With no new release (Hindi) even this Friday, the 'Bajirao Mastani' and 'Dilwale' battle will continue this week too!

The 125 crore (EROS's procurement price) Sanjay Leela Bhansali directed Priyanka, Ranveer and Deepika starrer 'Bajirao Mastani', was expected to lag behind SRK-Kajol's 'Dilwale' in India. Intially it did, but is slowly but surely catching up on it.

The film has put up a good performance even the overseas grossing $7.50m (approx), especially in the US, till the second weekend.


 Dilwale  Verdict: Awaited

The 100 crore (landing cost, withouth SRK's fees, who being the producer will share the profits), Gauri Khan’s Rohit Shetty directed Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol, Varun and Kriti venture, 'Dilwale', was expected to dominate 'Bajirao Mastani'. However, after the opening weekend it was 'Bajirao Mastani' which turned the tables on it.

'Dilwale' is splendind in the Overseas (barring US) grossing $17m, till the second weekend.


 Hate Story 3  Verdict: Hit
 Weekly Earnings: India Rs.0.40 crore  Total Earnings: India Rs. 45.40 crore
Meanwhile T-Series’s Vishal Pandya directed, 'Hate Story 3', starring Sharman Joshi, Zarine Khan, Karan Singh Grover and Daisy Shah starrer ends up as a clean hit, given the very reasonable raw budget (10 crore)!

 PB Rating: 9.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 62 unique users): 5.87
 Director: Imtiaz Ali  Producer: Sajid Nadiadwala
 Music: A R Rahman  Lyrics: Imtiaz Ali
 Starring: Ranbir Kapoor, Deepika Padukone, Jawed Sheikh and Sushma Seth

Checking out Imtiaz Ali’s Ranbir-Deepika starrer, 'Tamasha', the film will be lucky to break even (even after accounting for non-theatrical rights), given the high raw cost (60 crore).

'Tamasha' has done very well in the Overseas grossing $6m.


 Sorry Daddy  Verdict: Disaster
 Weekly Earnings: -  Total Earnings: India Rs. 0.65 crore
'Concluding with 'Sorry Daddy', the film is a washout!
