View Manorama Six Feet Under Movie Stills

View Manorama Six Feet Under Movie Stills

This Friday will see the clash of comedies. While MANORAMA SIX FEET UNDER is a detective/suspense film with humorous touches, DHOL and LOINS OF PUNJAB are both laugh riots. All the three releases are well made products, mainly aiming for the multiplex audience, but the Priyadarshan brand name may just give DHOL the edge and some success. We must add here that the lean month of 'ramzaan', where a sizeable number of cine-goers keep away from the theaters is also taking its toll on the collections of the new and old releases.

Both the releases of last week have had a dismal start at the ticket window. While NANHE JAISALMER had poor start in Bombay, its opening was terrible everywhere, AGGAR had a frighteningly poor start in Bombay and was weak everywhere. Both NANHE JAISALMER and AGGAR are all set to flop at the box-office.
