February - March 2007
Box Office Report
A total of 253 films were released in the year 2006 (1st January to 31st December),
out of which only 5 films did very good business in India. They are – Dhoom:2,
Krrish, Lage Raho Munna Bhai, Vivah and Fanaa. Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna, Dhoom:2,
Don, Fanaa, Baabul and Lage Raho Munna Bhai did excellent business in the overseas
Rehguzar proved to be a non-starter. Unns proved to be disastrous. Janani also
was a dull show. Mera Insaaf is bound to cause losses. Vivah is a slow film
but proved to be a sureshot winner. Rajshri Productions Pvt. Ltd.’s Shahid
Kapoor and Amrita Rao starrer has been made nicely by Sooraj Barjatya. Apna
Sapna Money Money , a Mukta Atrs Entertainment film provides good entertainment.
Plus Entertainment Pvt. Ltd.’s Deadline is a good thriller, but needs
proper publicity. Bipasha – The Black Beauty is a waste. Yehi Hai U Turn
will not attract public. Main Hoon Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi has nothing to offer.
Yash Raj Films’ Dhoom:2 scores on account of sex, style, stunts and will
stand out as the winner. Abhi To Raat Hai is absolute disaster. Aaj Ka Laawaris
has nothing to entertain except action sequences. With Luv --- Tumhaara will
fetch no returns at the box office.Ghayal may do some good business in small
centres. Khatarnak Jaanwar will not make any impact at the box office. Nagina – Ek
Vardaan is also a dull fare. Mahaarani will fail at the box office. B.R. Films’ Baabul
has stars like Amitabh Bachchan, Hema Malini, Salman Khan, Rani Mukerji, and
John Abraham, but doesnot have box office attraction. Its collections in India
dropped from the second day itself. But, it did a good business in the U.K.
Karo Ya Maro is a fabulous action film and may do good business at the small
centres. Yash Raj Films’ Kabul Express will do some business. Being a
low budget film, it will not incur losses. Aryan is a dull fare. Dil Se Poochh…Kidhar
Jaana Hai is a very slow movie and will fail at the box office. Bhagam Bhag
, directed by Priyadarsan couldnot sustain and is sure to incur losses. I See
You is a well made film for the classes, but has no future at the box office.
Museum Ke Andar Phans Gaya Sikander did not attract the Indian audience. Inspite
of Rekha’s presence, Kudiyon Ka Hai Zamaana seems to be a misplaced effort
at film making and will prove to be an unmitigated disaster. Game has nothing
to offer. People are now waiting for Saawariya, Salaam-E-Ishq, Tara Rum Pum,
Chuck De India, Jodha Akbar, Namaste London, Guru and Traffic Signal, which
all will be released in 2007.
