Aaja Nachle has taken one of the lowest openings for Yash
Raj Films in 2007.
While Ta Ra Rum Pum opened on an average note and
settled down as the week progressed, Jhoom Barabar Jhoom
at least took a terrific initial though it tapered down
subsequently. Chak De India had an alarming start as well
though it reached a high on Friday evening itself and got itself a
Laaga Chunari Mein Daag was average too but started
showing signs of wear and tear with every passing day.
Aaja Nachle has not opened well at all, as indicated by
initial trade reports. If the film doesn't show a dramatic
improvement on the weekdays, it is showing all the signs of an
earlier than expected exit from the theaters.
The reviews have been on the lower side while except for Madhuri
Dixit, who has been hailed as the saving grace of the film by many,
there is nothing much to look for in the film. The film's boring
narrative has been termed as the major reason for the film
garnering not so good word of mouth.
Now it all depends upon hardcore Madhuri fans who may come to
the respite of Aaja Nachle. Reason being that now the film
has only 5 more days to make its presence felt, since Dus
Kahaniyaan and Khoya Khoya Chand open next week that
could well tilt the balance against this Yash Raj film.
