There were two significant Bollywood films which were released today in the past years – Saif Ali Khan, Deepika Padukone and Rishi Kapoor starrer Love Aaj Kal and Ajay Devgn, Tabu and Shriya Saran starrer Drishyam. Let us check how the films fared at the box office.
Love Aaj Kal (2009)
While most of the love stories begin when a boy meet a girl but Love Aaj Kal started with a break up between Jai (Saif Ali Khan) and Meera (Deepika Padukone) as both of them wanted to focus on their respective career. As the story focuses on how love was celebrated in the beautiful flashback story brilliantly narrated by Rishi Kapoor, Imtiaz Ali successfully compares how the process of love has changed over the years.
There is a moment in the film when Saif Ali Khan (Young Veer Singh) runs on the platform to see Harleen Kaur which takes your breath away. This scene will just make you want to stop the time and fall in love.
The romantic drama opened to a fabulous start all over India and ended its theater run with Rs 67 crore against a budget of Rs 50 crore and turned out to be “Hit” at the box office.

Remake of Malayalam film of same name, Drishyam was probably the best suspense thriller ever made in India. The story of “How far would you go to save your family”, Drishyam was a taut thriller that will keep you on the edge of seat without giving a chance to blink your eyes.
Do yourself a favor, watch Drishyam for its fast-paced, smart and intellectual plot. Though Drishyam opened to a very slow response, it stayed afloat at the ticket window, minting a staggering Rs 70 crore (approx) against a budget of Rs 62 crore, turning out to be a “Hit” at the box office.
