Overseas box office report for the Bollywood flicks is not good except Don 2. The films made lackluster business to be best avoided in dashing off. Well, the men in white Abbas-Mustan’s directed thriller Players did not ignite anything inside the moviegoers which is why they did not turn up to the theaters and instead preferred other things to this flick. The poor business the film made around $950,000 in its first weekend. The enthusisaim of the leaduing stars – Abhishek Bachchan, Bipasha Basu, Sonam Kapoor, Neil Nitin Mukesh and Sikandar Kher- dropped badly. They all were much high with spurits of big success with this flick since Abbas-Mustan are considered to be the success formula in industry. But one should remember every day is not Sunday. They are humans and can mistakes. Thus they could not make the flick which can run at the box office and be liked by the audiences.
The movie made as follows from various international markets:
(UK) United Kingdom - £110,000
America - $215,000
UAE - $280,000
Australia - $45,000
Shah Rukh Khan and Priyanka Chopra starrer Don 2 (directed and produced by Farhan Akhatr) has still been going pretty strong at the box office. The film made around $11.25 million (INR 59 crores) so fare. It is said that Don 2 happens to be the 3rd highest grosser in international market and as per last reports, the film collected around $12 million in overseas. Khan has also been nominated for Filmfare in the best actor category award for Don 2.

The business at the domestic (India) box office for the recently released films has been much lower. The films released on Friday witnessed the poor results at the ticketing windows. Naseeruddin Shah, Kay Kay Menon, Ravi Kisen and Atul Kulkarni starrer Chaalis Chauraasi saw the poor opening and the business. Shiney Ahuja’s comeback vehicle Ghost, for which he was sure for the success, fell badly at BO. The film was badly criticized and got very bad reviews from the critics. There was hardly any good review for the movie. And all the critics termed it a funny horror film. The opening and the business both were much bad.
Other releases like Sadda Adda and Tutiya Dil were even more worse than the above two. Abbas-Mustan’s directed lavish thriller Players starring Abhishek Bachchan, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Bobby Deol, Sikandar Kher, Bipasha Basu and Sonam Kapoor witnessed the poor results even in the second week. The film collected so far 21.50 crores (nett). Second week for the film started off dull. Even the movie could not complete 30 crores in two weeks. It is said that Players saw the lowest final collections ever from biggest 2000 screen plus release. It is a big disaster.
Shah Rukh Khan’s Don 2 has still been going on strong. The movie made 5 crores nett collections in its third week making the total of 103.25 crores (nett). In Mysore, Don 2 becomes the second giant grosser of all time and will doll up the share for distributor as 4 crores approx in the entire circuit. It is a big hit.

But most recently Ranbir showed his love for the gal again. This is what happened that Kapoor boy was in London days back to meet his lady love but when Nargis called him and informed that she was in New York, he simpled found himself dragging towards her. He took the immediate flight to New York and went there to meet her.
Well, those were just rumors since Ranbir is deep in love with the gal. Nargis is reportedly learning Hindi these days, as she wants to make career in Bollywood now. She is also being offered the endorsements by many coveted brands since her worth level raised post the success of the movie. Now the films are being dished to the gal. Well, the fact remains that both are still in love.

Naseeruudin Shah, Kay Kay Menon, Atul Kulkarni and Ravi Kisen’s Chaalis Chauraasi is finally out in cinemas. The film’s promos and the trailers have ignited the liking inside the moviegoers and now the final product is out. The talented starcast is enough to drag the audience to the halls and even the luminous starcast is also enough for the film to make waves with the audiences.
The director of the film Hriday Shetty has not done any home work before making the film and it is pretty obvious from the movie. The story is okay and the script is a big lackluster having nothing great to rave about or even make movie on but it is the talented stars of the film who carry the film on their shoulders by making it watchable. Shetty’s robbery-gone-wrong turns up good with the presence of these brilliant stars.
Apart from the bad scripting, the film nonetheless manages to run with the viewers. The film talks about the four men who plans to rob Rs. 20 crores. These four include Bobby (Atul Kulkarni) who is a singer at a bar, Shakti (Ravi Kisen) is a drug dealer, Albert (Kay Kay Menon) happens to be a car thief and Pankaj (Naseeruddin Shah) is an ex-professor of English. These four hatches a plan of robbing Rs. 20 crores in police’s guise. What happens when they embark on the journey? This is what Chaalis Chauraasi is all about.
The script as mentioned above is pretty ordinary. The direction is simply super weak. The other departments like cinematography and editing are just about passable. Music is below average.
The film rescues because of the four brilliant stars – Naseeruddin Shah, Ravi Kisen, Kay Kay Menon and Atul Kulkarni. All deliver super performances to praise big about.
On the whole, Chaalis Chauraasi has nothing and carries weak script and direction but contains the brilliant performances by the leadings stars who save the movie.
