The movie which is supposed to mark the comeback of the 90s queen of hearts Karishma Kapoor might not receive as much hype as anticipated by its makers. Though the producers left no stone unturned to create a much sought for promotional campaign the movie still seems to be lacking what we call the essential formula of a Bollywood hit. Based on the age old theme of reincarnation, Dangerous Ishq promises the audiences suspense but from the looks of it, everything seems pretty predictable.
The two elements of the film that the makers will be counting on are the comeback of Karishma Kapoor and the usage of 3D technology. I really doubt that either of this will do any good for this film.
Dangerous Ishq had a pretty dull opening all over the country with occupancy of merely 10-15% on an average. It seems the 3D version is doing a bit better but it’s still way below expectations.
Add to this the edge that Ishaqzaade is offering it. If there is no magic stroke and the film does not make a rising at the box office on Saturday we can be certain that it will be heading to the flop list of 2012. The movie would have done better if it did not have to face the competition from same day release Ishaqzaade and previous releases Vicky Donor, Jannat 2 and Avengers all of which seem to be doing still well at the Indian box office.
Let’s wait for a day and see how big a flop this movie proves to be.
The movie made a very small opening on the 1st day at the Indian box office. Making a mere 1.05 crores on Day 1, it seems the movie was rejected outright by the audiences. It seems Ishaqzaade did all the damage to a already damaged film. The comeback of Karishma was no comeback at all rather a huge downfall. Come Day 2 and the movie saw a further downfall making a mere 1 crores at the domestic box office. Sunday saw a bit better collection with 1.30 crores but the weekdays saw the sudden demise of the movie. The 1st weekend total of the film was a mere 3.35 crores.
Dangerous Ishq had a disastrous 1st week at the Indian box office. The movie made a mere 4.75 crores in it’s first and what seems to be the last week of the movie at the Indian box office. Another 0.25 crores at the overseas box office makes the films total collection yet 5 crores. Disastrous indeed!
