You are correct. Wikipedia says that upon release, the film broke all
opening box office records in India. It was the highest-grossing film in
its opening weekend in India and has the highest opening day collections
for a Bollywood film. It also has the record for highest net collections in
the first week for a Bollywood film. Within 10 days of its release, the
film crossed the [image: INR]1 billion mark in India and became the first
film of 2009 to do so. The film also created a new box office record for a
release in the last quarter of a year (October to December), breaking the
previous record set by *Ghajini*. It is also the highest-grossing film to
be released in the second half of the year (July to December), breaking the
previous record also held by *Ghajini*.
This film is loosely based on the first novel of Indian novelist Chetan
Bhagat " Five Point Some One - what not to do in IIT". In original novel it
is an IIT (Indian Institute of Technology) where story is unfolding and
which could be said to be the Indian equivalent of MIT and fits to
your description, although there are many IITs in India. But the Imperial
College of Engineering (ICE) in the film is a fictitious entity.
A good introduction, indeed, with high hope for India.
