KHPH, KMG and now Krrish.

Mangal Pandey as I predicted earlier, has opened to packed houses nationwide. It's opened to 100% in Mumbai and it's craze is unparalleled. So, I'm pretty sure it's going to be a hit.

Now, I want to talk about Hrithik Roshan now. Both Hrithik Roshan and Aamir Khan share one thing in common. They both used to sign movies sparingly. Hrithik doesn't have a movie for release this year while Aamir's last release (before Mangal Pandey) was Dil Chahta Hai in 2001. Currently, however, both have a number of films for release. Aamir Khan has "Mangal Pandey", then "Rang De Basanti" and then the untitled film with Kajol. Hrithik has "Dhoom 2" where he plays the villian, "Akbar-Jodha" with Aishwarya and Krrish.

However much, the hype about Hrithik, the fact remains, that he has given only two hits in recent years. Kaho Na Pyar Hai and Koi...Mil Gaya. Of course, Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham was a hit, but I'm sure even Hrithik will admit that it wasn't entirely due to him. Koi..Mil Gaya happened in 2003 so I think it's time for Hrithik to deliever. Personally, I believe Hrithik is a fine actor with great timing, stupendous with histronics and of course, those amazing dancing legs ! With some really big projects coming up, hopefully he can show that he can perform in projects outside his projection. Dhoom 2 should really be a big turning point for him.
