With films falling like ninepins at the box-office and the ten day old, HAPPY NEW YEAR, continuing to occupy the pole position, there are question marks about the prospects of upcoming ventures.

Even the trade predicts that given the big Saturday and Sunday growth of Shah Rukh Khan's HAPPY NEW YEAR during the second weekend, a similar pattern is expected in the third weekend as well, thanks to the family patronization.


While the trade may be correct to some extent, one just cannot ignore the positive reactions to the promos of Akshay Kumar's, THE SHAUKEENS, amongst the cinema frequenting Gen X. Another plus point of the film is that it appears to be a mass-class fare. With the three lead protagonists, Anupam Kher, Annu Kapoor and Piyush Mishra looking in top ‘perverted' form, especially Annu and an extended cameo by the ‘Khiladi' himself, the film looks set for a good to decent opening. A couple of songs, especially ‘Manali Trance' and ‘Alcoholic' are also getting popular.

Keeping the above mentioned factors in mind one feels that the reasonably budgeted, THE SHAUKEENS, may just surprise at the turnstile.
