Acclaimed movies snubbed at boxoffice
By Priyanka Khanna, IANS
Though "Yuva" and "Phir Milenge" were critically acclaimed, they were snubbed at the turnstiles and brought to light the dichotomy facing the cinema churned out of Mumbai-based studios. Even as the industry acknowledges that it needs to break fresh ground, its messages to those who dare to depart is that you do so at your own peril, say trade observers.
Among the notable releases this year, Mani Ratnam's "Yuva", Govind Nihalani's "Dev", Vishal Bhardwaj's "Maqbool", Sriram Raghavan's "Ek Hasina Thi" and Shimit Amin's "Ab Tak Chappan" could have pushed the envelop but were not seen by many.
