Aamir Khan’s films are known  to get an impressive  opening always.  This is  the  first time I’ve seen such low collections for an Aamir starrer.And  it’s unlikely to get   any better because  audiences have not really liked the  film. Remaking a  forty-year old  Hollywood classic(Forrest Gumpdoesn’t seem  like  a  good  idea.”
