2001 The year of Underdogs:

The terror attacks on Mumbai have affected film business and how! The two new releases, OYE LUCKY! LUCKY OYE! and SORRY BHAI!, have taken a severe beating at the box-office. While OYE LUCKY! LUCKY OYE! had a 15% – 20% occupancy over the weekend, SORRY BHAI! cut a sorry picture almost everywhere. In fact, the management of theatres/plexes were forced to cancel shows due to lack of audiences.

The coming Friday [December 5] was to witness a plethora of medium-budget/low cost films, like MAHARATHI, DIL KABADDI, KHALLBALLI – FUN UNLIMITED, OH, MY GOD!!, MEERABAI NOT OUT and KAASHH… MERE HOTE. However, the producers of KHALLBALLI – FUN UNLIMITED and KAASHH… MERE HOTE have decided to shift the film to a latter date.

“The timing isn’t right,” Riaz Haider, the Project Head of One More Thought [KHALLBALLI – FUN UNLIMITED] says. The new date will be decided in a day or two. On the other hand, KAASHH… MERE HOTE has been shifted to December 19. “Two reasons why we postponed our film,” music director turned producer Shravan Rathod tells me, “With so many films arriving on December 5, we felt it would kill the prospects of our film. Two, it’ll take time for people to come out of the depressing phase [the terror attacks in Mumbai]. Hence, we decided to shift KAASHH… MERE HOTE to December 19.”

It would be interesting to see how MAHARATHI, DIL KABADDI, OH, MY GOD!! and MEERABAI NOT OUT perform this Friday.
