If we go by past records, dussehra and especially the period after that(known as the dull pre diwali phase), is not a favourable period for releasing new releases, especially, big budget starcast films.
However, this year saw an exception as David Dhawan's Sanjay Dutt, Ajay Degn and Kangna Ranaut starrer, 'Rascals', managed to grab in excess of 7 crores last Thursday, that is on dussehra, on a day when most are busy with the festivities. In fact the extended 4-day weekend, has netted an impressive 23 crores!
The desitnation is the favourite of the makers as well as the audience as 'Ready' and 'Wanted' demonstrated. In fact almost every third Indian film (shot in the Overseas) prefers Banglok-Pattaya thanks to the friendly atmosphere, exotic locales and most importantly the low cost amenities, as compared to Europe and North America!
Before we leave, an interesting fact is that another Bangkok based film, Rajeev Khandelwal's 'Soundtrack' too has released this week, a rare occurance indeed!
