How quickly the time passes by? It feels just like yesterday when all the lovebirds were fluttering around celebrating the month of February, the universal month of Love. And now it's March, a month dedicated to celebrating Women. But more on that from BollyCurry later, let's talk some business.

March opened up to two fairly hyped movies; the Ram Gopal Varma thriller drama based on the real life events of Mumbai terrorist attacks, The Attacks of 26/11, and the John Abraham starrer light-hearted rom-com, I, Me Aur Main. Both movies are drastically different in genres but alas, share the same fate when it comes to weekend collections of the first week. Both the movies were backed up by big production houses and starred, if not complete A-list ensemble, fairly known actors. 

RGV is probably the most consistent director of Bollywood. No amount of failure can affect him. In fact, one can hardly remember his last successful BO venture. The Attacks of 26/11, based on a issue that shocked the nation, falls flats. The movie did pick up after its opening day owing to the good reviews it got from the critics but it wasn't enough to keep the reception strong. The movie managed to earn approx 5 crores over the weekend.

I, Me Aur Main is John Abraham's first solo release after Force. The rom-com genre is always welcome in Bollywood but for it to really make a mark, it has to offer something unique in the done to death genre. Unfortunately, I, Me Aur Main doesn't quite hit that mark. The critics weren't all that excited by the movie and it seems neither were the audience. Compared to the opening day, the movie managed to do more business by Sunday but ultimately ended up earning a little more than 5 crores over the weekend. Nah, not all that impressive.

On a brighter note though, Kai Po Che! is going steady as the days pass by! So, if you aren't all that excited by the prospect of watching a real life thriller or a nothing special rom-com, you can always turn to watch some old and classic movies. We at BollyCurry aren't the ones to judge anyone!

    Iam not shocked for the fate of RGVs movie but a little disappointed for Johns movie not doing well even though I had a feeling it might be average.
