Bollywood rocks UK; after ‘Apne’, ‘Naqab’ too in UK top ten



Bollywood seems to be the flavour in the United Kingdom. After the strong bond of love and togetherness between the yesteryears’ matinee idol Dharmendra and his sons Sunny and Bobby Deol swept cinegoers in UK off their feet over the past weeks, it’s the turn of ‘Naqab’, being promoted as the best thriller from the [...]

HR rules in India, Deols are winners abroad



Three films released a week ago with different storylines have grossed impressive collections in India and abroad, spiking the belief that multiple releases on a single day spell doom for one another. Trade magazines had their fingers crossed about the success of the Deol starrer “Apne”, the romantic-thriller “Aap Kaa Surroor” besides “Awarapan”, dealing with [...]

Aap Kaa Surroor has the biggest opening of 2007



Aap ka Surror - The Movie
Himesh Reshammiya’s Aap Kaa Surroor has got the biggest opening of the year at the box office. The critics had panned the film and wrote it off, but the moviegoers had something else in mind. AKS beat down Awarapan and Apne at the box office by getting a bumper opening in the first 3 days. [...]

Small budget films win big at the box office



Bheja Fry
┬áThe small-budget films that Bollywood churned out this year were the ones that raked in the money at the box office, not the much-hyped big releases, the industry’s half yearly report card reveals. The report, which is an eye opener of sorts, says that only six of the 50 films released were declared hits and [...]

Lady luck smiles on ‘Sivaji’, shuns ‘Jhoom Barabar Jhoom’



It was a toss up between “Sivaji: The Boss” and “Jhoom Barabar Jhoom”, and the choice was clear. Bewigged Tamil idol Rajnikant showed he was truly ‘The Boss’ with his film soaring in the first week at the box-office, while the much-awaited multistarrer from the Yash Raj stable fell flat after the initial hype. The [...]

‘Metro’ blazes trail for small films overseas



Small-budget, character-based movies are finally making big bucks in the overseas market and the credit for the trend goes to “Life in a …Metro”. Buoyed by word of mouth, Anurag Basu’s film about flippant relationships in a big city has found takers in the US and Britain. It has earned $144,169 in the US and [...]

Fresh scripts fail to make cash counters ring in 2007



Bollywood’s hope of recreating last year’s box office successes has taken a big blow in 2007, with collections of only $5.8 million in the first six months compared to $135 million in 2006. Unlike 2006, which rode on a slew of hits like “Rang De Basanti”, “Don”, “Dhoom:2″ and “Lage Raho Munnabhai” – three of [...]

Lull before the storm at box office



Imagine being served five varied flavored biryani as you perch on the seat for supper! What does one feast on? That’s the predicament of a viewer when five Hindi films [excludes Hollywood film OCEAN'S 13, which also released simultaneously], hit the screens last Friday — THE TRAIN, MP3, SWAMI, DHARM and RED SWASTIK.

Pass the popcorn, its summer of plenty at box-office



The heat is on. As the mercury soars, Hollywood and Bollywood are trying to make hay with the third instalment of “Pirates of the Caribbean” and Yash Raj Films’ forthcoming release “Jhoom Barabar Jhoom” during the extended holiday period in India before a dull phase sets in. Summer has traditionally been a good season for [...]

‘Metro’ classes, ‘G.B.B.B.’ masses



The response to the two films is diverse. METRO has found patronage at multiplexes, while GOOD BOY BAD BOY found its followers at single screens, dominated by masses. As predicted, the opening of METRO at multiplexes of big cities was better and it picked up during the evening shows. However, the reports are mixed. On [...]
