The coming Friday will see the release of master director Vishal Bhardwaj's 7 KHOON MAAF along with the Sagar Bellary directed KACCHA LIMBOO and the Divya Dutta and Rajpal Yadav starrer MASTI EXPRESS. The pole position will obviously belong to the Priyanka Chopra starrer 7 KHOON MAAF while KACCHA LIMBOO and MAST EXPRESS will hope for some good word-of-mouth.
7 KHOON MAAF and PATIALA HOUSE
The opening of Nikhil Advani's PATIALA HOUSE was not expected to be big (as we had said last week) but what was witnessed last Friday was well below the mark but somewhat better than Akshay Kumar's last outing, ACTION REPLAYY. The film did show an up tick during the weekend but it was not substantial enough. Despite the fact that the Indian distributors have procured the film at a reasonable 22-23 crores PATIALA HOUSE faces rough weather ahead. The Akshay-Anushka starrer is quite decent abroad but once again below the expectation as it grossed £261,145 from UK and $3,47,261 from US during the opening weekend (11-13 February).
