1. Outdated theme: The story of the tormented long-suffering wife went out of fashion with Radhika’s gravity defying ponytail in the track ‘Mera Pati Mera Devta
Hai‘ from the film Naseeb Apna Apna. Already seen the story of the pain-lashed wife in movies as far-ranging as Shakti Samanta’s Amar Prem and Sujoy Ghosh‘s
2. Piku ka Dil Dhadakne Do: The stupendous May releases Piku and Tanu Weds Manu Returns continue to lord over the box office. Plus there is Dil Dhadakne Do
which has captured the imagination of city audiences. The audiences are in the mood for happy films. Would Vidya Balan‘s weepie act find takers?
3. The Jurassic factor: The biggest blow to the Bhatts who have lately been going through an unbroken string of flops is the presence the new installment of the Jurassic Park series
in Indian theatres. Experience has shown that audiences prefer Hollywood spectacle to Bollywood tamasha.
4. Emraan Hashmi: Do you really want to see Emraan Hashmi as a classic all-sacrificing lover-boy? The role looks like a repetition of Aditya Roy Kapur‘s character in Aashiqui
5. Tragic ending: Apparently there is no happy ending for the wretchedly unhappy wife. We know Mohit Suri loves tragic endings. The audiences approved of it in Aashiqui 2 and Ek
Villain. Will they walk out weeping one more time?
