The year started with a bang when 'Guru' was proclaimed a hit. Trade
analysts said it was a sign of a trend for the rest of the year. They
were wrong, however.
After 'Guru', the next blockbuster was 'Partner'. True, there were some
considerable hits in between – 'Namastey London', 'Shootout at
Lokhandwala', 'Aap Ka Surroor', 'Bheja Fry', and so on – but none of
them were blockbusters.
Till this Friday, there have been only three films that have crossed
the 50-crore net – 'Partner', 'Chak De India', and 'Heyy Baby'. Now we
hope that a few more movies are added to this elite group, with
releases such as 'Laaga Chunari Mein Daag', 'Bhool Bhoolaya', 'Om
Shanti Om', 'Saawariya', 'Wanted', and 'Taare Zameen Par'. We still
have a quarter of a year left.
