Vidur’s Film Diary – January 2011


It’s the 1st month of 2011. First release of the year opened quite well. But bad memories of the last year will take some time to get erased. Most of the films are still bombing with same regularity. Scenario is not very rosy yet and may take some time to stabilize.

To emphasise my point of view and to show the latest trends in the industry, I am reproducing  few relevant tweets of eminent trade analysts Mr. Taran Adarsh and Mr. Komal Nahta :
