I Just know it from the title song. My parents and me (I dont remember the details obviously) were in Kolkata to visit someone, tried to watch this movie....didn't get tickets as it was housefull. My folks told me they went for Maharaja instead (some Govinda movie)which was running nearby and hardly had more than 20 people for the show.
