Why LUCK BY CHANCE didn't take a flying opening?

It doesn't happen with too many movies. However, it appears that it is certainly happening for LUCK BY CHANCE i.e. collections being disheartening for a film which is genuinely quite well made. Zoya Akhtar has made an excellent debut with this Farhan Akhtar, Hrithik Roshan, Rishi Kapoor starrer (yes, these three men are the pillars of this film that is based on Bollywood) but surprisingly the collections over the opening weekend haven't been as per expectations.

The film has seen a good release but the occupancy at theaters has only been in 50% odd range. Now that's surprising considering:

a) The film has fetched excellent reviews all over and class audience is certainly loving it

b) Farhan Akhtar has been accepted as an actor after ROCK ON

c) There isn't much opposition around with VICTORY not finding an audience at all (more about it later) while RAAZ - THE MYSTERY CONTINUES has done most of the business in its first week

So why has LUCK BY CHANCE not taken a flying start?

1. Maybe audience has already shelled out enough money on films like RAAZ - THE MYSTERY CONTINUES, CHANDNI CHOWK TO CHINA, GHAJINI and RAB NE BANA DI JODI.
2. Maybe the title didn't give a clue around what the film was all about.
3. Maybe the music didn't pick up much.
4. Maybe the happenings in the film were too Bollywood centric and hence weren't comprehendible by aam junta.

May be ... may be ... may be!

In scenarios like these, there are quite a few 'may be' statements that come into picture.

One just hopes that the film picks up though. Are there good enough chances for that? Looks like quite a task considering there is DEV D (6th Feb), MERE KHWABON MEIN JO AAYE (6th Feb), BILLU BARBER (13th Feb) and DELHI 6 (20th Feb) in weeks to come. Here is keeping the fingers crossed!
