Kurbaan has failed to make an impact like it was predicted by Bollywood trade pundits. The movie opened to an average response and to mixed reviews by the critics, some trashing it while others hailing it as “the most powerful film of the year”.
The movie grossed around Rs 4 crore approx on its opening day. Overall its collection was mediocre except in Mumbai territory where it collected around Rs 1.5 crore on its first day. The Saif Ali Khan-Kareena Kapoor starrer couldn’t boost the collections even on Saturday and Sunday. The collections did not show a big leap and the movie just managed a fair business over its first weekend. The collections dropped on Monday taking its four day business to only Rs 15.75 crore approx. Now seeing its performance at the box office, it seems the film can’t even do Rs 30 crore nett business.
However, Hollywood film 2012 has emerged the biggest hit of 2009 in India. The film grossed Rs 25 crore approx over its first week from its English and Hindi versions. The dubbed Tamil and Telugu versions have added further Rs 8-10 crore approx.
Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani again had a wonderful week. The movie garnered around Rs 16 crore nett business. The two-week total is now around Rs 54 crore nett and the film may cross Rs 60 crore nett - a confirmed super hit after Wanted and Love Aaj Kal.
The next change is De Dana Dan and we hope it will rake in the moolah at the box office.
