Hooray, Barfi Crushes Heroine at U.S. BO

Yaahooo, SI is celebrating.

Baby, it’s gonna be Scotch tonight!

The Ranbir Kapoor starrer Barfi has crushed skin-show queen Kareena Kapoor’s third rate desi porn Heroine at the U.S. box office.

Boy, am I glad.

The good times, they are a rollin, baby! πŸ˜‰

They are a rollin!

SI Celebrates Heroine Poor Show - Β© SearchIndia.comCheers, Baby!

For the September 21-23, 2012 opening weekend, Heroine grossed $389,901 at the box office with an average gross of $3,420.

Given the enormous hype behind this crappy desi porn movie, I’d say its box office performance is below average.

Continuing its strong run, Barfi grossed $643,260 in its second weekend with an average gross of $4,948.

Well, Ranbir Kapoor is a million times better at the acting thing compared to his skin-showing cousin Kareena Kapoor.

Here’s how Heroine fared compared to a few prominent Bollywood films in the opening weekend at the U.S. box office:

    How do you drink your Scotch?

    Usually with two cubes of ice and Steve Jobs’ creations for company. πŸ˜‰

    Hey SI, offtopic:

    Do you have a Book Club suggestion page in here?

    I have previously enjoyed your suggested reading, ex: Freedom, hence checking if you have an updated listing here that I can go to?

    Frustrated that most of my readers can get it up only at the mention of a Salman, Katrina, Surya, Tamanna, Vijay, Priyanka or Kajal, I have cut down on my book reviews.

    As I wrote in my review of Freedom, “But talking to all ye desi dickheads about a classic work like Jonathan Franzen’s Freedom is akin to flinging pearls before the proverbial swine.”

    You’re obviously one of the rare exceptions that still delights in curling up with a good book.

    Sweetie, please find below a few recommendations.

    They are a mix of new and old publications and for variety I’ve included books from different genre – Free Will by Sam Harris, Playland by John Gregory Dunne, Heyday by Kurt Andersen, Lolita (an eternal favorite for the great prose) by Vladimir Nabokov, A Short History of Decay by E.M.Cioran and The Cost of Hope by Amanda Bennett.

    That should keep you bizee for a while.

    I’m glad you liked Freedom. I have a feeling these old eyes stumbled upon the author Jonathan Franzen in Midtown Manhattan some time back.

    BTW, J.K.Rowling’s first ‘Adult’ book The Casual Vacancy has been thoroughly buggered by the NYThttp://www.nytimes.com/2012/09/27/books/book-review-the-casual-vacancy-by-j-k-rowling.html

    yay, that sure should keep me busy for some time now:)

    oh, it is was such a joy to read Freedom, totally ENJOYED reading it, thank you for the lovely suggestion!

    I liked Franzen so much that I picked “How to be Alone” and “Corrections” too. But, Freedom stood out for me.

    Recently read Fifty Shades trilogy (finally wanted to check out what’s all the noise about), it is such so unreal to say the least, but did enjoy parts of the book. What did you think about it?

    SearchIndia.com Responds:

    Two months back, SI’s most avid commenter mentioned Fifty Shades of Grey.

    I checked out the Wiki, reviews etc and it seemed like the book was painted in various hues of trash. Gave it the pass.

    Hey SI, I completed reading Lolita, and what a book! I am so impressed by its sophesticated prose, sometimes so sophesticated for my standard that I got lost on the form than on the content and had to go back to read through concentrating on the plot.

    I am not even sure I can use the word impressed here becuase that would put me in a place where in I seemed to have understood every detail the writer has presented to the reader.

    I would be lying if I said the subject of the novel did not startle me and all fell into place by reading the ‘Afterword’

    Thanks for the suggestion!

    Nabokov’s feat is all the more impressive considering he was not a native English speaker.

    As you might have guessed, he was Russian and migrated to the West just after the 1917 Revolution.
