Critics thrash Joker, washout at the box office

After Players, Tezz and Department, Joker is likely to be the 4th major disaster of the year. The film is an absolute washout on Day 1. The morning shows, as we reported earlier, were as low as 10-15% at places. Infact, a few exhibitors have reported that some shows were cancelled due to very low occupancy.

The film picked up slightly for the noon/evening shows, but the collections remained low. The mass centres have performed slightly better due to the presence of Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha.

The biggest cause of worry though, is the negative word-of-mouth. The critics have absolutely thrashed the film. On our review scale – we currently have 11 critic reviews – not a single positive review, 2 average and 9 negative.

The writing is on the wall for Joker. The target audience – children and family – is the only glimmer of hope as they venture out to watch films on Saturday and Sundays.

Joker is also likely to be the first commercial failure for Sonakshi Sinha, whose first two films Dabangg and Rowdy Rathore were ‘Blockbusters’.



  • Common akki fans show ur face to public :D :P u guys were saying joker will be an all time blockbuster… What a joke! What happened now?? U guys always speak about other actors… Now this is a big tight slap on akki fans n akki… Aage se auk@@t me rehna

  • Akki fans always speak bad about other actors… They always speak bad n vulgar on other actor’s link without any reason… They r the most pathetic n low grade people i’ve ever seen… Every other actor fans have standard but not akki fans… Now they have run away!! :D LOSERS!!

  • <Nishad 69. tu apne barei mei samajtha kya hei. Joker flop hui tho kya hua, akki next movies tho blockbusters honge, lekin tera hakle srk ki next movie tho mr. aur mrs. Khanna se bi badi disaster flop hogi.

  • @ ghajini. Not only your name is ghajini, but your a big mad mental fellow. Even if i suck and lick srk’s ‘banana and buns’ daily, it is none of your business. Srk’s next movie will surely break 3idiots record but salman’s dabaang 2 will not even break the record of mr. aur mrs. Khanna. And akki is the khiladi of making super disasters, dont compare him with salman and srk.
