Bollywood film Highway, director Imtiaz Ali’s lift of the two-decade old Hollywood movie The Chase, has fared poorly at the U.S. box office.
For the opening February 21-23, 2014 weekend, Highway could manage a gross of only $286,495.
Highway’s opening weekend performance is pathetic for a Bollywood director of Imtiaz Ali’s stature.
Highway is Imtiaz Ali’s fifth film as director (his earlier films include Socha Na Tha, 2005; Jab We Met, 2007; Love Aaj Kal, 2009; and Rockstar, 2011).
Ali’s last film Rockstar grossed more than double the Highway numbers (Rockstar opening weekend: $612,235) at the U.S. box office.
To Imtiaz’ mortification, Highway has done worse than even the recent Hindi film Hasee Toh Phasee from debutant director Vinil Mathew.
Here’s how Highway fared at the U.S. box office for the opening weekend compared to a few prominent Bollywood films:
Mr. “Imtiaz the plagiazer”‘s previous accomplishments include: 🙁
Love Aaj Kal – remake of Taiwanese film “Three Times”
Jab we met – inspired by “A walk in the clouds”
Rockstar – Copied and inspired from “The Doors”
Socha na tha – Copied from the Philipino movie Diwa ng Awit
Enough info for suing Mr. Plagiazer ??? 🙂
From your list, I’ve seen the Taiwanese film Three Times and Jab We Met.
Indian putzheads are still blowing this dickhead (Imtiaz Ali) with such fervor one would think his was the last schlong on the planet!
As with the Highway/Chase post, I will watch all of the films and see if indeed they too were lifted.
I will, of course, post my thoughts in separate blog posts. Give me some time.
See your President bow in front of our Amma!
Ha ha ha.
One of the images in your link describes Amma as “King“…
So does that mean your Amma is Transgendered? 😉
Photoshopped or not, your link proves (the existence of these images) that India is truly a land of cock-suckers! 🙁
Just read the link posted by shadowfax and scrolled down the page to read comments.
Comments section was much more funny with guys from Tamilnadu, Karnataka and Kerala lashing out each other, who is superior.
Typical Indian infighting.
You write: Comments section was much more funny with guys from Tamilnadu, Karnataka and Kerala lashing out each other, who is superior.
There’s no such thing as a superior ape!
If Tamils are going berserk at Amma turning 66, think what they’ll do when she turns 69.
