Game Box Office – Abhishek ‘Loser’ Bachchan

OMG, we haven’t stopped laughing at the box office numbers of Abhishek Bachchan’s new film Game.

Laughed so much till our sides split. 😉

When Bollywood’s pall-bearer features in a movie, you know the inevitable outcome – A Box Office Disaster.

Here are SI’s three laws of Abhishek Bachchan:

* Another Abhishek Bachchan movie releases. Another Abhishek Bachchan movie gets panned by critics.

* Another Abhishek Bachchan movie releases. Another Abhishek Bachchan movie causes incalculable pain to Bollywood fans.

* Another Abhishek Bachchan movie releases. Another Abhishek Bachchan movie kisses the dust at the box office.

Anyone surprised at the dismal fate of Abhishek Bachchan’s movies?

Speak up, you schmucks. We’re talkin to you.

The box office numbers for Abhishek Bachchan’s new movie Game are out. And they are, oh, so pitiful.

Here’s how Game fared at the U.S. box office compared to some prominent Bollywood films:

    I hold those three laws more than Newtons three laws! Responds:

    At this rate, even the podiyans like Simbhu, Vombhu, Kombhu will overtake Abhishek!

    SI – You are not going to get any respite from laughter after reading this review of a tamil film called Nanjupuram. 😀

    Horrendous and archaic storyline giving unlimited doses of unintended comedy. The film is more poisonous than the venom of the snakes in the film. I had a blast reading that review after lunch. :)) Responds:

    We think the Tamil film industry, like Bollywood, is at crossroads.

    A film that clicks in large cities may not resonate in smaller places. A film that works with the more savvy Facebook/Twitter crowd may not work for the older crowd.

    Our hypothesis is that there’s enormous flux in some parts of Indian society (mainly cities and with the upwardly mobile and geographically mobile) today while other places are moving along at a slower pace.

    In this bewildering ambiance, movie-makers are all sea and don’t know whom to target these days! We think the days when a movie would have a pan-Indian or pan-state appeal are gone. This state of affairs could continue for over a decade resulting in huge losses for some producers/distributors.

    The current uncertain times could be one reason why we’re seeing a spate of remakes in the Indian movie industry lately:

    * Singam (first Tamil) and now Hindi (Ajay Devgn)

    * Bodyguard (originally Malayalam), then Tamil (Kaavalan) and now Hindi (Salman Khan)

    * Ready (first Telugu) and now Hindi (Salman Khan)

    * Three Idiots (first Hindi) and now Tamil (Vijay).

    * Dabbang (first Hindi) and now Tamil.

    * Vedam (first Telugu) and now Tamil (Vaanam).

    BTW, after praising the film the reviewer (above link) gives a Below Average verdict. Strange!

    Another comedy piece to keep the laughter going! Responds:

    Is Vinu’s meant to stop indigestion or what?
