Bollywood ko ek hit de do bhagwan!

With the last month of 2008 providing two back to back All Time Blockbusters in the form of GHAJINI and RAB NE BANA DI JODI, it was expected that the good luck would continue well into the New Year. The optimism was justified with projects like CHANDNI CHOWK TO CHINA, RAAZ -TMC..., LUCK BY CHANCE, BILLU and DELHI 6, all lined up for release one after the other.

CHECK OUT: Bollywood Box-office report of the week

Alas, it was not to be. Year 2009 is about to enter its third month but that elusive clean all -India hit is nowhere in sight. Yes, we are not ignoring RAAZ-THE MYSTERY CONTINUES..., but the Bhatt-Emraan combo has stagnated at a semi-hit status. Bulk of its total came from just its first week run. In fact, RAAZ-TMC... could not even match up to the big success of the same team's JANNAT. The only other success of the year, Anurag Kashyap's DEV D, can at best be termed as an above average fare at multiplexes of some metros. While the poor fate of CHANDNI TO CHINA and LUCK BY CHANCE is crystal clear, the remaining two biggies, BILLU and DELHI 6, don't appear to be creating any wonders, and may at best be below average to average fares. And that too after accounting for the non-theatrical rights!

At the same point of time last year, there was already a big banner hit in the form of UTV's Hrithik Roshan-Aishwarya Rai starrer, JODHAA AKBAR and a surprise success in MITHYA. But the barren 2009 may well have to be content with its dismal run for another couple of months as no real biggie is listed for either March or April. The reason is obviously the IPL Twenty20 and the board exams. For now, we can only hope for some miracle from projects like Madhavan's 13B, Anurag's GULAAL or may be Akshay's TASVEER, that too, if it releases in April.
