Big disappointments!

By Bollywood Hungama

The two major releases this Eid, KIDNAP and DRONA, have proved disappointments, although KIDNAP is better in U.K. On face-value, the 5-day weekend figure of KIDNAP [£ 2,43,309] may seem impressive, but the fact remains that given the festival period and a long 5-day weekend, everyone was expecting the film to touch approx. £ 3,50,000, but the negative reports have hit the film hard. On the other hand, DRONA is a debacle of epic proportions in U.K.

In the U.S. too, DRONA hasn't lived up to the humungous hype. Even KIDNAP has been slow here.
