singh Is Bliing "

The film has proved out to be the biggest opener so far and also has clinched the second position in the list of 2015' highest weekend grossers with collection of Rs 54.44 crore.

Says trade pundit Amod Mehra, "A big advantage for 'Singh Is Bliing' was that it released on a national holiday (October 2), which preceded the weekend. On Saturday, the collections dropped only to rise the next day. The film now has to maintain the tempo through the weekdays to be declared a hit."

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh is of the opinion that 'Singh Is Bliing' has lived up to its hype. "It had a spectacular start and seems to have struck a chord with those who relish masala movies," he says.

On the other hand, the footfall for Meghna Gulzar's 'Talvar', which clashed with the Akshay-starrer, is slowly but steadily increasing. "The film has won over the critics as well as the gentry. It will easily break even since it has been made on a modest budget (nearly Rs 35 crore)," adds Mehra.
