There was a clash thirty years back on this day when a veteran actress scored over one of the emerging Khans who would go on to become a huge star in the next decade. The film featuring the Khan was expected to do better but it lost the fight from day one.



The clash was between Dil Hai Ke Manta Nahin which featured Aamir Khan and Phool Bane Angaray which was a heroine orientated film with Rekha. Phool Bane Angaray was not expected to do well as there was a supposed to be a lot of negativity around Rekha and this was the case with the media and within the industry. This was because her husband had commited suicide and the industry and media was putting the blame on her.  But Phool Bane Angaray which released around this time opened to excellent reponse all over and sustained very well.



The first day collections of Phool Bane Angaray were better than Dil Hai Ke Manta Nahin even in Mumbai city though eventually Dil Hai ke Manta Nahin fared better in Mumbai city. The only cities across india where Dil Hai Ke Manta Nahin opened better were Bangalore and Chennai and this was because Phool Bane Angaray opened a week later in Bangalore and almost a month later in Chennai so lower comparable collections were pretty much invetable. Hyderabad was lower on day one but went ahead by the end week.  



In a major metro like Kolkata it was a one horse race as the collections of Phool Bane Angaray were double of Dil Hai Ke Manta Nahin. The main centre of Bihar, Patna did collected more than three times higher and it was a similar story in Indore and Bhopal. In Delhi it was tight as Dil Hai ke Manta Nahin nearly caught Phool Bane Angaray by the end of week one but Phool Bane Angaaray remained 20% ahead despite having cinemas with lower capacities. However if we take the numbers from the whole circuit of Delhi / UP be it day one or final then Phool Bane Angaray won by a distance. 



In the final run Phool Bane Angaray emerged a solid HIT while Dil Hai Ke Manta Nahin was Semi Hit / Average fare mainly due to a pretty good run in Mumbai city. There was a third angle in this clash with Hafta Bandh which had Jackie Shroff as lead but that film managed a good initial in Maharashtra only and that was all it could as it faded fast.
