Jai Ho Box Office – Deliciously Miserable

Inshallah, Jai Ho will be the beginning of the end for Salman Khan.

One of the silliest Bollywood movies in recent times, Jai Ho opened to a lukewarm response in the U.S.

Part of the reason could be the lousy weather in the Northeast but I think a more likely reason is that desis in the U.S. are getting sick of the garbage Salman Khan shovels at them with monotonous frequency.

For the opening January 24-26, 2014 weekend in the U.S., Jai Ho grossed $840,506 from 195 screens.

Average gross per screen for Jai Ho was $4,310, the lowest after Veer (2010).

Here’s how Jai Ho fared at the U.S. box office compared to a few prominent Bollywood films:

Jai Ho’s miserable performance at the U.S. box office is the lowest for a Salman Khan movie in recent years! 🙂

One can only pray that this trend continues and heralds the long overdue end of Salman Khan’s reign in Bollywood.

    I don’t see film as flop, still masses support him. While I have avoided movie deliberately, Poor are thronging ti watch movie.

    Also ticket prices in India were lower compared to likes of dhoom3, Chennai express; which means there won’t be huge collections in India, yet the movie will do well and can be classified as a hit.

    Pathetic Salman, has calculatedly personified himself as “Savior of Masses” and “Anti Rich, Robinhood ” type of character in minds of masses.

    So he can’t be dethroned easily. What you would expect from a country, whose majority of People are oppressed like Slaves, illiterates?

    Don’t worry.

    Rahul Gandhi in his first TV interview yesterday promised to empower women, youngsters and all of India soon.

    Once Indians are empowered, everything will be wonderful and even Bollywood will start producing masterpieces! 😉

    do these numbers have any meaning?

    if no, why are you so elated?

    SearchIndia.com Responds:

    Yes, all numbers have meaning. Even Jeero. 😉

    1. Two thieves Eros Entertainment/Salman Khan took a beating. These days, Indian movies are sold in the U.S. for high rates.

    2. If you accept that in a metaphorical sense Salman Khan is the earthly avatar of Satan, isn’t a blow struck against Satan cause for elation.

    A Dark Night is descending on Salman Khan and, inshallah, the Mumbai beast will soon be completely shrouded in the black cloak of invisibility.

    In a just world it would have happened yesterday but I’m willing to wait till tomorrow to see the specter of rejection haunt the savage.

    Isn’t a new dawn always a glorious sight. 😉

    There are so many such Satans in this world, unfortunately.

    SearchIndia.com Responds:

    Jesus of Nazareth was one. The Roman occupiers (Satans) were many.

    Yet, see how things eventually turned out in Rome! 😉

      That reminds me. What happened to your post on Jesus – “Does it matter if Jesus was a bastard?”

      SearchIndia.com Responds:

      Coming soon.

      I’ve finished reading one book on Christianity and am reading another.

      BTW, it’s possible Jesus’ mother was also raped. Seriously!

    Salman Khan’s career success is a mystery to me.

    He went through phases in the past where several of his movies bombed and then he would bounce back with a hit and may be have a few hits after that followed by some flops again.

    The success or failure of this movie is not going to make much of a difference to this guy’s situation for now.

    Perhaps several flops in a row might do the trick but he always manages to get a hit after a while.

    So don’t write him off.

    Of course he is much older now and Age might accomplish what several flops could not but then look at Rajanikanth and Kamal Hasan, those guys are still going strong.

    1. You write: Salman Khan’s career success is a mystery to me.

    If I take support for savages like Salman Khan as a proxy for Indian attitudes, I see little chance of that shithole nation ever achieving its goal of Shining India.

    One can only beseech the almighty Allah to do the “right” thing vis-a-vis Salman Khan.

    2. I’ve always believed 99% of South Indian movie fans emerged in an unbrained state from the womb!

    No other explanation is possible for the existence of Kollywood, Tollywood, Sandalwood etc.

    Bad as most Bollywood films are, they’re nowhere near as offensive as the Southern crap.
