As many as five films release this weekend and none is expected to do any wonders whatsoever at the box office. Badlapur Boys, Life Mein Twist Hai, LUV….. Phir Kabhie, Main Aur Mr. Riight and Room – The Mystery are the new arrivals and they all come in just a week before PK hurricane strikes.
Amongst these films, Main Aur Mr. Riight has still seen some visibility due to the presence of Shenaz Treasuryvala and TV star Barun Sobti. However, the promotion hasn’t been optimal, though the subject did come with decent ammunition to find some views. As for the other four releases, there is hardly anything to differentiate one from another as each of these is a low/controlled budget film with no known faces whatsoever.
All of this means that yet another dull week awaits Bollywood. With industry waiting with bated breath to find audience footfalls in theaters, guess the dull run will continue for another week unless one of the new films springs a pleasant surprise in a quick-fire manner.
