The battle last friday at the box office was between Harman Baweja’s Love Story 2050 and Imraan Khan’s Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na. The verdict is out and the clear winner is Jaane Tu produced by Aamir Khan. Exactly the opposite was expected though. Love Story was expected to open big, while Jaane Tu was supposed open slow and then grow on word-of-mouth.
But the much hyped sci – fi futuristic Love Story 2050 starring newcomer Harman Baweja and Priyanka Chopra and directed by Harry Baweja, has surprised and shocked one and all with a poor opening at the boxoffice.
The movie released on over 700 prints all over India, opened to 30 – 35% collections. The opening at smaller centres especially at single screen has been, a very disappointing 10 – 15%. On saturday the collections picked up slightly and remained steady on Sunday. But the movie has witnessed a heavy fall on Monday.
LS 2050 made at a staggering budget of 50 crores will fail to recover costs and the distributors will suffer heavy losses.
Harman’s Love Story has also failed to make any impact overseas, the final figures for the weekend are awaited.
So overall, Love Story 2050 could well go on to be one of the biggest disasters of the year so far at the box office. Harman Baweja too has received a mixed reponse for his performance, from the audience as well as the critics.
More BO updates shortly.
