Imran Khan’s latest crap-show I Hate Luv Storys has not fared well at the U.S. box office.
For the six-day, July 4 holiday weekend (June 30, 2010-July 5, 2010), I Hate Luv Storys could manage a total gross of just $535,273.
Folks, before you start swooning over the film crossing the half-a-million-dollar mark remember that this number reflects a six-day holiday-weekend unlike a 3-day regular weekend for most movies in the below table.
The movie is yet another stupid Bollywood love story with not much in its favor.
As SearchIndia.com wrote in its review of this crap show:
I Hate Luv Storys hews to the time-honored tradition of hackneyed, jackass Bollywood tales.
Girl (Sonam Kapoor) with a perfect, steady boy-friend believes in Bollywood-style love and romance while the boy (Imran Khan) is adamant that this love thing is all balderdash.
Of course, in true Bollywood ishtyle the girl Simran soon falls in love with our all-love-is-nonsense boy J, who rebuffs her. Before you can say Yeh kya bakwas (what rubbish is this), the all-love-is-nonsense boy falls in love with the girl whose turn it is to spurn him.
All the while, Simran’s besotted boyfriend Raj (the talented Sameer Dattani) is waiting patiently in the background for his girl.
Of course, all’s well in the end for Simran and J (alas, not for the paying audience or for Raj).
Here’s how I Hate Luv Storys fared at the U.S. box office compared to a few prominent Bollywood movies:
