Kambakht Ishq released on July 3rd 2009 and was slammed by the critics. The response from the audience was mixed, but the film today completes its 50 day run at the box office, quite a rarity in the multiplex era.
The Akshay Kumar film did well in its first weekend, witnessed a drop on its first Monday and eventually crashed in its second week. But surprisingly the mindless comic caper, also starring Kareena Kapoor, has managed to sustain to complete its 50 day run, with the collections remaining on the lower side.
There is no clarity over the nett Indian gross of Kambakht Ishq, but according to our calculations, should be nothing more than 48 – 49 crores; which is good but below average for a movie starring one of the biggest stars in Bollywood today.
