COFFEE HOUSE and PAL PAL DIL KE SSAAT

COFFEE HOUSE and PAL PAL DIL KE SSAAT


It's a massacre situation out there at the box office. Bollywood has witnessed flops earlier as well but a) the volumes have been a little lesser and b) they are interspersed by at least one average runner a month. However, the state of Bollywood today is unbelievable to say the least. Of course the quality of movies has been terrible but its then audiences too are not even willing to give any chance whatsoever to them which is resulting in a horrible state of affairs.

This is pretty much reflected in the way last week's releases have fared at the box office. EK SE BURE DO, COFFEE HOUSE, PAL PAL DIL KE SSAAT, SCHOOL DAYS and ROYAL UTSAV - each of these six films has struggled to complete a one week run at theaters, hence adding on to the pile of disasters. Collections of most of the films have been so pathetic that numbers read in thousands, let aside lakhs. In fact it appears like quite time has passed by when a film crossed the 1 crore mark at the box office. And to think of it, till about a few months, records were being created for the best first week total (remember SINGH IS KINNG, RAB NE BANA DI JODI and then GHAJINI?).

CHECK OUT: DASHAVATAR & MERI PADOSAN open to terrible response

The downfall of big films started with CHANDNI CHOWK TO CHINA and from there on all biggies like BILLU BARBER, DELHI 6 and most recently 8X10 TASVEER fell flat at the box office. Such was the after effect of these movies that smaller films were also not spared, something which is reflected in six disasters that have been seen in the week gone by.

With this week's releases DASHAVTAR and MERI PADOSAN too failing to find an audience, it is only going to be addition of two more disasters in the Bollywood report card this year.
