Action Jackson BO - Chimps Kiss the Dust

Much as I’m convinced that god does not exist, there’s occasional proof that he does. Folks, Action Jackson is a mighty disaster at the U.S. box office. Nothing pleases me more than to see chimps like Ajay Devgn and Prabhu Deva kissing the dust when they put out so trashy a film as Action Jackson. Here are the opening weekend U.S. box office numbers for Action Jackson: Related Posts: Action Jackson Review – Infernal Garbage

Mary Kom - A Dud in Amreeka

Mary Kom has fared poorly in the U.S. The ho-hum box office returns suggests Priyanka Chopra’s career could be in its last innings. For the September 5-7, 2014 opening weekend, Mary Kom could manage only $370,277 at the U.S. box office. That’s pitiful showing for a veteran Bollywood grandma like Priyanka Chopra. Youngsters like Alia Bhatt and Shraddha Kapoor are eating her lunch. Here’s how Mary Kom fared compared to a few prominent Bollywood movies:

Classless Chutiyas Snub Mardaani

No one has ever accused Indians (be they in Mera Bharat Mahaan or in Amreeka) of possessing even a semblance of class. As I’ve said often, the essence of Indians is their Chutiyaness. Nowhere is the Indian Chutiyaness more evident than in their unbounded love for trashy Bollywood movies. Trashier the Indian movie the bigger its box office collections. When that rare good movie like Mardaani hits the screen, Indians collectively raise their middle finger in disapproval. So I’m not surprised that Mardaani has fared poorly at the U.S. box office. For the opening August 22-24, 2014 weekend, Mardaani grossed […]

Singham Returns BO - Fails to Roar in U.S.

After reading with great anguish those endless reports of how [the pathetic piece of shit] Singham Returns has set the Indian box office on fire, I was quite relieved that the junk has not done all that well in the U.S. Some consolation, sweetie! It’d be a travesty of art if garbage like Singham Returns were to do well at the box office. For the opening August 15-17, 2014 weekend, Singham Returns managed only a little over half a million dollars at the U.S. box office. That’s a pitiful figure for a two-decades plus star like Ajay Devgan. Ajay Devgan – […]

Kick US Box Office - Even Alia Bhatt has Bigger Dick than Salman Khan

For all of you who claim Bollywood butcher Salman Khan is a superstar, I have a few questions. * Why has Kick fared worse than the quiz show genius Alia Bhatt’s 2 States (Alia’s third major film)? * Why has Kick come in way lower than Aamir Khan’s Dhoom 3 and Shahrukh Khan’s Chennai Express? * Why has Kick come in significantly lower than Ranveer Singh-Deepika’s Ram Leela? * Why has Kick grossed less than Tollywood nightmare Allu Arjun’s Race Gurram? * Why has Kick fared worse than Tollywood non-actor Nagarjuna’s Manam? If you ask me, Kick has had a […]

Kochadaiiyaan - Conspiracy of Silence

So much ink was spilled on big budget Tamil movie Kochadaiiyaan (Rajinikanth, Deepika Padukone) by fawning scribes and reviewers about how the motion-capture film heralded an epochal moment in Indian movie history. Yet there’s nary a report on how much the Rs 150-crore film lost given its ho-hum response at the box office. I wouldn’t be surprised if Kochadaiiyaan turns out to be the biggest disaster in Indian movie history. Conspiracy of Silence After the endless pre-release hype, a conspiracy of silence clouds Kochadaiiyaan’s losses. Why this strange silence? Simple, kiddo – Because so many people now have egg on their […]
