The movie generated enough buzz to take a thunderous
opening but it came as a shocker when Ram Gopal
Verma ki Aag opened to a poor response. Even the
people who did see movie did not like it. Some
critics went ahead and gave the film zero marks,
and a famous critic in a news channel threw an
egg on the camera just to show how much he disliked
Amitabh Bachchan, who played the hero in the
older version, is playing the baddie in this film.
He had been vehemently promoting the movie for
the past couple of weeks but when he saw it for
the first time he seemed to have detested the
movie so much that he is said to have stormed
out of the theatre half way through. This is a
big blow for Ram Gopal Verma as his another directorial
venture Darling is hitting the screens this Friday.
