ZNMD 2nd Wknd BO – Better Than Singham 1st Wknd
Ajay Devgn’s Singham is a bloody disaster at the box office.
We mean the U.S. box office.
For the July 22-24, 2011 opening weekend, Singham could manage a total gross of a mere $161,063 and an average gross of $3,221.
We’ve seen the Tamil version of Singham and it’s utter garbage.
But given that Indians (in India) love garbage, we wouldn’t be surprised if Singham fares well in India.
Here’s how badly Singham fared at the U.S. box office compared to a few prominent Bollywood films:
Singam Review – Sin to Watch Such Trash
It is supposed to be running successfully in India. The tamil version was one noisy nonsense.
Why are we not surprised? 🙁
After all, there’s a ready market for all kinds of trash in India including films like Ready and (A)Singham.
Yes, it is faring well in India.
After reading your review of the tamil version Singam, i have decided not to even see both these versions!! 🙂
I have found many favourable reviews for the hindi version but how can stolen trash be better than the crap from which they are actually taking the script & saying its a remake!! 😛
A big Thanks to Searchindia.com for the objective & unbiased reviews!! 😀
This is my first comment on this site!! I have been following plenty of your reviews & i like your reviews!! Keep it up guys!!
You write: After reading your review of the tamil version Singam, i have decided not to even see both these versions!!
You are a wise man/woman/thing. 😉
But the Hindi Singham seems to be an authorized remake of the Tamil crap. Most likely it’s paid for and not stolen.
You see, Indians only dare to steal from the distant non-Indians. Ajay Devgn is a slimy rascal who lifts only from foreign films. Ajay’s U Me Aur Hum Review was a Crude Lift of The Notebook. His Hum Kisise Kum Nahin was an awful copy of the Robert De Niro-Billy Crystal comedy Analyze This. But we can’t imagine he didn’t pay the Tamil Singam people for the rights.
hahaha. I m a man 🙂
I said that they have stolen the story!! wasnt saying that related to payment 😛 😀
& you are right.. its sad that people don’t agree with me!! many say that only entertainment is needed & not good films like Mozhi, Anbe Sivam & countless good Hollywood films!!
many prefer those films like Ready, Dostana, Main Hoon Na, Om Shanti Om & so on…
When they are informed that the films are stolen, they say that stealing & copying is not wrong!!
I have seen crappy Ajay Devgan movies like Bhoot, Tarzan the wonder car & so on during my childhood & it makes me feel pathetic to even think about those films & their filthy & shoddy stories!!
1. You write: I said that they have stolen the story!! wasnt saying that related to payment
Sweetie, you can’t divorce theft from payment.
Rohit Shetty purchased the remake rights. So, it’s not stolen.
2. You are right that Indian audiences don’t care about intellectual property rights and all they care about is ‘entertainment’ (whatever that word means).
Yesterday my colleagues were discussing in our tea room bout singham.
“kya zabardast film hai yaar. pakka ajay devgan ko national award milega”
Why stop at National Awards? Surely, he deserves two Oscars at least.
Only Rohit Shitty can spew such trash. I’ve watched about 30 minutes on pirated dvd, and want my money back.
Doing well here, seems like Bollywood is suddenly obsessed with remaking Tamil/Telugu trash.
Get ready for Bodyguard! 🙁
Looking at the hype, Bodyguard will open huge, bollywood trade is expecting it to break Dabangg opening records. Its initial trailer is already talk of the town. So, with all south remakes working in Hindi also, get ready for this trend to continue.
Link to BG official trailer in case you want to see it (I hope you havn’t seen it earlier)
Torture. We mean, the trailer of the Bollywood Murderer turned Bodyguard.
@ SI – Off topic:
Can u please review the Tamil movie ‘Parijatham’ featuring Prithvi Raj, Saranya Bhagyaraj, Bhagyaraj & Prakash Raj??
I found it to be an interesting & a good movie.. can u please review it??
We’ve seen Parijatham.
Prithviraj is a decent actor but as we recollect it the movie itself was no great shakes.
maybe your say…
but it is wayyyy better than most of the unwatchable nightmares that are releasing every friday!! 😛 🙂
Prithviraj is anyday better than many of these actors like simbhu, vishal, ajith, vijay, surya, etc.. 😀
I feel that Malayalam actors have a natural way of acting compared to the Tamil & Hindi actors barring a few…;-)
Malayalam industry has many good actors like Mammotty, Mohan Lal, Dilip, Prithviraj, Jayasurya, etc.. & actresses like Meera Jasmine, Navya Nair, Bhavna, Padmapriya, etc.. 🙂
In order of preference, we like Navya Nair/Meera Jasmine, Padmapriya & Bhavana.
