As the day gets closer, one need not be a Nostradamus to predict that Farah Khan's Christmas bonanza, TEES MAAR KHAN, would indeed see an earth shattering start and that is thanks mainly to one song, "Sheila Ki Jawaani". We are not discounting the other very important factors like the amazing success record of Farah, the scintillating chemistry shared by the lead pair, Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif, who continue to be one of the most loved Bollywood jodi of recent times etc, etc.
We are simply putting up facts based on what the Hindi film audience, especially the 15-30 year brigade (who matter most in making a film a big theatrical hit) feel. The song "Sheila Ki Jawaani" has indeed turned out to be a "Munni Badnaam Hui" in terms of popularity and the youths and the children are simply in love with the song, which has become a rage in quite a short span of time.
This coupled with other factors that we have mentioned above will surely translate into a humongous opening keeping up the track record set by films releasing during Christmas like 3 IDIOTS (2009), GHAJINI (2008) plus WELCOME (which incidentally had Akki-Kat as the lead pair) and TAARE ZAMEEN PAR in 2007.
Let us hope that this indeed comes true as the industry is really reeling from the shock of big films crashing and is in dire need of a huge hit to end the year on a high.
