Midweek B.O.: 'TMK' has huge weekend, yet below expectations, drops on Mon

- By Taran Adarsh, December 27, 2010 - 15:27 IST


Tees Maar Khan
Akshay Kumar, Akshaye Khanna, Katrina Kaif, Ali Asgar, Raghu, Rajiv, Aarya Babbar, Murli Sharma, Aman Verma, Apara Mehta, Sudhir Pandey, Sachin Khedekar, Vijay Patkar, Salman Khan [sp. app.], Anil Kapoor [sp. app.]Thoroughly entertaining first half. Plus, 'Sheila Ki Jawani'Loses grip in post-interval portions. Screenplay lacks punch. Jokes fall flatRecorded impressive numbers in its opening weekend. But the cracks started appearing faster than expected. The business fell on Saturday [noon shows] and then on Sunday [noon and evening shows]. The breakup:- Fri: 13 cr, Sat: 13.25 cr and Sun: 12 cr. Total: Rs. 38.25 cr nett. It's the third biggest opening of all times [DABANGG 48.5 cr, 3 IDIOTS/3 days 40 cr, TMK 38.25 cr, GOLMAAL-3 35 cr and RAAJNEETI 33 cr]. Ideally, the opening weekend of TEES MAAR KHAN should've been approx. Rs. 45 cr + nett, which means the film has fallen short of expectations. The latest development is, Monday morning and noon shows have witnessed a fall in business. At places, the fall was quite substantial

Toonpur Ka Superrhero
Ajay Devgn, KajolBlends animation with live characters wellScreenplay writing could be tighterHad a slow Friday, but picked up marginally during the evening shows on Friday as well as Saturday. However, the big jump was clearly missing. Dull

Band Baaja Baaraat
Anushka Sharma, Ranveer Singh, Neeraj Sood, Manmeet Singh Sawhney, Manish ChaudhariFresh, youthful and extremely entertaining. Plus, Anushka and Ranveer's first-rate performancesSlips in the post-interval portionsMaintained well despite new releases. Above average [theatrical business]

Isi Life Mein
Akshay Oberoi, Sandeepa Dhar, Salman Khan [sp. app.], Mohnish Bahl, Shagufta Ali, Prachi Shah, Aditya Raj KapoorThe lead pairPoor script and lackluster directionRemained a non-starter

Farah Khan's Tees Maar Khan was expected to be the eagle that soared at the box office this year. Instead, it has turned out a turkey, spurned by audiences and critics. Sukanya Verma explains what went wrong with one of her favourite directors's latest film.

Oh, how the mighty have fallen.

With Main Hoon Naa and Om Shanti Om, Farah Khan, the choreographer-turned-director, demonstrated her flair for dazzling aesthetics and quick-witted humour. As it turns out, both films earned blockbuster status and catapulted her in the league of the leading Hindi filmmakers.

Ever since she announced her new project, Tees Maar Khan, expectations were understandably greater than ever. Moreover, thanks to the overwhelming amount of publicity generated owing to its ritzy item number, Sheila Ki Jawani, the con caper was slated to become Bollywood's grand finale to 2010.

Instead of a hat trick, Farah's rights-purchased remake of Peter Seller's After the Fox was ruthlessly ravaged by audiences and critics.

Expectedly, the film opened well at the box office last weekend -- it is Akshay Kumar's best opening ever -- but collections dropped dramatically after disappointment dawned.

What went wrong?

1. Tacky, pedestrian writing

The Kunders -- Farah's husband Shirish and his brother Ashmith -- had some nifty source material at their disposal. But instead of getting inspired, they botched it up to produce a rather pedestrian, lacklustre, sluggishly written screenplay that was preoccupied in forcibly plugging its titular character's coolness instead of providing a solid enough characterisation to root for him.

Considering humour has such a strong identity in Farah's films and persona, the standard of comedy in Tees Maar Khan is appalling!

The jokes involving an Albino, gay cops or those snide remarks on industry wallahs are much too stupid or snarky to endorse.
From Zayed Khan to Deepika Padukone, Farah is known to extract engaging performances from the rawest of stars.

Here, she's got a reasonably talented bunch to work on, but the acting is completely out of bounds.

With the exception of Akshaye Khanna, everyone screams, hams, goes berserk.

It's almost like an audition for a circus.

Both Main Hoon Naa (Composer: Annu Malik) and Om Shanti Om (Composers: Vishal-Shekhar) boasted of some lilting music.

TMK (Composers: Vishal-Shekhar/Shirish Kunder), on the other hand, has nothing going for it barring the title track and Sheila....

Honestly, those two numbers too wouldn't have caught our attention if it wasn't for the incessant promotions on national television.

The songs are oh-so-blah and boring that even Farah's vivacious choreography doesn't help.

With great power comes great responsibility. And though Tees Maar Khan has the gall to equate himself with Spiderman, his creators appear much too supercilious to understand the virtue of evaluation.

Given the manner in which they have advertised the movie, this inferior piece of filmmaking is a reminder of why Bollywood is in dire need of self-inspection and how easily its folk allow success to sway their judgment.

I am confused though because some say it's a hit and some say it's a flop dunno what to believe

Tees Maar Khan Review: Why did we miss Aamir Khan immensely Posted by Riteish in Movies

Katrina Kaif is sexy, Akshay Kumar is hot (something that gives comfort in this wintry season) but Tees Maar Khan was utterly and obnoxiously cold. Farah Khan has made better films in the past in the form of 'Main Hoon Na' and 'Om Shanti Om' but this time she, simply, serves a trash which should have been dumped into some spam folder.

But, unfortunately, the hype that has enveloped the masses would tempt them to go and watch this movie without caring for the hard earned Rs 300 that a single ticket is costing in those flashy multiplexes.

With Christmas and a new year around, the movie buffs don't really mind spending a fortune on cinema tickets, but we feel for the masses who have got used to watching films of Aamir Khan over the Christmas and are now enduring the head-hammering and loud 'Tees Maar Khan' which is a so-called 'masala' film without any real spice to offer.

The story is just ordinary (in fact, almost absent); the dialogues are humourless; the plot is amiss and there are just things happening which never for a moment absorb our interest. 'Sheila Ki Jawani' number comes as a brief relief to the male voyeurs and Akshay again tries laboriously to compensate for the lack of content.

But after watching films like 'Taare Zameen Par', 'Ghajini' and '3 Idiots' over the last 3 Christmases, a 'Tees Maar Khan' is indigestible. One just hopes had Aamir released his 'Dhobi Ghat' this Christmas, we would have had a satisfying smile playing on our lips when we walked out of the theatres. But alas, it's no jingle bells this year!

It's sad, Katrina worked so hard for raajneeti and ajab gazab si..and this movie has harmed her. Now only movie can save akki is Patiala house. She should had read the script before signing it. I am sure she thought it would be something similar to OSO, where deepika got so much fame. lol

Bollywood's tyrannical, monopolistic nature disappoints me. Power just in hands of far and few, only what those few do is approved. Why is our cinema expecting greatness from slapstick comedies? Every industry even hollywood has its share massy movies made just for enjoyment spoofs are welcome in holly no matter if they are dissing the biggest blockbuster of the year, biggest and the most influencial person in the industry.. people can take a joke there... Its simply not the case in bollywood i guess, anyways i am bored of bolly... i don't care about aamir khan anymore i don't care about Srk anymore..i don't care about salman khan anymore.. lol.. then what is left in bolly?? hehe..Bollywood's aamireque "intellectual" cinema doesn't impress me.. people scapegoating comedies.. and expecting them to be politically correct and brilliant.. does not sit well with me anymore.. chalo whatever..
