Just last month the industry was in a state of shock as the very expensive and lavishly mounted Hrithik Roshan and Barbara Mori starrer, KITES, turned out to be a big setback and a huge loser for Big Pictures. But just a couple of weeks later Prakash Jha's RAAJNEETI came like manna from heaven and turned out to be the biggest grosser and hit of the year.
However the joy was short-lived as once again disaster struck as Mani Ratnam's Abhishek, Aishwarya and Vikram starrer, RAAVAN, another very expensive investment for Big Pictures, turned out to be an even bigger disaster than KITES. In this case the audience rejected the film on the first day itself unlike KITES. But there is light at the end of the tunnel because Karan Johar's Punit Malhotra directed I HATE LUV STORYS is looking set to take a good start, for sure at multiplexes and also at high end cinemas in the cities.
Here's hoping that the Imran-Sonam starrer manages to make the industry smile once again!
