Business touched a new low this weekend, what with both Nishabd and Nehlle Pe Dehlla proving debacles in U.K. and Australia. The two biggies have collected dismal collections in U.K. and horrifyingly poor figures in Australia in their opening weekend, proving yet again that it's the content that drives a movie to success, not stars. In the U.S. too, Nishabd has proved a big failure. Meanwhile, Honeymoon Travels Pvt. Ltd. is a surprise hit in U.K. Its second weekend screen average is better than that of Nishabd and Nehlle Pe Dehlla.
