First topic message reminder :

Synopsis

Radhe (Salman Khan) is one of the wheels of the mafias, but with a difference. He is a trained street fighter and shooter who is totally fearless. A man who can keep his cool, in a situation where death itself is looking at him in the eye. He is rebellious and loves to defy authority. He cannot think of being in any other position but the leader's, always fighting his way to impossible goals. He works for Ganibhai, the most dreaded Mafioso, but on his own terms.

Mafia Don Ganibhai (Prakash Raj) has a great mind for strategy, which is razor sharp. He stays in a foreign country but comes to India whenever the need arises. He is revered and feared by friends and foes alike. Ganibhai is the worst enemy anyone could wish for. He is vindictive to the point of being sadistic. He will not only destroy his enemy but wipe him off completely.

Radhe is in love with a girl named Jhanvi (Ayesha Takia). They share a strange love hate relationship. Jhanvi tries to change him by imploring him to leave the world of crime, but Radhe, though he loves her, is too hardcore a criminal to adhere to her wishes.

Radhe moves ahead in his criminal world by single handedly eliminating Ganibhai's enemies with his wit, grit and fearless strategy. A time comes when Ganibhai, whom Radhe has never seen arrives in India specially to meet him. He then offers Radhe a job, which Radhe for the first time refuses point blank, in return making Ganibhai his biggest enemy. Then comes the surprise element of the story, a twist that changes the very premise on which the story is based on. A shocking twist that makes Radhe - WANTED by the mafia and by the law.

[Wanted – BollyBusiness Review
•September 19, 2009 • 3 Comments
Wanted : Radhey – Radhey

Finally bollywood finds its new Desi SuperHero Radhey, who don’t have power to fly like fussy Superman, doesn’t possess Spider power, don’t have ‘X” factor, but have ROCK SOLID PUNCH to demolish 10-15 at one go, whose presence even scare his own girlfriend, who don’t listen even himself once committed. Radhey – we HAIL you!!

Audience was dying to watch true action movie which bollywood promises for so many ventures like Singh is king/kambakht ishq/CCTC/Don etc. but viewers always left unsatisfied because they didn’t get what was promised. Bollywood witness last action packed was ‘Gadar’ in 2001, and now after 8 years ‘Wanted’ comes in same league. (However there was one failed attempt in 2005 by RGV in ‘James’).

So get set and ready for whistles and claps, if you don’t know how to whistle than take classes, because you will feel helpless creature who don’t even able to react to the spine thrilling, hair raising act.

Movie is about Style, Power and commitment. This is Radhey(Salman) show all the way, who reinvented himself from tough guy(Tere Naam) to super tough guy nothing less than Super Hero. It was just sheer presence of salman khan which makes most ordinary scenes to most watchable breathless act. He deserves truly standing ovation.

With a wafer thin storyline, keeping audience gluing to screen is tough job handled deftly by director prabhu deva, however sometime you feel overdose of action, but you never mind watching those real hardcore action scenes, which is far better than those animated VFX action scenes. But hold, this thin plot also reveal some suspense in climax. First half of movie was to display that character and power of Radhey, Second half was devoted to transformation and justification of power that Radhey possess.

Sajid/Wajid scores with some fine tunes which in sync with this hardcore masala flick. “Tera hi jalwa” and “Tose pyaar karte” are best ones followed by “Love me, love me” and “Maja le le“. However movie can do better trick without at least two songs in first half.

Cinematography is first rate, and choreography is good enough to make audience dance with rhythm. Dialogues are cleverly written, and smartly delivered by characters.

All in all, Watch this movie if fall in one of these categories, you are Salman khan fan, if you are missing action cinema, if you want to watch Desi Superhero without ‘X’ factor, if you are doing nothing this weekend. But don’t go if you want to spent some intimate time with your girlfriend because crowd around you will not get you intimate and your girlfriend may left you by giving her heart to our Desi Superhero “Radhey”.

[Wanted/Dil Bole Hadippa Friday Numbers
•September 19, 2009
[
Wanted :

Wanted has done approx. 6.25 crore Nett business on Friday. Distribution share of these numbers would be higher because majority of chunk comes from single screen who gives better Distributor share. Single screen contributes 2.5 crore approx. First day distribution share would be approx. 4.1 crore .
Dil Bole Hadippa :

DBH has collected around 4.55 crore on Friday. It is just reverse case of Wanted where majority comes from multiplexes. Single screen contributes around 95 lacs. First day distribution share would be 2.88 crore.

*Note: Precision for these figures is about 85%. In other terms you can say there could be +/- 15% variation in numbers which would be more clear in coming days.

** These figures are based on 65% sample size of multiplexes and 15% sample size of single screens.

** This is efforts towards giving viewer early reporting. Will try to improve the system more precise in future.

[Wanted
Avijit Ghosh , TNN 18 September 2009, 09:30pm IST

Brawn is back. So is Salman Khan. Rattled by a barrage of recent flops (Yuvvraaj, God Tussi Great Ho, Hello, Heroes), the actor appeared in
dozens of television shows in the past few weeks hoping to stay alive in the viewer's mindspace.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Film: Wanted (Action)
Cast: Salman Khan, Ayesha Takia, Vinod Khanna, Prakash Raj, Mahesh Manjrekar
Director: Prabhu Deva
Duration: Two hours and 30 min
Critic's Rating: [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

He even went around a Delhi football stadium waving at crowds. He needn't have. In Wanted, the remake of a superhit Telugu film (also made in Tamil), Salman is like a force of nature. Unstoppable. Unbreakable. Unbeatable. As a trigger-happy criminal, he enthrals. As a deadpan lover, who gets to deliver some of the cleverest lines in recent Bollywood films, he amuses in equal measure. He does what only the most charismatic stars do: make an ordinary frame worth watching by sheer presence.

Salman plays a criminal named Radhey who is willing to kill without fear and without hesitation for money, the sort of guy of whom even the heroine says, "Gundon se zyada mujhe tumse dar lagta hai". The movie is an engrossing yarn of crooked cops, double-crossing villains and a love track - all told at a breathless pace. There's suspense too.

Director Prabhu Deva deftly manages to weave in the smaller narratives without losing control over the main story. Wanted is really about style. Smartly lensed, the movie has riveting fight sequences by action director Vijayan. Shiraj Ahmed's dialogues -- Bahut ghoor raha hai. Apni bahen ki shaadi karaega - are sure to induce plenty of seetis and taalis in single-screen theatres. The movie has some great songs too, including a super duet (Tum jaan jaan kehke meri jaan le gaye) and a track that DJs might adore, Mera hi jalwa. Deva gets uniform good work from the entire supporting cast: villain Prakash Raj makes you laugh without losing his mean streak. And Mahesh Manjrekar is a scene-stealer as the crooked cop.

In the recent past, Bollywood's action heroes seemed to have lost faith in the genre they once excelled in. Guys like Akshay Kumar and Ajay Devgun abandoned their fists of fury and reinvented themselves as lover boys and comics. Other men of meat and muscle, Sunny Deol for instance, went out of the frame because they couldn't adjust to the changing public tastes.

But late last year, the winds of change could be felt as six-pack Aamir Khan's violent Ghajini became a blockbuster. Now with Wanted, the knuckle-crushing action flick roars back in an improved avtaar. In Bollywood, men are back.

Masala entertainer loaded with action
Shama Bhagat

The Asian Age

Wanted

Cast: Salman Khan, Ayesha Takia, Vinod Khanna, Mahesh Manjrekar, Sayaji Shinde, Prakash Raj, Aseem Merchant, Vinod Khanna.

Music: Sajid-Wajid

Background score: Salim-Suleiman

Producers: Sahara One Motion Pictures and S.K. Films

Director: Prabhu Deva

Rating: ****

Finally a film like Wanted has happened to Salman Khan. After a long spate of self-obsessed sagas, Bollywood’s bete noir ends up in a film that makes even his most hardened critic sit up and take notice. Is it his best so far? Highly unlikely. But as an overall package, the film keeps you entertained.

A remake of Pokiri (made in Telugu and Tamil versions), Wanted is a complete masala entertainer loaded with slick action and a sprinkling of comic and romantic moments.

Radhe (Salman), a hardcore gangster is a sharpshooter with a sharper brain. He works for Gani Bhai (Prakash Raj), a dreaded don, but on his own terms. Two hardcore gangs are out to eliminate each other as they fight for land in Mumbai. Police commissioner Ashraf Khan (Govind Namdeo), frustrated over the bloody wars that were painting the city, vows to fight it out till the end. So much for a plot. The film of course would not be able to sustain all that much on Sallu’s brawn, so then enters Jahnvi (Ayesha Takia Azmi). The pretty girl with not much of a role except that of a muse, surprises Radhe by professing her love for him. There too, he is left to fight as Jahnvi ends up falling in inspector Talpade’s (Mahesh Manjrekar) lustful eyes.

The thin storyline in the first half keeps you wondering where the story is headed. The scenes are predictable and so is Salman, who (surprise! surprise!) takes off his shirt! However, the second half completely belongs to him. What works for the film is the overall treatment and its technically sound nature.

The stunts are top-class and in fact make Wanted a good competitor to Ghajini’s bash fest. The climax is sure to receive whistles and claps from those in the Stalls section. Prabhudeva’s directorial debut obviously excels in its choreography as well, considering the man had once danced with the late Michael Jackson. The cinematography is breathtaking and the action thriller is made sharper with its slick editing. The dialogues are loaded with punchlines, typical of a Rajinikanth potboiler. With lines like "Once I have committed myself I don’t listen to anybody — not even myself", Salman plays to the gallery. How much it will work with his fans, is left to be seen.

As for performances, Ayesha is refreshing in her teeny role. After Priyadarshan’s Kanjivaram, Prakash Raj as Gani Bhai has excelled in yet another performance. Mahesh Manjrekar is true to his character and can really make you wince. Vinod Khanna is wasted in the film while Govind Namdeo has churned out a mediocre show. Mahek Chahal does what she does best — radiate oomph in a sexy item number.

Sajid-Wajid’s music is a mixed fare, hardly something you’ll take back from the theatre. At times the songs seem meaningless in the larger interest of the plot. Salim-Sulaiman’s background score, however, enhances the action scenes.

Overall, you’ll love the film if you’re a Salman Khan fan. Leave your brains at home and enjoy the drama. It’s slick and well-paced with the right ingredients, never mind it’s seriously "wanting" in the script department.

**** Excellent

Salman completes masala trilogy after SRK & Aamir
September 20, 2009 4:42:54 PM IST
Joginder Tuteja, Bollywood Trade News Network

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

80s were the times when heroes (in true sense) like Sunny Deol, Mithun Chakraborty and Anil Kapoor ruled. When the sheer purpose of cinema was to get people their 'paisa vasool' moment. When there was no difference between mass and class audience. When there was no apparent categorization of cinema being made for A, B and C centers. When there were no multiplexes. And when the 'bhaav' of popcorn and 'samosa' was same across all theaters.

WANTED belongs to that brand of cinema and it is good to see the Top Khans going back to the cinema of the past and realizing that all said and done, audiences do want some true blue masala entertainers at regular intervals.

2007 - Shahrukh Khan understood this first with OM SHANTI OM.
2008 - Aamir Khan did a follow up act with GHAJINI.
2009 - Salman Khan completes the trilogy with WANTED.

One may argue if WANTED is Salman's career best performance ever (his ANDAZ APNA APNA, HUM AAPKE HAIN KAUN, MAINE PYAAR KIYA, KARAN ARJUN have been masterpieces after all).

Still, on this side of the century, WANTED is the film where Salman has gone all out in at least 'being interested' in the film. At least he is not taking his stardom for granted. At least he is not being careless about his looks. At least he is not letting his own self come in the way of director's vision. And last, but certainly not the least, he is 'not bored'.

Wanted Creates History On Eid


Tuesday 22nd September 2009 09.00 IST

Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network



Wanted created history on Eid by recording the highest collections ever on a Monday. Wanted grossed a huge 7.25 crore nett on Monday which is higher than what Ghajini did on its first Monday. But it must be noted that the Ghajini Monday was not a holiday.



The four day nett business of Wanted is now around 25.25 crore nett and 35 crore nett first week is on the cards and it could even go higher depending what happens today.



Wanted had underperformed in parts over the first two days but its business on Eid holiday Monday means the film is a sure hit and if it can sustain from here on it could emerge a Super Hit or better.[/B]

[Domestic B.O.: 'Wanted' hits a ton
September 23, 2009 - 09:02 IST

First things first! After weeks of non-performance [after KAMINEY and LIFE PARTNER, to be precise], the domestic box-office showed a spurt last weekend. The footfalls at cineplexes/single screens proved that the viewers were starved of entertainment and were awaiting the biggies with bated breath.

The weekend gone by was also an acid test for Salman Khan [WANTED] and Rani Mukheri [DIL BOLE HADIPPA]. The two actors were facing rough weather since the past few months with their past few films failing at the ticket window. Salman can now heave a sigh of relief!

WANTED performed exceptionally well at single screens and some multiplexes on Friday. But the business was not encouraging at certain plexes. The business didn't show a big jump on Saturday, but Sunday was rocking. Monday was terrific [Eid] and so was Tuesday [not a holiday, but Eid festivities continue].

Salman[/B] enjoys tremendous popularity amongst Muslim audience and the extra-ordinary figures on Monday and Tuesday have only strengthened the prospects of this film. Industry experts feel that the first week should end anywhere between Rs. 35 crores to Rs. 38 crores. Wow!

DIL BOLE HADIPPA, on the other hand, had a decent to ordinary weekend. Certain plexes were better [North especially], but the single screens were dull. Shahid Kapoor's KISMAT KONNECTION and KAMINEY had embarked on a superb start at the ticket window, but DIL BOLE HADIPPA didn't. That's because the junta was aware that Rani was in the driver's seat, while Shahid was on the backseat this time.

The reports of DIL BOLE HADIPPA were ordinary as well and that explains why its business never showed a remarkable jump, except on Sunday. Monday was mixed, despite Eid. The advantage with DIL BOLE HADIPPA is its reasonable costing, but, again, it all depends on how it fares in its second weekend.

The theatrical and non-theatrical revenues might be able to see the film to safety. But it's a wait and watch situation right now. One definitely expected much more from Yash Raj, from the business point of view, post RAB NE BANA DI JODI and NEW YORK.

As for WANTED, the film has caught on with the masses big time. But, of course, the second weekend is crucial for this film as well. Fingers crossed!

1st Week Collection Expected to be = 36-38 Crore Nett.

Wanted is continuing with record business on Tuesday which was Bassi Eid. The film collected around 5.75 crore nett on Tuesday which is very similar to the collections of Ghajini on its first Tuesday. Single screens across the country recorded huge business with higher collections than Monday. Multiplexes were around 30% lower than its record Monday.

The five day collections of the film stand at around 31 crore nett and the next two days are expected to add anywhere between 5-7.50 crore nett depending on how it performs as holiday season is over. The first week business should come somewhere in the range of 36-38.50 crore nett which would make it Salman Khan's biggest first week opener and and fifth biggest seven day opening week in history.

'Wanted' scores in Pakistan, UAE
By Taran Adarsh, September 23, 2009 - 08:47 IST

WANTED may have under-performed in U.K. and U.S.A., but the film is faring very well in Pakistan and UAE.

UAE started slowly since its release coincided with the last two days of Ramadan, but the film grossed over 500k Dirhams on Sunday, followed by 600k Dirhams on Monday, making the gross 1.5 million Dirhams. This is a significant gross despite Friday and Saturday being slow with Sunday and Monday being higher than any other previous film.

Pakistan is seeing euphoria like never before. In centres like Gujranwala, where LOVE AAJ KAL did Pak Rs. 7 lakhs in a week, WANTED has done Pak Rs. 4 lakhs in a single day!!! Almost all centres are reporting similar trends in Pakistan.

"We are confident that it will outperform other recent films like LOVE AAJ KAL and KAMBAKKHT ISHQ in Pakistan. The content of this film is tailor-made for Pak audiences, with locals enjoying the action, especially Salman's physique in the film," Pranab Kapadia of Eros has informed this writer.

'But where did Salman ever go?' - Industry reacts on Wanted success Click here to add this article to My Clips

By Joginder Tuteja, September 23, 2009 - 15:27 IST

Salman Khan Wanted is a huge success already and made people stand up and acknowledge Salman Khan's superstardom all over again. One of the rare action films in recent times to enjoy huge critical as well as commercial acclaim, Wanted has now completed a trilogy of sorts for 'masala' films. After Shah Rukh Khan's Om Shanti Om and Aamir Khan's Ghajini, now Salman Khan has scored in a big way with Wanted which has got raw action-n-drama back in vogue.

So is Salman Khan back after a rather poor run with Yuvvraaj and God Tussi Great Ho? Industry doesn't quite believe so. Don't be shocked because as per practically each and every film personality that this writer reached out to, the verdict is common - 'Salman Khan was never gone in the first place. He was, is and always would be a superstar.'

[All listed in alphabetical order]

Abbas, Mustan Abbas (of Abbas Mustan fame)- "He has always been a superstar. Also he can sense a good product from quite some distance. He had faith in Wanted and you have to see the way he went all out during last 45 days. He made sure that his fans and followers know what Wanted was all about and he is going to give them the kind of entertainment they were looking for. I am really happy for him."

Abhishek Kapoor - "Where did he go anyway? Salman is Salman, nothing like him!"

Arbaaz Khan - "Back from where? He didn't go anywhere!"

Celina Jaitly Celina Jaitly - "Salman has always been WANTED. He is the only actor who is the most beloved no matter what. And that's what you call true stardom!"

David Dhawan - "On Monday, you should have tried passing through the road where Salman lives. Taking your car down the road was a challenge in itself, courtesy thousands of people who had assembled near his house to wish him Eid and congratulate him for the success of Wanted. Need I say more?"

Eesha Koppikhar - "You are talking about Salman? Did he go anywhere? He is the quintessential superstar. Wanted is just yet another feather in his cap. Wishing him an 'eid mubarak' and congratulations. Looking forward to his next movie."

Himesh Reshammiya - "Salman Khan was a superstar, is a superstar and will always remain a superstar."

Imtiaz Ali Imtiaz Ali - "Salman never went away. He was always there, and will be. For a long, long time. People will always love him."

Jackie Shroff - "Where did he ever go?"

Jacqueline Fernandes - "Salman never left. He's always been Wanted!"

Ken Ghosh - "Salman had never gone anywhere to be back! He has always had a loyal fan base!"

Madhavan - "Where did Salman go in the first place to be back? He has just climbed much higher."

Milan Luthria - "The charisma of the three Khans - Salman, Shah Rukh and Aamir - has been such over last two decades that you can never ever under-estimate them. It shows with Wanted where Salman Khan announced loud and clear that this was a film audiences had to watch."

Minissha Lamba Minissha Lamba - "Salman was never gone. Wanted only proves that if there is a film that requires a raw action hero, it's only Salman who can make it work."

Neha Dhupia - "I have not seen the film but he looks very very promising in all the three films (Wanted, Main Aurr Mrs. Khanna, London Dreams). I have become a fan once again!"

Neil Nitin Mukesh - "A person needs to go to be back! He has just become even bigger, better and stronger!"

Pritam - "When did he go out to be back? He was, is and will be in mind and heart of everybody!"

Ramesh Taurani - "To use the word 'back' for Salman is totally wrong. In spite of hits and flops, Salman was, is and will always be a huge star. I am really happy for him that Wanted is a huge success. Wishing him many more super hits in the future!"

Riteish Deshmukh - "Salman is a huge star. He is beyond hits and flops."

Sajid Khan - "Back?? Where did he go? He was always here!"

Sanjay Gadhvi - "Where had he gone that he is considered to be back? Salman is the original 'RockStar'. With Wanted, he's just reaffirmed his status as a star who is one of the most popular with the masses."

Sanjay Gupta Sanjay Gupta - "Where did he go? He was always rocking; if not the big screen then he rocked the small screen and continued to rule hearts. And in any case, Salman is the kind of star who's beyond hits and flops."

Sanjay Kapoor - "After Partner, he didn't work in too many films. One can sense when he is excited about a project. He had faith in Wanted and that showed in the way he went all out in promoting the film. Weekend collections as well as Monday have been huge. I am quite confident that Wanted would be the biggest success of Salman's career in recent times and would even cross Partner."

Sonu Sood - "I feel he was always there. May be right films didn't happen. With Wanted he has proved that he is loved by the masses. I am sure he will always rock!"

Suparn Verma - "Where did the superstar go in the first place? The last ten years plus we have had the three Khan superstars rocking our world. Salman was, is and always will be a superstar!"

Tusshar Kapoor - "He had never really gone really!"

Vashu Bhagnani - "As soon as I saw the film, I immediately called up Salman and told him that he had just beaten the competition around him. His lion like walk towards the film's pre-climax still gives me goose bumps. He has shown the world through some extensive marketing and promotion that how he can give a huge charge if he is really-really interested in a film of his."

Vikram Bhatt Vikram Bhatt - "Salman Khan went nowhere!"

Vipul Shah - "The Top-5 actors that we have in the industry today - Shah Rukh, Aamir, Salman, Akshay and Hrithik - are a force. They may get an occasional flop or two but if their upcoming film shows promise, audiences are bound to throng theaters in dozens. It doesn't matter for them if their much moved star has a flop behind him because curiosity of them seeing him in a good film supersedes everything else."

Vivek Agnihotri - "Back? From where? USA ? UK? Did he go anywhere? Is media immigration officer? I think he was always here and shall be there. Rocking. He is the true rockstar."

Zoya Akhtar - "I haven't seen Wanted so can't comment on the film. But as far as I am concerned, he never went anywhere to come back. He is a super star despite his films not because of them!"

Salman's wanted success party tomorrow
Everyone's wanted at Salman's success party tomorrow, except a chosen few...

Salman Khan is in the mood to flex his muscles after the success of Wanted. The actor, along with producer Boney Kapoor, is hosting a huge bash to celebrate the film's tingling box-office collections at a Juhu nightspot.

This will be a show of strength for the actor who divided B-Town after his feud with SRK at his girlfriend, Katrina's birthday party in July 2008.

Who's in, who's not
A source says, "Salman is thrilled with Wanted as it came after a spate of flops. He's keen to have a party inviting many people from the industry. Sallu had invited almost the entire industry to Katrina Kaif's bash last year and everyone had turned up. It's now his turn to see who his real friends are.

Interestingly, Shah Rukh's close friends Karan Johar and Farah Khan are also on his list of invitees. Salman is planning to invite almost everyone - including Sanjay Dutt and Akshay Kumar. Of course, we know that Shah Rukh Khan, the Bachchans and Vivek Oberoi won't be part of the guest list."

Katrina flew in to Mumbai from Bhopal (where she was shooting for Rajniti) to celebrate Eid with Sallu and his family. She is expected to extend her holiday and stay back a day for Khan's party.

Boney, while confirming the party says, "We haven't decided the venue as yet. We will invite those people who have been our support throughout." When asked if they were planning to invite the whole industry, he says, "It depends on the kind of venue we get. If it's a large venue, we will invite as many people as possible."

However, the source insists, "They have already finalised one of the happening nightspots in Juhu. The party is on schedule tomorrow. Salman has personally spoken to the chef and ordered some of his favourite dishes like chicken tikka, tandoori and kebabs. There will also be a lavish spread for those who prefer vegetarian food.

The DJ will play hits from Wanted as well his previous releases." Talking about the food, the source adds, "It will be a daawat for everyone. Salman is calling it a victory bash and will have made-to-order dishes that include lot of barbeques and grilled stuff."

Salman was initially planning to cordon off the sea-facing wooden bar where only he and a few close friends could chill. However, he gave it up after realising that other guests might not like it.

Hit hai
When quizzed about how much Wanted has made at the box office at gross value, Boney says, "I don't discuss gross figures as they are confusing. Wanted is a superhit and the distributors in India should make more than Rs 40 crore after paying for theatres rentals and other overhead charges. While in India, Wanted is one of the three biggest hits in the last three years, in Pakistan, it's the biggest hit amongst all the Hindi films ever released there."

Taran Adarsh's figures on Wanted
WANTED performed exceptionally well at single screens and some multiplexes on Friday. But the business was not encouraging at certain plexes. The business didn't show a big jump on Saturday, but Sunday was rocking. Monday was terrific [Eid] and so was Tuesday [not a holiday, but Eid festivities continue].

Salman enjoys tremendous popularity amongst Muslim audience and the extra-ordinary figures on Monday and Tuesday have only strengthened the prospects of this film. Industry experts feel that the first week should end anywhere between Rs. 35 crores to Rs. 38 crores. Wow!

Wanted Looking Set To Emerge Biggest Hit Of 2009

Thursday 24th September 2009 10.30 IST

Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

Salman Khan's Wanted looks likely to emerge the biggest of 2009 till date. Although it is hard to be 100% sure just yet but the chances look good that it will beat the near 33 crore distributor share of Love Aaj Kal.

Wanted is like a juggernaut at single screens with even house full boards going up on Wednesday. The business in multiplexes has also settled well. This week's major release What's Your Rashee has weak reports and a terrible advance and Dil Bole Hadippa has dropping collections which will leave Wanted a clear run in its second week. Another added advantage is that Monday is a holiday for Dusshera which fill further boost collections.

The Craze Of Wanted

Thursday 24th September 2009 16.30 IST

Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

Wanted is a craze across many centres in the country. The first week business of Wanted in Bihar will be around 1.20 crore nett which will be a new circuit record beating the 1.12 crore nett (8days) of Ghajini. In other small circuits like Assam and Orissa it may also set new highs. In Orissa the film is a rage with collections nearly three times higher than regular big films apart from Ghajini. Many B+C centres in CP Berar, Ci, Rajasthan and Nizam are also showing higher collections than Ghajini.


The craze of the film can be put into perspective with the collections below. Normally a hit film shows 50% of its Friday collections on Wednesday but Wanted is showing similar or even better figures at many centres outside the metroes.


Lucknow

Friday - 6.38 lakhs

Wednesday - 7.66 lakhs



Varanasi


Friday - 2.63 lakhs

Wednesday - 3.07 lakhs


Indore

Friday - 7.55 lakhs

Wednesday - 6.20 lakhs


[B]Lucknow and Varanasi are A grade centres of UP while Indore is an A grade centre of CI. The B and C centres of UP, Bihar, CP Berar, CI, Rajasthan, Nizam, Assam and Orissa are just phenomenal to put it mildly.

Salman Khan sucker for soccer

By: Upala KBR Date: 2009-09-24 Place: Mumbai



Will lead Kolkata's top teams on to the field for a friendly match, as part of Wanted promotions

Salman Khan will be in Kolkata for a friendly match to mingle with the top soccer teams of the city - East Bengal and Mohun Bagan.

It's part of the promotions of Salman-starrer Wanted, that released last week. Producer Boney Kapoor confirms, "Salman will be in Kolkata on September 26 for a friendly soccer match to be played between Kolkata's top teams. It will be called The Wanted Cup and Salman will lead the teams on to the field and will work out
with them."

Of first times
This is also the first time Khan will be in Kolkata during Durga Puja - which is a huge festival there. He is looking forward to the experience. Boney adds, "Salman has a huge fan following in West Bengal. Though he's been there for shootings, this is the first time that he's going to promote a film there. The whole team of Wanted, including Prabhudheva (the film's director) and the cast members, will also be there to cheer the teams."

The match will be held at one of Kolkata's biggest sports stadiums - the Rabindra Sarobar Stadium.

Venue shifted
Initially, the match was to be held in the Salt Lake Stadium but now it has been shifted to the RSS because of security reasons. Salman will be interacting with his fans and the media at the event. Khan had earlier been roped in as the brand ambassador of Indian football by the All India Football Federation to promote the game in the country.

Sallu's fans carry out raids

Hundreds of people draw inspiration from Khan's latest film



Salman Khan in his latest film Wanted has inspired hundreds of people across the country to fight the outlaws.

It seems that after watching Sallu in an episode of TV series CID, his fans have decided to fight film piracy as well and support their favourite star.

In the Southern Film Industry, many fans are known to raid illegal video parlours and places where pirated CDs and DVDs are sold along with the police. This act in fact has helped curb movie piracy down south.

And now, after Salman Khan's Wanted, Bollywood fans have also adopted the same strategy. According to reports, on September 21, right after Khan's film released, his fans from Lokhandwala and Oshiwara in Mumbai along with the Police raided illegal video parlours, ransacked pirated CDs and DVDs and destroyed them.

Looks like Salman has finally helped bring film piracy under control with his charisma.

Salman's WANTED beats Aamir-Asin starrer GHAJINI!


Abid, Bollywood Trade News Network

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
The much hyped Eid battle between Salman Khan's WANTED and the Shahid-Rani starrer, DIL BOLE HADIPPA, is turning out to be quite one-sided in favour of WANTED. In fact WANTED has now started smashing some of the records of the All Time Blockbuster, Aamir Khan's GHAJINI.

This Monday saw WANTED netting around 7.35 crore from India, which is more than the corresponding total of GHAJINI on its first Monday. Not only that, on Tuesday WANTED once again netted around 6 crores, which is just about the same as that of GHAJINI at the same juncture.


Of course the collections of GHAJINI were much higher than WANTED, during the first weekend, but what should be kept in mind is that GHAJINI had released during the Christmas festival and winter vacations, while WANTED released during the lean fasting period of Ramzaan and Navratra. So, the stats cannot be compared.

However one way or the other, we are sure that Aamir Khan will be very happy with his friend's scintillating comeback via WANTED.
