DELHI 6 has flopped.

After an ordinary opening weekend, the film continued to see a steady fall during the remainder of the week. The film has netted just a little above 20 crores in the first week which is quite a low number considering it's huge release.

A pretentious film, it's fall was imminent if reactions after the film's premier itself were any indications. In the name of a metaphor (Kaala Bandar), the film only became an indulging exercise that neither turned out to be enlightening nor entertaining. Result was a rapid fall in interest amongst the audience that told the tale as the week progressed.

CHECK OUT: DELHI 6 grosses more than 33 crores worldwide!

With hardly much expected from the second week of the film as well in spite of zero competition on it's way (due to KISSE PYAAR KAROON and SIDDHARTH being the only other releases of the week), DELHI 6 is all set to have a further fall in the second week. Looking at folding up in the vicinity of 30 crores, the film is all set to be third big film in last one year to be labeled as a flop in spite of collections reading 30 crores plus. Other honorable mentions in '30 Crore Flop Club' are CHANDNI CHOWK TO CHINA and TASHAN, both of which starred Akshay Kumar.

The film may not impact Abhishek Bachchan much since he has a lot to look forward to in the remainder of the year. Moreover, his career has typically seen a flip-flop of this kind (a flop followed by a hit followed by a flop and so on). Earlier this was seen in 2008 (SARKAR RAJ - Above average, DRONA - DISASTER, DOSTANA - HIT) and now with 2009 beginning on a poor note for him, there could be hopes of a better year ahead.

The biggest loss though would be for Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra who has now given a flop each with Amitabh Bachchan (AKS) and Abhishek. With DELHI 6 hardly resulting in much appreciation gain for Mehra, it would be interesting to see the next project that he kick starts and it's starcast.
