Overseas: Realism bites the dust!

By Bollywood Hungama

Hardcore realistic films sans face-value don’t find many takers in Overseas. Last week’s TRAFFIC SIGNAL [U.K.] and this week’s BLACK FRIDAY [U.S.A.] prove this theory right. Despite tremendous appreciation, BLACK FRIDAY has failed to generate a decent initial in the U.S.

Meanwhile, all eyes are on EKLAVYA – THE ROYAL GUARD, the third biggie of 2007 [after GURU and SALAAM-E-ISHQ], which is expected to fetch a big start!

Weekend: February 9 – 11, 2007.
