3. A total one-man show establishing once again the drawing power of Salman Khan.

1.  Expectations were not very high as the marketing strategy was low – but it did reasonable business at the box-office.
2. Exploited Fiji Islands well. Looks like a good holiday spot. The subsidy for shooting there helped the producer immensely. Will be attractive for more filmmakers to head there.

1. The music didn’t really culminate in box-office numbers.

3. Amount fetched from Satellite Rights saves it somewhat but still a losing proportion due to unimpressive Overseas and Domestic theatrical run.
4. Sub-distributors who acquired the movie on MG basis for a high cost will end up losing more than 25-40 per cent of their investment.
