End of the Road for Yash Raj Films?

Oh, how the mighty have fallen. And for Bollywood film movie-maker Yash Raj Films, the numbers expose their shame. With just a few exceptions, Bollywood fans are mostly showing Yash Raj Films the middle finger in a clear signal that they are sick of the garbage dished out by this movie house (please see below table for opening weekend numbers). Barring Dhoom 2 and Fanaa, both the opening gross and the average per screen for the opening weekend of most recent Yash Raj films is pitiful. Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic is the latest crappy

Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic - Bada Box Office Disaster

Yash Raj Films Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic has met with a deservedly disastrous response at the U.S. Box Office. This pitiful apology of a movie has grossed a mere $181,610 for the June 27-29, 2008 opening weekend. Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic opened in 69 theaters in the U.S. and its average per theater worked out to a measly $2,632. What a shame. Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic opened at No-19 at the U.S. box office. Given its pathetic quality, it’s no surprise that Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic has had one of the lowest openings

Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic - Zyada Garbage, Zero Magic

There should be a law to prevent the lobotomized idiots at Yash Raj Films from ever producing movies. From the nincompoops who brought us trash like Tashan,  Aaja Nachle, Laaga Chunari Mein Daag, Jhoom Barabar Jhoom and Ta Ra Rum Pum, comes a new horror show – Zyada Garbage, Zero Magic oops Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic (the correct but inapt name of this piece of trash). A depressingly bad movie, Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic has no raison d’etre except some dodos in Mumbai fancy that if the likes of Ram Gopal Varma can make bad movies, hey, they can make […]

Kuselan – Judas Rajinikanth Spits on Tamil Movie Fans Sitting in the U.S. it’s hard to definitively say how Kamal Haasan’s crappy freakshow Dasavatharam is faring at the box office. But news reports trickling in from India suggest that Dasavatharam is not doing well at the box office. If that is indeed the case, we would not be surprised because the movie is a pathetic fiasco from the so-called Ulaganayagan (Universal Hero). Ha ha, if Kamal Haasan is Ulaganayagan, then we are Alexander the Great. A report from Indiatimes (part of the Times of India group) says that the movie […]

2008 has so far turned out to be an annus horribilis for fans of Tamil and Hindi movies. If you are sick of crappy movies like Dasavatharam, Sarkar Raj, Tashan, Bhoothnath, Kuruvi and Azhagiya Tamil Magan coming out of the Augean pits of Bollywood and Kollywood we don’t blame ya. So are we. Sick to the stomach. The blundering buffoons of Bollywood like Ram Gopal Varma and Abhishek Bachchan and the know-nothing knuckleheads of Kollywood like Kamal Haasan and Vijay have heaped rubbish on the heads of fans this year even as they extort hefty sums in ticket prices. But despair not, […]

Hollywood director Steven Spielberg’s and his fellow principals at Dreamworks SKG are close to a deal with Anil Ambani’s Reliance ADA Group that will provide them with $500 million-$600 million to create a new movie venture, according to Wednesday’s Wall Street Journal (subscription required). Although a new comer to the entertainment business, Reliance ADA Group has quickly built up a significant presence in Bollywood (India’s Mumbai-based film industry and a factory for mostly crappy Hindi movies) through its various ventures like Adlabs Films, Reliance Big Entertainment, BigFlicks, Big Motion Pictures and Big Animation. Reliance ADA Group Chairman Anil Ambani’s wife Tina Munim […]
