Critical response[edit]

  • Trim some of the quotes and explain the critics's opinion of the Soundtrack album. Can you do this for IBNLive and Rediff.com? For Rediff.com, it sounds as if it is focusing only on SPB's song. It is best if you rewrite Rediff.com's statement. — Ssven2 speak 2 me 06:26, 30 January 2015 (UTC)

Box office[edit]

  • Nothing wrong here. Use the INR template, not the INRConvert one as Rupee value changes. — Ssven2 speak 2 me 06:32, 30 January 2015 (UTC)
I'm not sure as to how to use that. INRConvert lists a of params but INR has no parameter values. Maybe if you could just help? EthicallyYours! 12:55, 30 January 2015 (UTC)
For example, the line "The film collected 292.50 million (US$4.6 million) on its opening day" Can be written as "The film collected 292.5 million on its opening day". I have done it for you. Do the same for all the INRConvert templates. — Ssven2 speak 2 me 15:32, 30 January 2015 (UTC)
@Ssven2: I don't see any apparent need to change them. It's the US $ values that may change (and that's better); the INR value remains constant, as provided from the markup. EthicallyYours! 16:07, 30 January 2015 (UTC)
