Bollywood: No Sign of a Come Back

Following a two-month standoff between producer-director and multiplex owners, it was expected that Bollywood movie industry would make a quick come back with a series of movies staking up for release. However, none of recent releases got off to a good start in the box office. In fact, the last two weeks saw a number of box office flops including Subhash Ghai-produced Paying Guests.

No doubt, Paying Guests was expected to be successful in the box office, but the movie fared poorly in almost all parts of India. There is little hope left for the movie as two big releases: New York and Kambakkht Ishq are lining up to get released next week.

Some other movies that failed to make some quick cash in are Let's Dance and Kal Kissne Dekha, which features two debutants in the lead roles. Overall, Bollywood has not got its much-awaited big hit yet, but it is expected that New York and Kambakkht Ishq could live up to the expectation of Bollywood fans.
