Movie review: Salman Khan in 'Kick' is 'Unjhelable'
As mentioned in our earlier report, Salman's crackling chemistry with co-star Jacqueline Fernandez besides the catchy music helped 'Kick' emerge as the biggest opener of 2014 with box office collections of Rs 26.40 crore, beating Sallu's previous release 'Jai Ho', which collected Rs 17.55 crore. In fact, 'Kick' has also emerged as the fourth biggest grosser of all time, after Aamir Khan's 'Dhoom 3' (Rs 36.22 crore), Shah Rukh Khan's 'Chennai Express' (Rs 33.12 crpre) and Salman's own 'Ek Tha Tiger' (Rs 32.93 crore), while overshadowing Hrithik Roshan's 'Krrish 3' (Rs 25.50 crore).
Apart from the domestic market, 'Kick' also made a fabulous start abroad, specially in the USA-Canada, UK, Australia and New Zealand markets.
