Bollywood fans in UK too have made chutney of Salman Khan’s latest piece of junk Wanted.
Folks, the Wanted crapshow is a bloody disaster in the UK too, just like in the U.S.
Not just an ordinary disaster, this one.
A mega disaster of Salmanesque proportions.
In one of those Ripley’s Believe It or Not moments, Wanted fared worse than Salman’s previous garbage Yuvvraaj and Heroes.
Bet you are not surprised, right?
After all, this aging, fading, balding Bollywood star is the most lethargic and laziest bloke when it comes to acting these days.
Showing scant respect for the audience, Salman Khan sleepwalks through his movies.
Inevitably, Salman Khan’s movies end up at the bottom of the heap.
If you go by the box office numbers in UK and the U.S., Salman Khan is usually the kiss of death for a Bollywood movie with the diaspora audience.
For the September 18-20, 2009 weekend at the U.K. box office, Salman Khan’s Wanted came in at No-19 with a gross of £69,399.
The below UK box office table speaks loud and clear where Salman Khan stands compared to his Bollywood peers: at the bottom.
As we said the other day:
Salman Khan – the name that spells box office disaster in Bollywood.
Salman Khan – the name that means bad luck in Bollywood.
Salman Khan – the name that turns away audiences in Bollywood.
Salman Khan – the name that heralds crappy movies in Bollywood.
Salman Khan – the name that comes last among the Khans in Bollywood.
Â Time for this bozo to stop his torture of Bollywood fans and retire, eh.
Salman Khan Finished; Wanted, Another BO Disaster
Wanted Review – Unwanted Trash
Yuvvraaj Review – Shitty Copy of Rain Man
God Tussi Great Ho – Outright Theft & Ugly as Hell
While folks in USA and UK have rejected Wanted, those in India seem to have lapped it up.
http://www.boxofficeindia.com has not come up with full numbers yet, but it has observed positive returns for Wanted, and predicted it to be a hit or a superhit (not sure what is the benchmark for a film to be called a hit or superhit).
The thing is, the original product was a proven entertainer, and director Prabhudeva had only to ensure that he doesnt mess it up. Also, no matter how lousily he has acted and how haggard he looks, folks here seem to have liked Salman Khan the action hero.
In fact, his supposedly romantic movies in recent times (God tussi, Yuvvraj, Salam-e-ishq) have all flopped, barring Partner.
For some actors (Sanjeev Kumar, Naseeruddeen Shah, Vishwanath (Nana) Patekar), increasing weight, receding hairline and other damaging effects of Time doesnt matter.
Fortunately Salman Khan is not one of them, else, he could have inflicted a lot more damage.
1. You write: his supposedly romantic movies in recent times … have all flopped, barring Partner.
Partner is stolen shit, an ugly copy of the Hollywood movie Hitch.
2. You write: For some actors … increasing weight, receding hairline and other damaging effects of Time doesnt matter. Fortunately Salman Khan is not one of them, else, he could have inflicted a lot more damage.
Thank heaven for small mercies.
Wanted is a big hit not only in India but in Pakistan and UAE as well it might have bombed in UK and US because it was made for aam jantaa mainly his fans it has broken ghajini’s record when you compare ghajini’s first 5 days with wanted the latter has made 38 crores in 5 days.You should first give the box office collections in India first and then overseas to have some sort of judgement.You can look up ndtv.com and i am also sending this link.
Say what you will but Indians in India are utterly stupid compared to the NRIs.
Wanted is a piece of shit and to think that people are lapping it up there is a reflection of the corrosion in Indian culture or what’s left of it.
The pulse of a nation can be assessed in a myriad different ways. And the so-called success of Wanted in India is a distressing signal.
Are you suffering from some psychological desease. Why dont you change your blog name to hate salman blog. i am not a salman fan either but the way you are writing against salman is some thing which a normal person can not agree. Salman is in film industry for last 20 years and given numorous hits. And tha wanted for which you are writing, dont you know that this film is going to be the biggest hit of 2009. You only saw UK and USA bpx office, is salman a hollywood star. And have you not seen box office report of UAE and Pakistan.
If you are running a blog, be neutral. Dont change it into hate salman blog. Salman has huge fan followin and your constant abusing which is highly objectionable is not going to hamper salman’s reputation.
Against all odds like you Salman withstand successfully.
may god give you some wisdome to run a blog.
1. You write: And have you not seen box office report of UAE and Pakistan
And we have not seen the box office report of Mongolia, Nigeria, Nepal, Bhutan, Kazakhstan too. Bet Wanted is a big shit oops hit there too.
Wanted is a piece of trash unworthy of release in a theatre.
2. You write: Are you suffering from some psychological desease. (sic)
Yes, we are suffering from psychological desease (sic) that rears its head against garbage like Wanted.
3. You write: You only saw UK and USA bpx (sic) office, is salman a hollywood star.
Given his lackadaisical performance in movie after movie these days, Salman Khan is unfit to be a Borivili star.
comments are less in SI ….very few people willing to even discuss a Salman starrer
You are wrong.
You have to take the comments for both U.S. box office and UK box office together: there are 25 comments so far.
Plus another 13 comments for the Wanted review.
In all, we have 38 comments. Hardly a sign that, as you put it, ‘very few people willing to even discuss a Salman starrer.’

Schmuck, this is not a Hindi blog. Use of the occasional Hindi word or sentence is fine provided you include the English translation in parenthesis.
I don’t know why you have enmity against salman khan or against Indians in general.
Your way of approach towards anything and everything written in ur blogs is deeply worrisome and spreading hate is not goin to solve even one of your problems.It applies equally for every indian, pakistani and US citizen.
You can be critical about movies and other issues but please don’t try to use this medium to insult people of a nation and please show some level of self dignity while writing the blog.eg.(usage of terms like piece of shit etc.).You are getting self protrayed through this blog.
If you are intentionally doing this to invite provocative statements from the viewers then I am sorry that you don’t even morally deserve to raise your comments against the people of India,(the so called fools according to you who watch films only for entertainment and not searching for artistic value),culture (which evolved in thousands of years, is not something that gets eroded by a few bollywood movies) and finally ur favourite salman (who with very low acting talent never writes blog to create anger and pain in people who has nothing to do against him)
1. We have no enmity against Salman ‘can’t act’ Khan, Indians, Pakistanis, Bangladeshis, Tibetans, Afghanis or any one else for that matter.
2. You write: Your way of approach towards anything and everything written in ur blogs is deeply worrisome and spreading hate
Are you a complete retard? Oh, no, don’t respond to that question. We already know the answer to that one. Should someone be dumb enough to smash your troglodyte skull (of all the skulls), all we’d find is a cavernous black hole.
Schmuck, providing the U.S. or UK box office report of a trashy Salman Khan movie like Wanted is not spreading hate. Au contraire, it’s doing a service to humanity.
Whatever weed you are smoking, can you pass some of that here. We’d love to be in a similar trance, baby.
3. You write: salman…never…create anger and pain in people who has nothing to do against him
You blithering idiot, we’re still waiting for the final verdict of the Indian courts on this one.
Now, f**k off you merdivorous rat.
