Prediction: Great film to fail... again.

After Anurag Kashyup's "Black Friday," an incredible film about the plotting behind the 1993 Bombings in Mumbai, director Nishikant Kamat is making a film titled "Mumbai Meri Jaan" about the commuter rail bombings that took place last year, which resulted in almost 200 deaths.

It took the government three years to actually allow "Black Friday" to release. While "Black Friday" focused on the conspiracy and planning behind the 1993 bombings, "Mumbai Meri Jaan" is a story that will be told from a reporter's eyes, who witnesses the deaths and bombings first hand.

"Black Friday," despite receiving rave reviews, failed at the box office. Sadly, "Mumbai Meri Jaan" will probably have the same fate.

Or maybe, the Indian public will actually realize that not all good movies have to be unrealistic... but maybe that's asking for too much.
