‘Peepli Live’ Becomes Nightmare For Horror Flick ‘Help’!
Bobby Deol, Mugdha Godse
‘Peepli Live’ is really a nightmare for another last Friday released movie ‘Help’, it is a horror flick which star casts Bobby Deol and Mugdha Godse. The effect of ‘Peepli’ was tremendous and it just over shadowed this wrong date released movie.
Although, ‘Help’ was not such a talked about movie, but naturally it needs viewers to at least watch it! In the midst of this ‘Peepli’ craze, this movie actually went unnoticed and fell flat on its face.
It is reported that ‘Help’ was only able to make occupancy of 35% on its release, while ‘Peepli’ had a fantastic weekend of 95% and grossed around Rs 21 million in its first weekend.
Amit Awasthi, Senior manager of Spice cinemas adds, “Peepli Live had a fantastic weekend of 95 per cent. Of the 18 shows playing at Spice, all shows on Saturday and Sunday went houseful. The content has been massively appreciated, but it is basically a multiplex gentry’s movie. We are expecting a run of at least three weeks for the movie.”
He further adds, “Helpon the other hand, had occupancy of only 35 per cent over four shows.”
The timing of the movie would probably have been re-worked, if the movie wouldn’t have been released on the same day of ‘Peepli’s’ release, it would have done at least some business. Guess, the movie-makers would soon premier it on television to get some meager amount of profit! Sorry Bobby and Mugdha ‘Help’ was actually a horror flick for both of you!
