Making a mark

Aamir Khan has done it again. His patriotic film "Mangal Pandey — The Rising" has made a noticeable impact at the box-office once again. Despite historical distortions in the film, the audience seems to like it. But the trade verdict is that the film will not be able to attract a consistent crowd, as it is no "Lagaan". Anyway, producer Bobby Bedi and others are happy, as the film has taken an extraordinary opening all over India and overseas, and is at number 10 at the U.K. box-office, the best ever opening of the year for a Bollywood movie.
