On the day after it was released the Ishaan Khatter-Ananya Pandey road film Khaali Peeli earned only a meager 1.7 /10 rating in the wordwide film database IMDB, making it one of the worst rated films in recent times.
A month ago it was Mahesh Bhatt’s Alia Bhatt-Sanjay Dutt starrer Sadak earning equally terrible ratings on IMDB.
With Khaali Peeli the problem is compounded as it was the Zee Network’s first Video On Demand(VOD) product. This meant that the customer paid Rs 299 to view what is probably one of the worst-rated movies in recent times.
While there is no immediate reaction to the fiasco from the Zee Network, sources say the Zeeplex VOD plan may be dropped entirely for future releases considering how badly it has been received by consumers.
