Here, it is shown the way Punjabis are known for their wholeheartedness. Omi lies about living there in UK by telling them that he is a successful lawyer of London and has a mansion, Ferrari, etc. His cousin looks upto him with lots of respect, his aunt adores him but his grandfather is suspicious of him.

The psychological suspense thriller movie has roped in a total of Rs. 59.6 crores nett at the Indian Box Office in five days. However, the Box Office collection of Talaash in the domestic market had dropped drastically by 55% on the first Monday itself. It further dropped on the next day.

Reema Kagti directorial debut has collected Rs. 14.52 crores on day one, Rs. 16.37 crores on day two, and on day three (Sunday), it collected Rs. 18.1 crore, taking the total weekend collection to Rs. 48.99 crores. On Monday, it roped in Rs 6.74 crores and Rs 5.72 crores on Tuesday. The moment Aamir’s name is attached to the movie; you know it will do well at the Box Office. But ‘Talaash’ have got a low opening by the standards Aamir’s past releases have set.

Though it’s doing well at the box-office, ‘Talaash’ hasn’t managed to live up to the expectations of an Aamir Khan-starrer film. Trade analyst Vikas Mohan says, “The weekend really good for our film, but it not as huge as we thought it could be.”

But, exhibitor-distributor Akshaye Rathi says, “Aamir Khan’s name in opening credits of a film is nothing different from an ISO mark on a can of cola when it comes to the perceptions of critics and a large section of the movie-going audience. Though the promos of the film had indicated that it caters to a relatively niche audience (metros and the multiplexes primarily), it has found a collectible audience in the tier two cities as well.”
