Hardcore realistic films sans face-value don't find many takers in Overseas. Last week's Traffic Signal [U.K.] and this week's Black Friday [U.S.A.] prove this theory right. Despite tremendous appreciation, Black Friday has failed to generate a decent initial in the U.S. Meanwhile, all eyes are on Eklavya - The Royal Guard, the third biggie of 2007 [after Guru and Salaam-E-Ishq], which is expected to fetch a big start!

Weekend: February 9 - 11, 2007.
