Box office - 'Khatta Meetha' fails to hit the mark

Opens well, but going down

When an Akshay Kumar starrer releases, footfalls are obviously expected at theatres. After all, he’s the star who promises belly-aching laughs. Alas, there were few to be had from his latest film Khatta Meetha if the critics’ reviews are to go by.

Critics apart, even janta doesn’t seem too gung-ho about the movie. The film, directed by Priyadarshan had a decent opening weekend with a net collection of Rs. 23 crores. But multiplexes witnessed a fall in occupancy from Monday onwards. A not-so-good word of mouth isn’t working in the film’s favour either.

If trade figures are to go by, the film has fared much below Akshay’s last release Housefull which raked in Rs. 31 crores in its opening weekend.

Trade pundits believe the competition Khatta Meetha got from the Hollywood release ‘Salt’ and the already running ‘Inception’ might have dented the movie’s collections. The Christopher Nolan flick has made about Rs 12.50 crores at multiplexes in just ten days.

This Friday would see the release of director Milan Luthria’s crime thriller Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai.
