Folks, are you really surprised that Salman ‘Flop‘ Khan has delivered yet another dud at the box office.
The numbers are out and yes, Salman Khan’s latest crap-show Veer has fared badly at the box office (the U.S. box office that is).
After all, it’s a Salman ‘Flop’ Khan movie. Can it be anything but a dud at the box office.
For the January 22-24, 2010 opening weekend at the U.S. box office, Veer had a total gross of a mere $334,562. Less than junk like Dil Bhole Hadippa and slightly more than garbage like Bhoothnath.
If that’s not a mighty big shame we don’t know what is.
In case you are wondering, Veer had a fairly wide release in the U.S. (92 theatres). But to no avail, right?
Yes, Veer’s average gross of just $3,637 is pathetic.
Guys, if we’ve said it once we’ve said it a thousand times – these days, Salman Khan is the kiss of death for a movie.
Look at the below table to see how badly Salman Khan’s movies have done at the U.S. box office (for your convenience Salman Khan’s movies are marked in red color):
As SearchIndia.com wrote in the review of this junk,
A lengthy bore, Veer is yet another Bollywood movie that ought not to have ever been made. The very idea should have been consigned to the trash-bin.
Alas, tis’ a cruel world we live in and, instead, we’re subjected to a mind-numbing 2 hours and 35-minutes of one of the dullest movies we ever watched on the big screen.
