Just watched the movie today. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't a BAD movie. But I couldn't help feeling the movie could be better. Vidya and Rani acted very well, the music was awesome and the subject of the movie was gripping. But I feel the screenplay was the problem. What could have been a taut script ended up dragging, especially in the second half. There were times when I was just waiting for the next thing to happen. I feel like more attention should have been paid to Meera's character and what her character went through.

I'd recommend this movie simply for the superlative performances.

Business Talk With Taran Adarsh  
The jinx lies shattered!

January 12, 2011 - 08:03 IST

The jinx is broken. For some inexplicable reason, the first release of every year hasn't worked at the box-office. It's strange, but even film-makers were wary of releasing their films in the first week. Film people - most of them - are a superstitious lot and the last thing they would ever want is a 'wrong' release date. But the weekend numbers of NO ONE KILLED JESSICA, the first release of 2011, should change the mindset.

Besides the jinx factor, NO ONE KILLED JESSICA had two more factors going against it - the cold wave, especially in North India and the general perception that women-centric/heroine-oriented films don't work at the box-office. Also, a tiny section of the industry feels that English titles have their limitations. Besides, another section of the industry feels that films inspired by real-life episodes/biopics are a strict no-no since they lack entertainment value. How weird can people get? Hopefully, NO ONE KILLED JESSICA should silence these naysayers, who refuse to change with the changing times.

NO ONE KILLED JESSICA gathered momentum with each passing day and is maintaing well on weekdays at plexes of metros.

'N.O.K.J.' ECONOMICS

Now let's look at the economics of NO ONE KILLED JESSICA. The cost of production is approx. Rs. 9 cr, while UTV spent an additional Rs. 5 cr on P & A, which means the final cost of the film works out to approx. Rs. 14 cr. Fortunately for UTV, they have recovered the entire investment from the sale of Satellite and Music Rights of the film, besides selling Mumbai and Delhi-U.P. territories for a handsome price. The revenue generated from India theatrical + Overseas + Home Video should only add to the profits for UTV.

Now let's dissect the business of NO ONE KILLED JESSICA. The major revenue of the film has come in from multiplexes, especially from urban centres. Centres like Delhi [despite the cold wave], Mumbai, Pune, Kolkata, Bangalore specifically have performed the best and have contributed a large chunk of the revenue. Sure, NO ONE KILLED JESSICA is a multiplex film and has therefore performed the best at plexes, but let's not forget that 75% of the total revenue is generated from plexes these days [on a film like this]. I expect the Week 1 to end at approx. Rs. 20 cr + nett, which means UTV should have a share of approx. Rs. 10.5 cr to Rs. 11 cr at the end of Week 1 from India alone. Good, good!

Yeah even I felt the movie could've been a lot lot more better and more hard hitting. I was a bit disappointed. That said, it aint a bad movie but not mind blowing either as I had expected or hoped it would be. It lacked that PUNCH!!

I loved some parts but some scenes made you cringe-- For instance, the defendant's mom saying meri monu ko blah blah was ridiculous. Sabrina's mom acting was a bit OTT.

P.S. Love ur AVI. McFayden was hot as Mr. Darcy but it's Colin Firth for me ;)
