Very disappointing!

By Bollywood Hungama

KITES has under-performed in the key international markets and let's substantiate it with hardcore facts and figures...

In U.K., the film should've crossed half-a-million Pounds in its opening weekend [including Thursday previews], but the film collected half of what was expected, despite the massive number of screens it was released in. In fact, the screen average of KITES is lower than JODHAA AKBAR, DHOOM 2, KRRISH, KOI... MIL GAYA, MAIN PREM KI DIWANI HOON, MUJHSE DOSTI KAROGE, K3G, YAADEIN and FIZA. See chart below.

In U.S., the film featured in the Top 10 list, which is very, very commendable, but given the number of screens [208], the opening weekend numbers are disappointing. In fact, the film should've collected anywhere between 1.75 million to 2 million in its opening weekend, thanks to so many screens. Here too, the screen average of KITES is lower than JODHAA AKBAR, DHOOM 2, KRRISH, LAKSHYA, KOI... MIL GAYA and MAIN PREM KI DIWANI HOON. See chart below.

In Australia too, it's the same story. The last two biggies have fetched double of what KITES has fetched in its opening weekend:- MY NAME IS KHAN [Aus. $ 4,37,687 on 37 screens; average: Aus. $ 11,829] and 3 IDIOTS [Aus. $ 3,98,595 on 20 screens; average: Aus. $ 19,930; Christmas holidays].

Weekend: May 21 - 23, 2010.
