Karan Johar's directorial venture Student Of The Year is going great guns at the box-office. The film featuring newcomers Sidharth Malhotra, Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan collected Rs. 28.5 crore over the weekend and has fetched a total of Rs. 32.25 crore so far.

"The movie had a pretty good weekend of 28.5 Crores and now stands at a domestic box office total of 32.25 Crores. For a movie with all newbies this is nothing short of an achievement. Needless to say Karan Johar has struck the right chords yet again," reports koimoi.com.

"Taking a look at the overseas collection, the movie has opened to a fair box office out there with 5.50 Crores as of now," added the website.

The film had opened to positive response- both from critics and audience.



CRITICS' TAKE

KJo's Student Of The Year predictable, but entertaining
Karan Johar’s direction is very good but flounders with the script. Alia is effortless and a natural in her performance. Both Sidharth and Varun are talented, confident and hardly look like first-time actors, say critics. READ REVIEWS

HT's review: Student of the Year

Karan Johar's forte is excess. He creates fantastical worlds brimming with beautiful people and expensive things and yet anchors them in high emotion. His films work as both designer porn and soap opera. ANUPAMA CHOPRA'S TAKE
