Strong words from some of the trade analysts on My Name Is Khan, three well known trade pundits speak.
Komal Nahta – My Name Is Khan is far from entertaining and also too boring for the general masses. For the heavy budget at which it has been made, it will keep its worldwide distributors (Fox Searchlight) in the red. Business in big cities, especially in South India, Muslim centers and overseas will be better but it will be below the mark in North India as also in smaller centers and single-screen cinemas. It may be appreciated by the class audience but the masses will reject the film.
Vinod Mirani – The curiosity value is over, it seems. The picture has suffered a considerable drop in collections on Monday,
The most shocking words though came from Amod Mehra, another well know Trade Analyst “At this moment, it appears the film will not be able to recover the cost because it has been sold at a high price.” On the film receiving 5 star reviews, he said “Earlier there were paid previews of the film, now there is paid review of the film.”
