The new releases of the week Arbaaz-Ashmit’s NIRDOSH, Kay Kay Menon’s VODKA DAIRIES as well as MY BIRTHDAY SONG saw a dull start at the ticket window. In fact contrary to expectations it was Samir Soni’s MY BIRTHDAY SONG which saw the best response and may well turn out to be the best over the weekend.
Checking out the three releases of last week Cinestaan Film Company’s KAALAKAANDI, Anurag Kashyap directed MUKKABAAZ and Vikram Bhatt’s 1921 it was the Zareen Khan starrer which surprised with a 12 crore haul! The other two releases were well below the mark with MUKKABAAZ managing 7 crore and Saif Ali Khan’s KAALAKAANDI netting barely 5 crore! It is but obvious that from the three, 1921 is the only film that can harbor some hopes of a recovery.
Concluding with YRF’s Ali Abbas Zafar directed Salman-Katrina starrer TIGER ZINDA HAI the film managed to growl again by adding 11 crore, thus netting 331 crore in four weeks from India and may just about manage to get near to Aamir Khan’s PK(335-336).
