KANK goes past Rang De Basanti in US box office!
Aug 19, 2006
KANK, the ‘BIG’ Karan Johar movie opened ‘BIG’ in all cities. But it has not been able to sustain the initial momentum. The public opinion is not too positive and it seems as if Karan Johar’s spotless record may just be spoilt here. This is not to say that the movie is going to be a loss-making proposition, far from that.

The bumper opening has guaranteed returns for the movie. But will the movie be one that stays in the minds of people long after it leaves theatres, unlikely.

The reason that industry experts seem to be giving is that the theme of the movie is too outlandish (if that word can be used) at least to the conservative (at least from the exterior) Indian population. The theme is not finding acceptance, especially among family audience and happily married couples. After all, extra marital relationships are still taboo in India.

But that’s only in India, what about elsewhere. Take for instance New York where this theme would seem far more realistic than far fetched. The movie is simply being loved in that part of the world. The fact that the movie was shot there also adds to its appeal. It is reportedly on its way to breaking all records set by previous Hindi movies, Kabhi khushi kabhi gham and Rang de Basanti, and that too by a long way. Theater reports are suggesting a huge net gain for the movie. Looks like Karan Johar not only made the movie in New York, but also for New York.
