Sujoy Ghosh's Badla released exactly a week ago on March 8 and since then it has been enjoying a good run at the box office. While the film started off on a slow note, it quickly picked up the pace courtesy good word of mouth and ended the opening weekend on a high note. But that's not all! The crime thriller, which stars Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu in the lead, even surpassed the opening weekend collection of Pink and now it has beaten its Week 1 record as well. Guess its all because of Big B and Pannu's jodi creating magic on the big screen once again.
