No Problem and Band Baaja Baraat fail to lure viewers

MUMBAI: Despite a good release period, the run of bad films continues. As the making costs go up, the content and quality seems to deteriorate. While the collections are disheartening, the severe cold wave in the country is expected to further affect the box-office, especially in the night shows.

No Problem, a comedy sans comic actors and funny moments fails miserably. With big names like Anil Kapoor, Sanjay Dutt, Suniel Shetty, Akshaye Khanna, Paresh Rawal and a horde of supporting actors in the caste, none except Rawal is known for his comic timing. Hence the star cast fails the film. Also, what handicaps the film drastically is the lack of gags and funny situations; whatever few are there seem forced.

The public, having sensed what was in the offing decided to skip it as the opening day figures of Rs 40 million prove. The film‘s first weekend intake is Rs 157 million.
Band Baaja Baaraat, a Delhi centric romantic comedy, fails on both counts: romance as well as comedy. A poor musical score adds to the woes. With the opening day collections of Rs 11 million, the film ended the weekend with an inflow of Rs 54 million.
While attributing the failure of No Problem to poor content, Guru Shenoy of MGH Enterprises, a Bombay Circuit distributor and exhibitor calls Band Baaja Baaraat “a cheap comedy that would not appeal to good senses.”

Meanwhile, Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Se has collected less than Rs 40 million in its first week across India, less than half of many films that would collect from a single multiplex. Rakht Charitra 2 went virtually unnoticed while Phass Gaye Re Obama did enjoy favourable reports that have yet to show on its box-office collections.
