The 'cocktail' of Deepika, Saif and Diana's talent seems to have wooed the box office. The film is doing well not only in multiplexes, but also in single screens. The movie that made Rs 10.75 crore on its first day has collected Rs 36 crore so far.
"#Cocktail collected approx Rs 36 cr nett in its opening weekend. Breakup:- Fri 11 cr, Sat 12 cr, Sun 13 cr. Extra-ordinary!" trade expert Taran Adarsh tweeted.
Overall weekend collection
"Sunday saw the movie scaling a new height with a 13 crore box office collection. The 1st weekend box office collection of the film now stands at 35.65 crores," informs koimoi.com.
The writing is enhanced by the performances. The big surprise here is Deepika, who moves beyond her usual statuesque mannequin pose and gets into the skin of the emotionally raw and needy poor little rich girl. This is easily her best performance to date. Saif is an old hand at these sorts of roles but here he really ramps up the charm and even pulls off a scene that has him doing a Tom-Cruise-on-a-couch jump as he wears red lipstick and a negligee. Diana is saddled with the most colourless character but she infuses her role with a quiet poise and holds her own," wrote Anupama Chopra, Hindustan Times.
