Released on October 16, 2009 “Blue” is a social action thriller. Its underwater thrilling actions are the major signifying factors. As a whole, the movie was a flop as it earned negative response from critics and could not impress film viewers. The movie could do an average business on the Bollywood Box Office. It would be stunning to know that in 2009, once the movie was released, it broke the record of Bollywood’s most expensive film ever produced by that time.

A Bollywood film is incomplete without music. Although, Blue Film of Katrina Kaif is an action thriller however; it incorporates beautiful music by world famous A. R. Rehman. lt has a total of seven tracks, out of which “Chiggy Wiggy“ got highest fan club. The song is written by Abbas Tyrewala and sung by famous Kylie Minogue, Sonu Nigam and Suzanne D’Mello.
In all, Blue Film of Katrina Kaif is a nice family type movie, however; it could not get as much popularity on the box office as it was expected out of it. A sum of Indian Rupees 75 Crore was spent on it and in return it could gather only 164 Crore, which is not a healthy response against such a huge investment.
