UK Moviegoers Pee on Amitabh Bachchan, Again

As best as we can tell, Amitabh Bachchan doesn’t look like a fire hydrant, a tree or a public urinal.

Or, does he?

Like dogs lifting their hind legs and letting go on a fire hydrant, UK moviegoers seem to have a Pavlovian urge to unzip and empty their fire-hoses on Amitabh Bachchan films these days.

It’s happening again and again and again.

Perhaps, that’s the audience’s way of telling Amitabh Bachchan in not so subtle a manner – time to pack up and move on, wig wallah.

This time, Amitabh Bachchan’s shame and disaster is Teen Patti.

For the February 26-28, 2010 opening weekend at the UK box office, Teen Patti has had a miserable run with a total gross of just £15,368 and average gross of a pitiful £768.

We can’t think of any other Indian movie with a lower average gross. Can you?

Even Tamil movies like Sathyam and Peranmai featuring no-name fellas have had higher average gross than Teen Patti.

Here’s a look at how Teen Patti and a few other Amitabh Bachchan movies have fared at the U.K. box office lately vis-a-vis some prominent Bollywood films:

    I think you have some fetish of Pee. U like when people Pee on others…I thought Teen Patti was a decent movie….you should see it urself before commenting on it….figures are not everything….Movies like A wednesday, Rann did poorly in theaters yet they were good movies…. Responds:

    Leaving aside your Bachchan-alia, you’d be doing everyone a favor if you addressed why moviegoers’ bladders keep acting up when this budda wig-wallah’s films are released.

    Average gross of $768? Hell, even Renjitha would do better! 😉
