A string of low-cost films opened this Friday, but none could gather a face-saving opening. A tiny section of the industry was hopeful that Priyadarshan's Bumm Bumm Bole, starring Darsheel Safary after Taare Zameen Par, would at least manage a decent start, but the numbers were extremely disappointing.
A few felt that Kushti might open well at single screens of select circuits, but the numbers of this film were also dull. All eyes are on Kites, the third film in a row (Housefull, Badmaash Company), to lure the audiences back to theatres.
