Anjaana Anjaani got a slow opening.

Anjaana Anjaani got a slow opening.

Ranbir Kapoor Priyanka Chopra starrer Anjaana Anjaani got a slow opening in its first week. The film was initially slated to be released on 24th September. Instead it was released on 1st October, 2010, after the Allahabad High Court verdict on Ram Janmabhoomi in Ayodhya.

Anjaana Anjaani had been another big budget film after Dabaang. Ranbir Kapoor, a citizen of New York City had a huge loan of 12 million dollars. Priyanka Chopra, a citizen of San Francisco was also perturbed with her life and jumped from George Washington Bridge. While both of them wanted to commit suicide each one bumped into one another.

The coastguards saved them. Ranbir Kapoor very soon deliberately got himself hit by a car while Priyanka Chopra fell on the bridge and broke her neck. They became intimate to each other during the period of hospitalization. They tried to commit suicide 5 times in their lives without success.

They decided to commit suicide on 31st December. 20 days were left in their lives. So both of them tried to fulfill their unfinished dreams. They swam in Atlantic Ocean, went to Las Vegas, gave parties. At that time they came to know that they were attached to each other.

The film had been directed by Siddharth Anand, and produced by Sajid Nadiadwala and Sharan Kapoor. The music had been composed by Vishal Shekhar. Some of the songs were very impressive like “aas pass khuda” sung by Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, “anjaana anjaani” sung by Vishal Dadlani and Shilpa Rao, “tujhe bhula diya” sung by Mohit Chauhan, Shekhar Ravijiani and Shruti Pathak.

The timing of the release may have been one of the reasons for having slow response. Otherwise Ranbir Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra and Zaid Khan acted well. With Dabaang doing a business of around 150 crores, Anjaana Anjaani has a pressure in terms of showing reasonable success.

But the film is worth watching and considering the huge popularity of superstar Ranbir Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra, it is certain that slowly and gradually the film will pull crowds.
