If new releases of the week gone by hardly threw any impressive numbers, nothing better is expected in days to come. In fact, it is only going to get worse with as many as seven Hindi releases arriving this weekend. Astonishing, but true! These films are ‘Rabba Main Kya Karoon’, ‘B.A. Pass’, ‘Calapor’, ‘Chor Chor Super Chor’, ‘Love In Bombay’, ‘Prague’ and ‘Bhadaas’.
‘Rabba Main Kya Karoon’ should get a decent release due to the presence of Arshad Warsi. The film has seen some promotion coming its way and is directed by Amrit Sagar who is the man behind National Award winner ‘1971’. With this film he has taken an altogether different route by opting for a family-comedy instead. Though one doesn’t see the huge opening footfalls on Day One itself, it is the only film which still has some chances to survive for an entire week. Its fun quotient may allow it to hang in there for a while.
‘B.A. Pass’ has taken the festival route and may get some good reviews coming its way. It may be picked up by the connoisseurs of festival cinema. Rest have hardly seen any promotion and would struggle to see an all-India release for themselves.
In all, one can well expect another dull week for Bollywood till the big Eid release happens in the form of ‘Chennai Express’ a week later.
