3 reasons why the new releases nosedived

As expected, none of the five releases of the weekend gone by –MAHARATHI, DIL KABADDI, MEERABAI NOT OUT, OH MY GOD and GUMNAAM – THE MYSTERY – has managed to make an impression at the box office. Opening to a poor response all over, each of the five films has cut a sorry figure though MAHARATHI and DIL KABADDI have still managed to fare marginally better. While the advance booking of all these films has been literally zero, the current booking too isn't much impressive with maximum capacity reported in the range of 20%–30%.

Can one blame the post–terror poor sentiment for an unexciting response towards this film? To an extent yes, but not completely. And there are three reasons for that:
