`Kaanchi` movie predictions: How will the Box Office react?

New Delhi: Mishti Mukherjee, who plays the titular role of Kaanchi is Subhash Ghai`s latest muse, has already surmised the movie saying that it is a `saga of today’s women. Traditional and contemporary and yet independent minded`.

Ghai is responsible for changing the names and turning around the luck of many a lead heroines, including Mahima Chaudhary. Unfortunately for the director-producer his last notable movie was way back in 1999, starring Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in the musical drama, `Taal`. While 15 years ago that worked, his other movies have not fared well at the Box Office or gained much critical acclaim.

Even with an impressive filmography which includes hits like `Karz`, `Karma`, `Khalnayak` and `Pardes`, Subhash Ghai has lately not made much of an impact on the big screen. `Yuvvraj`, starring Salman Khan, did fairly well, but that may have been because of `bhai`s star power and not Ghai`s prowess as a film maker. Even the sizzling chemistry between Hrithik and Kareena could not save the disappointing romantic comedy `Yaadein`, which got the director a lot of criticism.

His latest offering, which releases on April 25, has failed to create much hype, owing to the not so shiny star cast of Mishti Mukherjee and Kartik Tiwari. The musical drama also features veterans like Rishi Kapoor and Mithun Chakraborty.

The release date for the film has been postponed for a while now, and finally hits the screens this Friday, owing to 'Not bowing down to pressures of a release date'. It seems that it`s popularity will depend a lot on the commendation that the film may receive from the audience and critics.

Let`s wait and watch...
