Ram-Leela gets a lukewarm response, Krissh 3 continues to woo audience at BO

MUMBAI: Alexandra Cinema near Mumbai Central station had a patronage of English movie lovers who did not know English nor was it an era of dubbing English movies. To attract the audience, the cinema management gave all films it released its own version of Hindi titles. Mara Maari Chumma Chati was the title given to the 1966 movie Kiss Kiss Kill Kill (the other examples are Hurr Hurr Darwaza Khula for Horror Of Dracula; Kabhi Garam Garam Kabhi Naram Naram for Blow Hot, Blow Cold). That Mara Maari….. aptly describes Ram-Leela for that is what it is all about; there is no third dimension to the film.

The film released under protests and threats not even opening at some major centres of Gujarat on day one. While the film found an indifferent response at single screens, on the strength of its business at multiplexes, the film has collected a little over Rs 48 crore for its opening weekend. Monday, however, saw a noticeable drop to 50 per cent of its first Saturday business. It is a high priced product and this drop does not augur well for the film.

Rajjo with its unimpressive storyline went unnoticed and failed to find any takers.

Krrish 3 has done a decent second week with no real opposition to share the box office; especially in its second weekend, the collections tapering down thereafter. It collected Rs 43.3 crore taking its two week total to Rs 163.3 crore.

Satya 2 has fared poorly. The film has collected Rs 1.8 crore in its first week.
