With the single screen theatres in Maharashtra going on a week-long strike from March 25th, and the drought like situation at the box-office because of very few big releases since Tanu Weds Manu, there is only bad news to be found at the box-office windows. All eyes are now set on April 1st, when FALTU and Game release.
Box-Office Update (Films Released on March 25)
Monica, released on March 25th, is a dull show and will not be able to prove itself at the ticket windows. The film will prove to be a resounding flop! Happy Husbands faces truly unhappy box-office prospects because it entertains neither husbands nor wives – nor any class of audience, for that matter!
In the English releases of last week, Life Goes On is a well-made film but not of the kind which can work at the box-office. Commercially, it will spell disaster. Sucker Punch (also released in Hindi dubbed version) will interest only fans of action films. In spite of the sexy actors and flashy fight sequences, the film will fare poorly at the box-office.
Last week’s releases, My Target I.A.S. and Ong Bak 3 (English dubbed) did poorly at the box-office.
