Apropos my comments on the box office fate of Aap Kaa Surroor in my earlier post, it appears that I am mistaken. Rediff.com reports that AKS is shaping up to be one of the biggest hits of the year. Having seen just twenty-odd people in the cinema hall when I watched the movie at the Innovative Multiplex in Bangalore on Saturday evening, I assumed that the fate of the movie was similar elsewhere. Apparently, this is not so: the movie seems to have enjoyed a bumper opening in most centres across India.
My opinion of the movie stands: I still think it is hopeless. However, my comments on the movie’s performance don’t. When HR’s numerologist told him to make a movie whose quality was better than the spelling of its title, he knew what he was talking about. It has indeed helped.
