Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey, Phas Gaye Re Obama and Rakht Charitra - 2 - the three releases of last week couldn’t do much to fight the box office blues. As the year 2010 is mostly a year of flops, a lot depends on the December releases.
The biggest film of the week, Ashutosh Gowariker’s Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey disappointed its makers with collection of just Rs 3.50 crore approx from its first weekend. The collections on Saturday and Sunday were better but can’t help the movie from being a sure-shot dud.
Phas Gaye Re Obama, the best of the lot, also had a poor weekend of just Rs 1.25 crore approx. The film did pick up on Saturday, alas, it couldn’t continue its better run at the BO. It can be said that the masses are still not accepting small budget films in a big way.
Rakht Charitra 2 had weekend business of only Rs 2 crore approx. The film is said to be better than Rakta Charitra 1 but its collections are lower. The first was a flop and second is also on its way.
Now all eyes are set on Yashraj Films’ Band Baaja Baaraat which is an entertainer releasing on December 10 along with the madcap comedy No Problem.
