Can it possibly get any worse?
No, No and No.
The Saif Ali Khan-Kareena Kapoor piece of shit Kurbaan has fared worse than one of the worst movies in the annals of Bollywood. Y’all know which one. 😉
Yes, Yes and Yes
Kurbaan has accomplished the seemingly impossible. It has fared worse than Abhishek Bachchan’s Drona in the second week at the U.S. box office.
If we’ve said it once we’ve said it a gazillion times.
Kareena Kapoor is offal as far as acting goes and the kiss of death for movie-lovers.
The offputting Kareena ranks among the baddest of the bad Indian actresses.
In Kurbaan, both Kareena and her beau Saif Ali Khan have taken the paying audience for a ride.
And Bollywood fans have repaid the duo in kind with the pitiful box office numbers providing the best evidence of the comeuppance for the two stars.
What a Shame
In its second weekend at the U.S. box office, Kurbaan grossed $130,885, a 68% drop from the already low opening weekend.
Au contraire, Abhishek Bachchan’s Drona did $147,625 in its second weekend here.
Here’s how Kurbaan fared in its second weekend at the U.S. box office compared to a few other prominent Bollywood movies:
Kurbaan Review – You are the Sacrificial Lamb, Sucker
So,it’s become the worst Flop of the year after Blue and Chandni Chowk To China. 😀
A frigging Disaster.
Although I am happy to see Kurbaan and Saifeena fail, I am not amused that DRONA got a better ROI than Kurbaan.
To put it simply, Kurbaan is a better thrash compared to Drona, maybe it has to do with the fact that with each passing movie, Indian NRIs get wiser and skip films. Atleast, the recent statistics mentioned in your blog seem to say so.
Now, this is out of context: Have you seen the Tamil Film, “Indian” – starring Kamal Haasan, Urmila Mandorakar, directed by Shankar.
If so, what’s your take on it?
Yes, saw Kamal Haasan’s Indian a few years back.
Kinda like Sivaji Ganeshan’s 1970s’ era film Thanga Padakkam, where the father slays the wayward son.
We suppose by Tamil movie standards it’d be considered OK but if pressed we’d say nothing extraordinary.
On a different note.. you seem to bash anything and everything about India and boast this useless country for no (any?) reason. Honestly tell me do you feel home here?
Don’t give some reasons in hi-fi english just because you have mortgage!! Even if you do have some reason, don’t pass on your hatred (and put a P.S “Mera Bharat Mahan” as that adds to the pain) since it doesn’t go as good as your unbiased movie review
1. You write: you seem to bash anything and everything about India
Lie of the day. Lie of the week. Lie of the year. Lie of the decade. Lie of the Century.
Lie of the Millennium.
We love India. We’ve said it a gazillion times…no place like India.
India most definitely has a lot of charm. A non pareil, sui generis land.
Mera Bharat Mahaan. We mean it non-sarcastically this time. Really.
That said, India is also a hell-hole in many respects.
2. You write: you seem to bash anything and everything about India and boast this useless country for no (any?) reason. Honestly tell me do you feel home here?
Yes, we feel very much at home in the U.S.
Unlike many ungrateful Pichchakaran Coolies here, we do not feel the U.S. is ‘a useless country.’
We always tell people that we were Americans before coming to America (tis’ hard to understand that statement but if you think hard you can.)
As with every other country including Incredible India, there are some serious problems here too.
Ultimately, which country one likes to live in is more of an individual preference/choice and of course circumstances/options available.
BTW, we love Incredible India too. 😉
hey, i had no idea Kurbaan was crap….guess i had better not see it then. thanks for the tip, brotha!!
P.S.—-by the way, in replying to the above post, you said you were Americans before coming to America. So tell me, have you never experienced racism, or do you take it in your stride as part of “Amazing America” when someone calls you a “****ing Paki”??? [ 🙁 ]
1. You write: So tell me, have you never experienced racism???
We have experienced racism, sometimes covert and on the rare occasion overt.
2. You write: or do you take it in your stride as part of “Amazing America” when someone calls you a “****ing Paki”
Now if someone were to call us a “****ing Paki” that would get us hopping mad because we are a “****ing Indian.” 😉
Is there any insult worse than being called a “****ing Paki.”
