Read review: Holiday will keep you hooked

The film, starring Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha, opened to good reviews and earned over Rs 40 crore in the first weekend itself. In face of hardly any competition the next week (the only release was Fugly) the film maintained its successful run at the ticket windows.

Directed by AR Murugadoss, the film is a remake of his Southern hit Thupakki.

Salman Khan-starrer Jai Ho (Rs 116 crore) and Alia-Arjun-starrer 2 States (Rs 102 crore) are the other films which entered Rs 100 crore club in 2014. Holiday will soon overtake 2 States' collections.

This is Akshay's third film in the hallowed club after Rowdy Rathore and Housefull 2. Holiday is the 29th movie to join the club. Dhoom 3, Chennai Express, and Krrish 3 are on top of the list.

With Humshakals -- the big Hindi release of the week -- getting negative reviews, will we see Holiday becoming the biggest grosser of the year? We will be watching!
