If you look at the opening weekend numbers of Jhoom Barabar Jhoom in the three major markets [U.K., U.S.A., Australia], you'd exclaim, 'Wow!' But when you compare those figures with Yash Raj's successful films, you'd agree that their latest outing has fared below expectations in these markets. Let's dissect the film in the three territories...

  • In U.K., the screen average of Jhoom Barabar Jhoom is lower than Mohabbatein, Mujhse Dosti Karoge, Hum Tum, Veer-Zaara, Salaam Namaste, Fanaa and Dhoom 2. But higher than Ta Ra Rum Pum, Kabul Express, Neal N Nikki, Bunty Aur Babli, Dhoom and Mere Yaar Ki Shaadi Hai.
  • In U.S.A., the screen average of Jhoom Barabar Jhoom is lower than Hum Tum, Veer-Zaara, Bunty Aur Babli, Salaam Namaste, Fanaa and Dhoom 2. But higher than Ta Ra Rum Pum, Kabul Express, Neal N Nikki and Dhoom.
  • In Australia, the screen average of Jhoom Barabar Jhoom is lower than Veer-Zaara, Salaam Namaste, Fanaa and Dhoom 2. But higher than Ta Ra Rum Pum, Neal N Nikki and Bunty Aur Babli.
In a nutshell, given the star cast, producer's brand-value, director's credibility and no opposition, Jhoom Barabar Jhoom should've embarked on one of the biggest openings in Overseas. But...

Super-star Rajnikant's Sivaji - The Boss has fetched one of the biggest starts ever in U.K. In terms of screen average, the Tamil film has not only overtaken Jhoom Barabar Jhoom by leaps and bounds, but also surpassed Hollywood biggies like Fantastic Four, Ocean's Thirteen and Pirates of the Caribbean this weekend. Extra-ordinary!

Weekend: June 15 - 17, 2007.
