I'm not going to blame the fact whether there is a story or not. It's just that public isn't interested in wasting their time over such boring films. They can take a no-story as long as its bright colorful and the music makes them whistle and dance.

This is the truth about majority of audience. and Bombay Velvet overall wasn't appealing at all. Their level of intellect will not pull masses, not now not and not later. 


As for Ranbir now, he is no way near being called the next superstar. Besharam was commercial enough, and it rode on him only. Besharam truly showed everyone his status and now BV is an another nail in the coffin. Also he promoted BV less, and his private life with katty more. Not good :) results are here. 


spot on!LOL but I don't like Salman either.
Most of promotion time, Ranbir mentioned and clarified most of his private life with Katrina Whatever Sir Name.Clap

BV fulfills neither criteria. It is not a well-made film and it does not have popular actors in the league of Khans.



Yes they love to hide their failures by saying its for " niche" audience. You make BS you get BS...hope its a lesson for the other period movie makers.


True. BS is BS. No matter how many excuse you come up with.

As for period movies; Lagaan and Mughal-e-Azam are perfect examples of what you can achieve in period; movie making if you get them right and have a story to tell.

Especially Lagaan;
It had off-beat songs.
A hero in a Dhoti and a dark heroine.
It clashed with Gaddar; one of biggest hits of all time.
It was made on cricket.
Was shot in Bhuj.
And you had the actors speaking a different dialect all-together.

Almost all things that BW industry had in its not to do list. Yet it went on to be a smashing success at the BO.

When you have no story, you cant blame the public for it not working.

The fact is the " AUDIENCE" is always immature/ unprepared / regressive. The film makers rarely admit their direction was below the mark. Their casting went wrong. Their script was weak. They created a shoddy picture. They always blame the AUDIENCE.  Look at the title of this post ' due to lack of audience'  why? 
 
The title should have been " BOMBAY VELVET"  Fails to bring in audience.

Ranbir Kapoor-Anushka Sharma's 'Bombay Velvet' witnesses poor opening at box office

Friday, 15 May 2015 - 1:31pm IST | Agency: dna webdesk

Anurag Kashyap's directorial venture has failed to get crowd to the theatres in its morning shows on Friday

Ranbir Kapoor is undoubtedly one of the most loved actors from the younger breed of actors that we have in Bollywoodtoday. But off late, the actor has not had quite a luck at the box office. With his last two films - Besharam and Roy- fizzling out at the cash registers, Ranbir's hopes are pinned on his upcoming film- Bombay Velvet which hit theatres on Friday. But according to latest reports, the film has not been able to pull in good crowd to the theatres. 

Anurag Kashyap, who's famous for making dark, slightly off beat films has ventured in the commercial space with Bombay Velvet, also starring Anushka Sharma and Karan Johar in leading roles. But the gamble seemed to have not played well for the maverick director. The film that released on Friday has been receiving a poor response from the audiences and there have been regions where morning shows were cancelled due to lack of audience.

Trade analyst Komal Nahta tweeted, "Bad start for Bombay Velvet. 1st show at Fun, Gwalior cancelled due to lack of audience. Velocity, two Inoxes in Indore report poor collections." Nahta also added that even Roy had a better opening than Bombay Velvet. "Opening of disastrous Roy was better than Bombay Velvet initial in C.I. Sad day for film industry."

Given that it's a Ranbir Kapoor film, it's hard to believe that the audiences aren't flocking to the multiplexes to catch the film. Ever since the film has been announced, Bombay Velvetwas mired in controversies and the negative press seems to have taken a toll on the film'sbox office outing. With a budget of over Rs 100 crore, it will be a difficult task for the film to gain momentum and enter the hit brigade after this.

Then how do u explain the failure of Mangal pandey, veer, chandranukhi, asoka etc they were all period flicks like BVLOLa bad film is a bad film no one can save it, even Aamir couldn't have saved BV



Add Jodha Akbar/ Parineeta/ Lagaan extremely successful movies


JA, Parinneta and lagaan were family films with great music BV had nothing going for it Dark theme, period film with non commercial music , everyone knew it was going to flop

Somewhat u need an starpower to make film a hit. And no one expected this disaster opening of film. Now this has been proved no one has starpower and stardom like Khans whose names are enough to make films superhit.

[DIV]When Laagan was released no one had a idea that it has cricket, it was ATBB but hit none the less. [/DIV]
[DIV]Ofcourse Devdas was period movie, the story was set in feudal Bengal[/DIV]
[DIV]You are correct for RL. The costume and set up was periodic but it was of modern time[/DIV]
Lagaanwas such a big hit though it had clashed with Gadar which wasthe highest grosser of that year...

Both films had good content and both were good movies also. Both had posivitve WOM also. Although Gadar was the highest grosser of that year and ATBB and still has record of highest footfalls for an film.
