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 second weekend.
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."
