Kidnap, Drona disappoint overseas

Kidnap and Drona
The two major releases this Eid, Kidnap and Drona, have proved disappointments, although Kidnap is better in U.K. On face-value, the 5-day weekend figure of Kidnap [£ 2,43,309] may seem impressive, but the fact remains that given the festival period and a long 5-day weekend, everyone was expecting the film to touch approx. £ 3,50,000, but the negative reports have hit the film hard. On the other hand, Drona is a debacle of epic proportions in U.K.

In the U.S. too, Drona hasn't lived up to the humungous hype. Even Kidnap has been slow here.
