Clap of Films

2011 ended on a mixed note .  A very disturbing trend emerged in 2011 . Revenue from theatres went down . Revenue from other sources like ; audio , video and satellite rights are accruing to the overall earning of a film and making it profitable . Subsidies from foreign countries are also very substantial .

As usual 2012 looks promising . Film historian and critic Bhawana Somaaya tweets :

Vidur’s Film Diary – February 2011


NIGHT………………………………..12.15

After successful January , it is a dull month again. All the first week releases of February tanked badly. Month end release , though, did cheer up the mood of the industry.

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 :

Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji garners Rs. 15 crore (nett) at the box-office in its 1st weekend. More: http://bit.ly/e9Qn68
