Break Ke Baad – A disappointment

The highly expected film “Break Ke Baad” by Danish Aslam, dealing with the common story of young actors in today’s film industry at Bollywood, having to choose between their careers and their love lives, is not doing as well as expected. Although it has being compared with the love story happening between the leading actors of “Slumdog Millionaire”, Dev Patel and Freida Pinto, the film was considered to be unrealistic and quite boring.  

After a while since it was released, it only received a PB rating of 4.0 points out of 10. The public give it even less, only 2.96. In India, the film only won 30 crore. Overseas, the film was received slightly better, but only manage to record winning of £85,709 in the UK and $310,329 in the USA. Deepika Padukone and Imran Khan are the leading actors, who did not manage to attract a crowd. Shahana Goswami, Navin Nischol, Yudishtir Urs and Lillete Dubey are also featured  in the film. This romantic film was a disaster to for the director, who hoped for much more.
