Release timing

Red Swastik Movie PosterFrom a week packed with five releases on June 8, to just one, Yash Raj films JHOOM BARABAR JHOOM on June 15; if moviegoers were spoilt for a choice a week before last with DHARM, SWAMI, THE TRAIN, MERE PEHLA PEHLA PYAAR and RED SWASTIK, last week was a damp squib with the all style-no substance flick. I wonder if it was a deliberate date chosen to release JBJ knowing there were no other releases or whether other producers shied away in order not to clash with a big banner. Either ways, it has not made much of a difference. Maybe the makers of RED SWASTIK should have chosen June 15, instead of June 8, that way they would have got in the audience by default for want of a better release!
