Says trade expert Amod Mehra, "The undefeatable combination of Salman Khan and Sooraj Barjatya plus the added bonus of Diwali holidays saw PRDP break all records. On November 12, it was recorded to have the highest one-day collections and in a mere three days went on to cross the Rs 100 crore mark. While the weekend has been tremendous, the acid test is this week. If the film continues in the same manner (with a reasonable drop) then it's set to be a big hit. Even if the collections drop drastically, it has earned enough to be declared a success.”
