Bollywood movie ‘Khiladi 786’, which marked the return of actor Akshay Kumar to the Khiladi genre turned out to be a big disappointment at the box office. The movie was expected by many to overturn the collections of Aamir Khan’s ‘Talaash’.

The Akshay Kumar starrer has landed in second place on the international business charts during its first weekend, while the Aamir Khan starrer claimed the first spot in its second weekend. ‘Khiladi 786′ has done very poor business at the USA Box Office as well during its first weekend there, as compared to the second weekend collection of ‘Talaash’, which as has once again topped the charts.

Aamir Khan’s movie has collected $4,49,195 from roughly 161 screens, which took its 11 day total to Rs. 13.05 crores. This puts ‘Khiladi 786’ in the second spot and takes its first weekend collection to Rs. 1.25 crores from about 114 screens in the country. The Kareena Kapoor starrer ‘Talaash’ has also upstaged ‘Khiladi 786’ at the Australian Box office. The suspense-thriller collected A$ 1,11,300 from about 23 screens and took its 11 day total to Rs. 3.21 crores. The same position was also seen at the New Zealand box office.

The much awaited Aamir Khan starrer ‘Talaash’ has hit Indian theatres on November 30, 2012 . Filmmaker Reema Kagti surely knows how to maintain suspense and keep the audience entertained.

‘Talaash’ is a no-nonsense flick which has Aamir Khan, Rani Mukherjee and Kareena Kapoor in lead roles. The story begins with a film star’s car plunging off into the sea and this sets in motion the hunt to find the reason behind the   stars death.

Aamir Khan plays the role of an investigative cop (Suri) who is trying to investigate the high profile killing of the movie star and in the process mixes his personal and professional life together to make one messy situation.

Suri also loses his son and goes through various stages of grief, which has been potrayed well by the actor. The filmmaker then throws some twists and turns which take the story to places it should not go and eventually takes it off-track.

Rani Mukherjee plays the role of Aamir’s wife, who drifts apart from him as a result of their sons tragic death. Aamir has undoubtedly done a phenomenal job as a cop in the flick as he roams the streets of Mumbai trying to pick up clues thrown by the prostitute Rosy, played by Kareena Kapoor.

Overall the movie is a bit stretched and its the performances of the actors that saves Talaash. It is a decent film, but does not live up to the usual hype that is created by an Aamir Khan flick.

Bollywood star Aamir Khan is out with his latest movie ‘Talaash’ on November 30, 2012, which has been directed by Reema Kagti. The movie has marked the actor’s first commercial release after three years and he is seen in the role of a cop in Mumbai.

The production of the movie has leaned towards a darker story, instead of a mix of glamour, action and comedy. The new flick also has Kareena Kapoor as a prostitute and Rani Mukherjee as Khan’s wife.

Since the movie is all about its suspense, the actor did not let out much about the flick. Khan said, “I want the suspense to be there, that’s part of the promotions. Sometimes being quiet also might promote it”. The ‘3 Idiots’ actor also said that he found the suspense fulfilling, but at its heart this is a story about someone coming to terms with loss.

Khan was last seen in the movie ‘Dhobi Ghat’, which was also known as ‘Mumbai Diaries’ and was released in the year 2010. The last commercial hit for the actor was ‘3 Idiots’, which released in 2009. ‘3 Idiots’ was about three engineering students and their adventures and it went on to become the highest grossing Bollywood movie of all time. Khan’s earlier movie ‘Lagaan’ also became the third Hindi movie to be nominated for Oscars.

Bollywood star Ajay Devgn and production house Yash Raj Films were recently at logger heads over the exhibition of their respective films ‘Son Of Sardar’ and ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’. Now that issue has become a thing of the past as a new war between Aamir Khan’s thriller movie ‘Talaash’ and Akshay Kumar’s ‘Khiladi 786’ seems to be heating up.

Exhibitors however are not looking to jump into any messy situations and are holding off on signing a two-week contract for screening either of the movies. D Y Patni, a prominent exhibitor from the Gujarat-Saurashtra circuit said that they are waiting to get out of one situation and only then will they think about the next.

Patni added that no film or business is worth all the confusion that was recently caused and now no one is going to sign a contract. On the other hand, Hemant Shah of Tilak Exhibitors said that if the collections of Talaash are good then they would continue, as running the film would depend upon certain conditions. Shah added that there will not be any prior commitment to any film and that they will take films based on merit.

The distributors have said that the Delhi bookings for Talaash were done for June, 2012, as it was to be released at that time. Some exhibitors would need to go with that as they have signed, however from now on, the general consensus is that no prior two-week bookings will take place.

While Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor is preparing for her upcoming wedding day, she will be missing out on the music launch of the movie ‘Talaash’ to be held on October 18, 2012. Though ‘Bebo’ will not be present at the event, the filmmakers thought that as she was an integral part of the movie, a special segment should be planned for the ‘Jab We Met’ actress.

Sources from the production unit said that even though Aamir Khan is busy with his ‘Dhoom 3’ shooting schedule, he will be taking out some time to fly to Mumbai for a day for the event. However, Kareena would not be able to be a part of the launch. Aamir, along with producers Riteish Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar came up with an interesting idea to make the actresses present felt.

It is believed that every member of the cast will say something about Kareena and their association with her.
