Folks, I have a question.

Who finances this habitual failure Ram Gopal Varma’s films.

Lately, the bozo has developed the reverse Midas touch.

For a director making movies for nearly a quarter-century, RGV has been most unimpressive at the box office in recent years.

The below box office numbers tell the sorry story of RGV’s decline:

  One Response to “Attacks of 26/11 BO – Nobody Loves RGV”

  1. Maybe because Attacks of 26/11 isn’t a fitting tribute either to the victims or to the brave police officers who died in the line of duty or the NSG.

    The NSG is completely ignored and the movie makes a mockery of the Mumbai Police. Of course, there was sloppiness on their part but the main reason was that they were both inadequately trained to handle such a situation and their firearms were no match to the terrorists’ Ak 47 and hand-grenades.

    IMO, RGV should have depicted the attack in it’s entirety, not just what happened on the night of November 26. As someone who’s watched a lot of Nat Geo documentaries on the incident and read several articles online about this incident, I couldn’t understand why so many key events, like the interception of the telephonic conversation between the terrorists and their handlers, the heroic efforts of members of the public, the NSG operation to bring the ordeal to an end, the attacks on Oberoi and Nariman House etc, were completely omitted from the film.

    RGV’s sloppiness went to such an extent that in one scene, we clearly see a parked Mahindra Xuv 500, that wasn’t even launched at that time. It might be a small thing, but it seriously put me off as this was a real incident that shocked the entire nation and sent out a frightening to message to Indians and everyone across the world.

    But the attacks that are shown are very very intense and sure to reopen old wounds for anyone who’s lost their loved one or lived through the ordeal. The bgm adds to the intensity.

    1. The analogy I see is in the making of Zero Dark Thirty (killing of Osama bin Laden) and the film’s favorable response in the U.S.

    Au contraire, Indian moviegoers for the most part love the feeling of some superstar’s dick lodged deep in their throats. So even assuming RGV’s latest film is extraordinary it won’t find too much favor with the audience.

    2. You write: Mumbai Police….there was sloppiness on their part but the main reason was that they were both inadequately trained to handle such a situation and their firearms were no match to the terrorists’ AK 47 and hand-grenades.

    However, well prepared and equipped a police force is, it’s hard to tackle these kind of suicidal maniacs desperate for the reward of 72 virgins in heaven.

    The fitting response would be to attack the root of this evil – Pakistan – and bomb the hell out of one of their cities in retaliation. Preferably, Karachi!

    But we have a pussy Sikh as the Prime Minister of a Govt that bizarrely thinks Hindu militancy is a bigger threat to the nation! :(
