Mumbai: Today, two much-awaited movies The Attacks of
26/11 directed by Ram Gopan Varma and I, Me Aur Main
starring John Abraham in leads, were released. But
both of them have received very cold response at the Indian Box
Office. Trade analysts opine that the poor beginning of these films
will pave the way for Kai Po Che to rock once again in the
The Attacks of 26/11 and I, Me Aur Main are
backed by reputed names/studios and well-known star in the cast.
Besides this, the makers have had huge amount of publicity for this
much-hyped films, prior their release. They were expected to get a
flying start at the domestic Box Office, but surprisingly, they
have got below the mark response across the country.
The Attacks of 26/11, which deals with 2008 Mumbai
terrorists attack, has registered a slightly better response in the
Mumbai circuit, but has had a very dull beginning in
other areas in the morning and matinee shows. Whereas I, Me Aur
Main has got an average footfalls at select multiplexes, but
overall, it has very low occupancy. The evening/night shows are
crucial for these two films.
However, trade expert Taran Adarsh feel that Kai Po Che
would top the collection chart in the second weekend beating the
new releases The Attacks of 26/11 and I, Me Aur
Main. The Bollywood trade analyst writes, "Kai Po Che
is expected to dominate the domestic BO for the second consecutive
weekend, as per early trends."
