Jhootha Hi Sahi box office update. Jhootha Hi Sahi, starring John Abraham and Pakhi, had a start with about 35 to 40 percent occupancy, but the mixed reviews it has got from critics isn’t going to help it pick up much in the days ahead.
Mallika Sherawat’s Hisss, which has been unanimously panned by every critic, had a good start at single screen theatres. But the bad reviews and negative word of mouth might slow its run at box office.
Both Jhootha Hi Sahi and Hisss have got a poor start at the UK box office.
On the other hand Rakta Charitra, Ram Gopal Varma’s most violent film to date, had an excellent start in Andhra Pradesh. The film’s Telugu version is running to house-full shows, and the reason could be that the film is based on the story of the bloody rise to power of the Andhra politico Paritala Ravi, played by Vivek Oberoi in the film. In the north, however, Rakta Charitra (Hindi) got a below average response from cine buffs, with mere 25 to 30 percent occupancy in theatres.
Which of the three films will sail and which will sink at box office will be clearer by Monday.
