Weakness – story dun and dusted and too lengthy.

Word of mouth – Single screens especially in UP and CP hold the key.

Multiplexes -maybe the are more into RO’S and not gangajal.

1st day collections – 5crore approx (depending on night  shows)

Keeping in mind the budget it’s a poor start

Prakash Jha Saab is a competent Director no doubt, but he has to realise their is a big difference in what worked in 2003 and what now might, not. OK he portrays what’s  reality in society but repetitive stuff often brings poor results at the box office as either you have KHAN’S (2 of them especially only do craps)  or something out of the box, only then it works.

Should it be watched – Yes off course if you love dhishum dhishum that too from a female protagonist, also this movie is all about ‘HOPE IS TOPE ‘which should always be  given maximum support.
