Prince has taken a good start all over and in the process has shocked the trade as well as industry in general. This 'almost comic book' actioner is not just Vivek Oberoi's biggest ever opener but also third best for Bollywood this year after Shah Rukh Khan's My Name Is Khan and Salman Khan's Veer. In a season which was reeling with failures and only had an occasional Atithi Tum Kab Jaaoge or Love Sex Aur Dhokha, a medium and low budget film respectively, enjoying a face saving outing at theatres, a big budget movie like Prince showing sparks of resurgence at the box office has been a welcome sign indeed.
Says an obviously excited Vivek Oberoi, "This has been truly humbling. There was a sense of definite positive energy that I could experience before the release of the film. With some terrific promotion preceding the film, I could gauge that there were quite a few waiting to catch Prince in theatres. I am told by trade experts that the film's opening is one of the best in recent times. Great, and now as the figures are coming in, we can see it all by ourselves."
