Luck By Chance | Victory |
Movie Stills | Farhan Akhtar
The two new releases, Luck By Chance and Victory,
had a slow start on Friday in India. What comes as a surprise is
the fact that the two films were well-publicized prior to their
release. Luck By Chance started on a 25% - 30% note at
plexes, while Victory was 10% to 20% at several screens.
Luck By Chance has an advantage of a strong word of
mouth and glowing reviews by the English media in India, which
should help the film consolidate its position over the weekend. The
exhibitors are hopeful that the business should pick up from Friday
Victory isn't carrying positive reports and the word of
mouth is strictly average/below average. Also, the reviews are far
from flattering and that makes its survival chances remote, unless
a miracle occurs.
