Prince had done average business.

Prince had done average business.

Kookie V. Gulati’s film Prince had done average business in the last three weeks after being released in early April, 2010. It had been produced by Kumar S. Taurani and music had been composed by Sachin Gupta.

In the film Vivek Oberoi played the role of a great thief. He realized one morning that he had a gunshot wound in his hand which he could not remember from where he had got it. He came to know that his name was Prince. He worked for a person named Sarang played by Isaiah. His girlfriend’s name was Maya, played by Aruna Shields.

Vivek Oberoi was wanted by Indian intelligence agency called IGRIP who dealt with white collar criminals across the world. He met a new girl everyday who claimed herself to be Maya. He had also hidden a heist which he never remembered. He had six days to solve the problem. The film revolved around that theme.

Although Vivek Oberoi had taken exceptional stunts and his performance in the film had been excellent, the Indian viewers had not received the film with that much enthusiasm. In the last 5 years, very few action films had done exceptional business, and that too under big banners, like Abbas Mastan’s film Race, are the ones which brought great revenue. Last year Vivek Oberoi’s matured performance in the film Kurbaan also could not revive the box-office of the film, inspite of the story being interesting.

The songs like “oh mere khuda” and “aa bhi jaa sanam” sung by Atif Aslam was well received by the audience. But save them, the music also could not create sensation. All these factors contributed to the average business of the film.

Bollywood industry is looking forward to the upcoming releases like Rajneeti, Guzaarish, Kites, Ravan, etc. , which can change the fortune of the industry. In the first four months of the year none of the films created any sensation. Let us hope the films to be released later on in the year would be successful.
