One reason could be that more than six months have elapsed between the time it opened in the West, and it's been out in DVDs in the Indian market for that period. The other could be, according to trade watchers, the traditional Indian antipathy to making a connection with a continuing cast and characters: last month, the second part of The Lord Of The Rings, The Two Towers also did marginal business as compared to the first.
