New releases go downhill while Raajneeti rules

MUMBAI: Seems nothing is going right for Bollywood right now. All the big ticket movies, including Kites and Raavan, bombed.
Last week‘s releases, Krantiveer - The Revolution and Medient International Holdings‘ Mr Singh Mrs Mehta, fared no better at the box-office.

The Mehul Kumar-directed film could not bring any kind of revolution (kranti) at the box-office. It played average at multiplexes but did fair business at single-screens. The film, though, is doing good business in Punjab, UP and Gujarat.
Mr Singh Mrs. Mehta is also having a miserable life in Mumbai, though it is breathing a lot better in Delhi and parts of North India.

All said and done, the dismal failures of Kites and Raavan and the mediocre opening of the new releases has helped Rajneeti. The Prakash Jha directed film is now officially the biggest hit of the year and has achieved a blockbuster status. With more than Rs 850 million in its kitty, the multi-starrer has benefited most out of the debacle of Raavan and is expected to continue its golden run at the box-office in the days to come.

People now await the release of the Imran Khan, Sonam Kapoor starrer I Hate Luv Storys.
