Will The First Quarter Of 2012 Disappoint?
Last year, we had about 30 films crossing the average line and proving either successful, earners, hits, super-hits or blockbusters. View full list here. Thirty-odd films in 12 months gives us an average of 2.5 films every month. The average of last year has been vitiated in the new year’s first month itself! An analytical glance at the list of forthcoming releases in the next two months does not inspire one’s confidence to make one believe that things will be very different from what they have been so far this year. No doubt, any film can ultimately spring a surprise and prove a box-office bonanza but there is something called hype, expectation, buzz etc. If what is feared comes true, the first quarter of the new year may turn out to be just a quarter as good as the first three months of 2011.
