Bachna Ae Haseeno – Box Office Disaster

 Bachna Ae Haseeno Plunges 61% at Box Office

Yash Raj Films’ latest crap-show Bachna Ae Haseeno has fared badly at the U.S. box office with one of the lowest average gross per theatre for a recent Bollywood movie.

The much hyped movie featuring Ranbir Kapoor, Deepika Padukone, Bipasha Basu and Minissha Lamba brought in a piffling $322,431 in its opening weekend (August 15-17, 2008).

Even Bhoothnath did better than Bachna Ae Haseeno in its opening weekend ($330,246 for Bhoothnath  vs $322,431 for Bachna Ae Haseeno).

Bachna Ae Haseeno came in at No-23 in the U.S. box office ranking for the August 15-17 opening weekend.

This junk movie opened in 71 theatres and had an average gross of $4,541.

Here’s how Bachna Ae Haseeno fared in the U.S. as compared to some other prominent Bollywood movies in the opening weekend:

Bachna Ae Haseeno’s average per theatre of $4,541 is worse than Krazzy 4, Kismat Konnection and even Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na.

As wrote the other day in the review of this piece of garbage a.k.a. Bachna Ae Haseeno:

Two hours and 30 minutes of sheer torture is the heavy price you pay for the sin of daring to watch this mediocre film.

In Bachna Ae Haseeno, Yash Raj set out to create Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge lite but ended up with Bhooth Aur Mein major.

Yash Raj has no one to blame but itself for its current plight.

Producing utter garbage movies lately with stories that are downright inane and stars who can’t act, Yash Raj Films has been treating the audience with contempt.

And guess what, the audience is returning the favor to Yash Raj by showing their middle finger.

For Ranbir Kapoor, Bachna Ae Haseeno is the second disaster in a row. His first film Saawariya was also a dud at the box office.

    Yashraj gets another spat on the face..

    Waiting for SRK magic in Rab ne bana di jodi like he saved YRF with Chakde! India.

    BTW Do we have swades review here.. Should’ve been a hit.. Sadly failing miserably.. Due to all that issues..

    Where’s Anbe sivam and Mullum malarum reviews? I thought you promised us. Please make it fast. love ur reviews. Responds:

    Yes, out of the promised eight in August 2008, we’ve already delivered three. We’ll do Anbe Sivam and Mullum Malarum shortly.

    Netflix had some shipment problems recently that has delayed shipments to its eight million subscribers.

    No, Swades review is not here. We’ve seen the movie. Not great but OK. Gayathri Joshi was good….her retirement was a loss to Bollywood.

    Update: Here’s the Mullum Malarum review.

    Where is rock on!! review? Waiting for ur point of view and i enjoy reading ur reviews. I think it’s a relief from the piece of trash that Yashraj, Ultimate clown Akshay kumar etc are delivering some dirty shows on screen.

    BTW thanks a lot for the mullum malarum review – i own the dvd but just wanted to hear your opinion too. Cheers.

    Personal question: Are u busy nowadays.. Is that why you hadn’t put the review for rock on?? Responds:

    You write above: Are u busy nowadays.. Is that why you hadn’t put the review for rock on??

    We didn’t want to risk the heavy Labor Day long weekend traffic on the highways in the U.S. last Friday.

    Also waiting for Anbesivam review. I felt the movie was quite good and watchable. Responds:

    Minsara Kanavu is next and Anbe Sivam comes following that.

    About swades: I think the it deserved above OK, didn’t it? Ashutosh had improved a lot in recent years but his lates movie Jodhaa akbar was quite mediocre. SRK was great in swades. Gayathri joshi, yep she was simply awesome. Music was a treat. Deserved to be a hit. Responds:

    Yes, Swades was decent on the whole but we wouldn’t put it in the outstanding category.
